blow back difference

Recommended Posts

is there a difference in blow back of the rigger balls between a 10 lb. tru- track style ball and a 10 lb. pancake style ball?

Yes the pancake have a "little" less blow back but the currents can play hell on the pancakes, and you can get some interesting tangles. I tried them when i got my new boat 8 years ago, they sat in the garage for 7 1/2 yrs and sold them on craigs list a few weeks ago. i hated them with a passion. My dad always used round balls or finned balls. i went with sharks a much better design and also take a look at the atomic torpedos they look even nicer. they are 13 lb where my sharks are 10 lb. you can get two of the atomic for around 80 bucks plus shipping. i've been eyeing them but the wife says i spent enough on tackle for this year.
