Snubbers are a cushioning device that goes from the
lure to your chosen brand of diver. Reason? ...to provide some
added give to release some of the stress of a diver tension that can
jerk hooks free from your fish.
Snubbers are extremely important with 7 strand stainless steel line
that have no stretch. Low stretch thin super line Spectra
lines benefit from snubbers too. Monofilament line divers will
hold more fish with snubbers too. But not as dramatically and
wire and braid divers.
The sweet spot on snubs to perform is in the 4 to 8, maybe 10 pounds
of pull. Our Super Snubbers outperform every snubber on the
market today in the above pull weights with 12 inches of elasticity
in that zone. 2013 Super Snubbers will extend from 12" to
about 36" when dead lifting 50 pounds of weight.
Construction materials we use are USA made shock cord with machine
installed aluminum crimping sleeves to guarantee the finest quality.
Pound test of our hardware is major overkill being 225 pound test
made in the USA Roscoe coast-locks and swivel.
Wire Diver & Super Braid
Once upon a time there were no diver rods, no
super lines, no big rings (to add depth) for divers, or mag divers.
The once upon a time part goes back to the mid 1980s. 10'
diver rods came out around 1986, or so ...as diver fishing, became a
daily staple in Great Lakes fishing.
Divers took a lot of fish back then, but when the
thermocline went deep there was no way to get your divers to depth
the deep fish were holding.
This thin 7 strand wire once a staple
to the early 1930s and 1940s sport trolling for Lk. MI Lake Trout
was available, but not used as Dipsy Diver line until 1989.
Keeping in mind, there was no super braid Spectra lines back in the
later 1980s. Spectra fiber lines debuted in about 1992.
Thin line is the key that provides the ability with wire and braid
divers to reach depths of 100' down and beyond. Directional
divers reach out to the side for your boat to cut a wider trolling
path that gets to more fish. In turn, presenting your offering
to a larger fish audience.
