The Patented Fish Fighter™ Downrigger Weight (US D866, 706 S) was designed for the angler who is looking for the greatest advantage that they can gain when pursuing big fish. We designed our downrigger weights with our FFP Variable Weight System. It is very simple to adjust this weight from 1 to 10lbs. Being able to vary the weight is just like being able to choose which size fishing rod you use. When fishing in a big river with big currents — and if you’re trolling big baits — you may want to use a large downrigger weight. When you’re trolling for spring crappie in a calm lake with small lures, you may want to run a lightweight downrigger weight.
With our Patented FFP Variable Weight System®, the more weight plates that you remove, the thinner the weight gets, and the less blow-back you get on the downrigger cable. That’s the beauty of our FFP Variable Weight System — You get to choose the exact weight for your situation. Not only can you vary the weight, but you can also decide if you want to leave the stainless side plate on and give the downrigger weight some flash, or you can remove it and have no flash on the weight. We also designed (2) styles of rudders that are included with each downrigger weight. You can choose to run the straight rudder so the weight will track in line with your downrigger cable, or you can run our 10deg angled rudder. Our 10deg angled rudder will cause the weight to run out from the side of the boat. Being able to run your gear out from the boat is important when trolling shallow and you want to keep your gear out of the prop wash, so you don’t spook fish. Another big advantage to using our angled rudders is that your weight and cable will swing wide of the boat during tight turns. With (3) connection points on the rudder, you can choose exactly where you want your gear to run. Our rudder is the perfect place to add flashers directly to the weight. With Fish Fighter™ Downrigger Weights, you get to make all the choices. This is a true innovation and revolution in trolling technology. Not only does our downrigger weight have adjustable features, we also made it from steel so it would be much better for our environment than using traditional lead weights. You can also custom paint your plates to attract whatever fish you’re after!
