What size planers are you guy's pulling with your planer rods? I have an 80w on an 80lb bent butt and 200lb braid. Was thinking size 12.

I presume that you mean an inline planer combo, I use an 8. Your speed is an important variable here too.

Yes, that's what I mean.

Your better off running the planer inline and doing away with the planer rod. The size of the planer is determined by the depth you wish to fish. The salty chart is a good place ot start.

Dont order a planer direct from old salty. They took money out of my account and never sent my planer using their website. They only have a email for contact which they dont respond to either. Sucks

I won't. I've bought a couple off of ebay before. No problems.

Sort of same thing I was asking. I think I'm going to try size 12 and maybe a 16 nothing larger. I've pulled an 8 on a Penn 9/0 before no problem so I know I can use the ones I've already got rigged.

I was wondering. I have used dual planners for years and never heard of the bridle rig. Just not popular here in Florida for the charter fleet. But now thinking of trying something different during spring dolphin season...

I have ran a planer off the cleat before with curtain rings and rubberband method and off a downrigger which actually worked pretty good as far as retrieval. Just trying the bridle method as I don't have downriggers on my current boat.

I have a pinnacle x-short bent butt canyon sweeper only 4"6 overall, with a Shimano 50LRSA and I pull a 16 with no problem as along as we don't go over 8.5 knots. And i pull a 12 old salty with no problem at 8.5 never gone faster then that thus far. Hope this helps

I pull a 16 but I use a trx50 with a anglers envy sniper rod! Could pull more with the reel I guess! A lot of people use a tiagra 80 with a 16 and it creeps a little with a half full spool

I like the 12 and the 16, and yes, you must have an Old Salty Planer (not a seastriker or other brand), because when you put it in free spool, it will release pressure and release to come up to the top allowing you to reel it in without the full pressure of the engaged planer.

#12 is a good choice.

We use #12 and #16 Old Saltys on our planer rods. Never a issue getting them to trip unless the stream is really cranking at +4knts. If that is the case we just flip the boat around to trip them. Watch your fingers!!
