  1. And they are quiet and have very little amp draw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The Titanium Finish makes my black boat pop! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Go with Magnum Metalz. Plastic is for panfish. (Their motto-don’t kill me). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Number 3. Line to swivel, swivel to spoon. Dreamweaver Competition Swivels, size #2. (Welded ring, ball bearing, stainless steel). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I like Okuma Convector CV-45DS. Line counter is great, high speed retrieve is great, and the drag is great. Works for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Good question. I talked to the Slide diver owner and his only depth chart for the performance ring on the magnum weight is a 2 to 1 ratio on the “2” setting. I found that to be accurate on 50lb braid at 2.5mph. So, while confirming the 2 to 1 ratio, I set a slide diver to the “4” setting. I had to let out 100’ to get to 40’ (hit bottom) at 2.5mph. So that “4” setting is a 2.5 to 1 ratio. I routinely run the inside low slide divers on a “2” setting at 80’ down, so I let out 160’ of line. I routinely run my outside high slide divers on a “4” setting at 70’ down, so I let out 170’ of line. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. I’d save your money. Planers and dipsies (I only run magnums) are a no-go. Are you sure your dipsies are set on 3? You shouldn’t be tangling with your rigger with only 1 dipsy per one side of the boat. If the dipsy is loose and won’t stay on 3, super glue it in place. Nothing more aggravating.

  9. I’m with Sherman. Diawa Wilderness 8’ mediums for short leadcore (3, 5, 7) 8’6” medium heavy for Dipsies. 9’6” medium heavy for 10 color. Cheap and haven’t had a problem in 3 seasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thats what I did. Scotty release clipped to the ball. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah here is the terminal end and release (similar to the Black’s Release) that came with my Magnum Metalz Downrigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I agree with Force of One. Against the majority, I don’t like those Blacks releases because of the “crimping” of the brass tube around the cable loop that secures the terminal end. I don’t have any confidence in my crimps. I do like the Klincher or Big Jon terminal ends (identical). So, I go from my terminal end, to my Fishhawk probe, to a snubber, to my 15lb Shark. Additionally, and most hated by the Shark crowd, I drilled a hole in the rear shark fin to clip my Scotty release to. I know, sacrilege. It didn’t affect blow back and I like my clip on the weight. I also didn’t like the Scotty clip on the cable. I was finding cable kinks using those cable clipped Scotty releases. My fault, because I didn’t shut the downrigger off in time, but that will happen a lot with me. Wow, little off topic, but slightly related. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
