Whether fishing with a short lead for deep depths or fishing with a longer lead for surface fishing the Slide Diver is an incredible producer! A Dynamic Concept In Directional Trolling Sinkers! The Slide diver is your best weapon to bringing in record Salmon, Trout, Walleye, Stryper, Bluefish, Northern, and Muskie. A new line tension spring is now available which reduces line breakage substantially!
Like other disk style divers, the Slide Diver, The Adustable Trolling Diver, utilizes water pressure against the planing surface which forces the unit to dive when trolling. The adjustable weight shifts the diver from the center to the far right or far left trolling positions from the boat. Based on the setting and the amount of line released, the Slide Diver will descend to the selected angle or position.
The Slide Diver is unique in one major way--it is a true in-line diver. The line passes through the diver and is locked into place when diver is set. This design allows you to vary the lead length between the bait to the diver. Other divers are tied in a stationary position with a limited lead length from diver to bait. With these divers many people use an obtrusive rubber snubber to combat some of the tension issues that result.
