downrigger weights

Recommended Posts

Ok I have a lund 1775 impact with my 2 riggers mounted on trax. I have been running a 8 lb ball as they suggest but the blowback is bad. My question has anyone run 10 lb weight with this kind of a setup. Have cannon manual riggers

We run 14lbers on tracks with Cannon electrics with no problems. Its a fiberglass boat but if the tracks are properly mounted I doubt you'd have any issues.

If the tracks are mounted well it shouldn't be a problem. Hardest part will be cranking the heavier weights up since you will probably put them deeper :)

I agree with the others, as long as you have the tracks mounted with some type of backing like a backing plate or fender washers you should be ok.

If you are using stainless wire line or coarse braid, you could switch to 150 or 170 lb braid. It makes a huge difference on blowback over stainless wire. I knew one chap who has used 170 lb braid for over 10 yrs without any grief.
