Question about Auto Stop Beads for Scotty Depth Power


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. I'm new here, I apologize if I've asked this question in the wrong forum. I have just purchased two used Scotty downriggers. I'm wondering about the Auto Stop Beads. Under what circumstances would you have more than one bead on your cable, and if you have one higher and lower does the higher one just wind up in the spool without damage while you are retreiving more cable?

 

Thanks.

It won't damage anything. I run 2 beads all the time a few inches apart. Just make sure you have the yellow for steel and the black if you have braid

In the past I've had the stop beads slip if something like weeds or plastic gets pulled into the front roller with the bead. Two beads back to back will hold better in that situation than one. Another reason to run multiple beads is to stop the weight below the surface of the water to prevent swinging on a rough lake and then raise it to line setting position when you are ready on the second stop.. Multiple beads will not cause any problems on the spool.
