Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.
thanks
Steve

  • Outrigger clips

    Which ones are the best. I have the roller trollers on mine and when it gets rough you have to watch them because they get tangled. I'm thinking of changing them and putting on the rupp knockouts for my short rigger and maybe just plain zip clips for the longrigger since I just troll feathers and ballyhoo on the longs and spreaders on the shorts, any opinions.

    Rigger Clips

    In my opinion Blacks are the best. Simple and durable.

      Clips

      I use rubber bands - they will always release - you cant adjust the bait, but i have gotten used to it.

        if you are having problem with the roller trollers getting tangled you probably have them rigged with coastlocks attaching to the bar with holes in each end, cut the bar off, then the ring, all you will be left with is the clip with a hole in the plastic, run your line thru the hole and you will find it will be angled the proper way and no tangles whatsoever. this is a common problem.
        if you have a problem with the newer style with the plastic slide clips not adjusting tension, let me know and i will hook you up wityh my buddy at aftco to get you some correct replacements, they had a materials problem in manafacturing that made the tension adjustor not limber enough to release at a lighter pressure.

            Thanks for that info. I have the older style and they work good but flop around too much with that bar. I'll re rig them this week. Thanx again you saved me a few dollars.

                I had a batch of the new IMPROVED design and thought they were junk. Poor design. I sent them back for the old design and they work much better. Why do they always have to ruin a good thing.

                  split, read what happened to aftco when their plastic component manafacturer changed the compostion of their clips, they made them too stiff. the new clips work fine as long as you get the ones that have been made with the proper amount of strengthening product. once again, have faith as aftco is a top notch company. i live to kill fish and will let nothing stand in my way of it. aftco clips will always be a standard on the boat i fish.

                    I have no problem with Aftco. I just like the old style better. I don't have to worry weather the slide adjuster has moved each time I set it or try to remember where it should be. They will always be on my boat also.
