Are you using a spin casting reel to play out the line?  That 2 oz. sinker
should be plenty heavy unless the line is getting all kinked up.  You could
try a little lighter line too.  Is the problem on the way up, or down?  I
use a .570 lead ball (about 1 oz.) and it works great.

I have spent a few fruitless hours trying to put a 1 ounce and later a 2
ounce metal sinker tied to some 17 pound test fishing line in order to put
one end of my 160m dipole up at 80 feet. I guess I will need to forget that
method and go with a bow. The line kept catching on small trees and bushes
and kept the line from going up and over the tree. Any ideas before I forget
the slingshot method?
