Default Lightest Outriggers ?

Would like to add outriggers to my Gause - with weight being a concern - who makes the lightest outrigger base and retracting poles ?

Taco grand slam bases are the simplest and lightest. Carbon Fiber poles willbe the lightest poles. BTW, I have a pair of CF poles for sale. They are used but in very good condition. They are sectional and screw apart (not retracting poles). PM if you have questions.

Thanks.... Think retracting would work better for my application......

We do a lot of casting when in the back country and would have to take them off every other trip ....


Thanks

Bly Riggers would be a good bet for you. In fact you could probably use the kingfish ones if you wanted.

Default My riggers are the lightest and stiffest retracting outrigger period.

4 LBs for each outrigger. No ones outrigger retracts as easy. They are very stiff. I believe the stiffest.

Triplenet. There should be a set to check out at the Lauderdale show if you want. I believe that if you go to the L&M lure and connelly fishing rod booth. You could get your hands on one. Also one of the Bluewaters will have a set on at the show. I will be down there my self on thursday and friday of the show and staying at the embassy suites on 17th street with plenty of outriggers in the back of my truck.

I have Taco bases. They are not light. I would say they are one of the heavier bases I've seen. They appear to be well made but I'm sure you can find lighter bases.

I have the Bly's. Not on my boat yet as it has not been delivered. I have the twenties. They retract to under 6' and both weigh 6 pounds unrigged. They appear to be very well constructed.

Will Bryan have them at the WPB show? The white/silver ones look great!
