Subtroll question

Recommended Posts

I am hooking up the coated cable to my rigger spool and need advice as I don't have instructions. How do I terminate the wire to the spool of the rigger itself?

Forgot to mention I have older electric cannon mag 10s that auto stop as the cable exits the water... Thanks in advance

You need to strip of the coating so the wire part of cable touches the metal shaft that goes though the center of spool. Poke the cable though hole in the side of spool and crimp. I go three wraps around spool with bare cable and wrap with electrical tape so the cable stays in contact with the shaft. Your short stop won't work if you don't touch bar cabe to shaft.

Agree with wrongrod.. Only thing i would add is to make sure set scew protruds slightly above base of spool for good contact. I have seen some that are recessed in the spool.

"Stripping" the coating back a couple feet may be tough. I always just burn it off with a lighter, then shine up the wire core with some sandpaper or emery cloth.
