Depth raider and Scotty rigger question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have the depth raider unit with the spring coil that goes on the black cable for speed and depth transmission . Wondering if there is a good way to set this up with Scotty riggers that have auto stop beads. Seems the beads would catch the spring and cause damage. Any ideas on how to rig this better? Maybe just use a rubber stop that ends at the top of the rigger end instead of the beads? Tha k's in advance.

They make a thimble to replace the Scotty thimble a lot more durable than spring contact Fish307 they should be able to help you out

Yup. The stop beads on the Scotty will tear that spring up. Get the sleeve.

Would a pice of copper flair at the ends work as well??

 

Deffently seems to be hard to finding the scotty 1211 part.

 

Thanks

Not sure if that would work.I think Scotty no longer makes the part .Try contacting Fish307 they are Scotty reps and may have some left.Good luck.

Absolutely.  Made one up a few years back. Wrap the antenna spring around the copper and shrink wrap it..

Wow pretty cool love the ingenuity makes me wonder if you could braze a post onto copper and use that without spring and attach cable to post

Great idea J.D.  Did you use a flaring tool on copper tubing?

I didn't have one... I worked the flair by hand.

Nice. What size tube did you use?

 1/2 or 3/4 inch diameter would be fine as long as the stop bead goes through.  I had a piece of 3/4 x 3 1/2" laying around so that's what I used

Here's my final product. I wrapped my copper with rubber splice tape and also attached to the boom with the same.

How did you mount the copper to the rail of the downrigger?

 

Thanks

The copper just floats on the cable, the antenna wire is secured to the rigger boom with wire ties.
