I pull the stripteaser 6 arrm with two cigar weights about 32 oz total. I put a really good quality swivel on it and use atleast 200lbs + test. I do not want to see that baby go bye bye.. This thing works well. At the end of the day, I like to stop the boat and straighten out my lines, leaders and so orth and let the stripteaser stay down. It will look like a school in the current and might give that last shot at a dolphin on spin tackle.

I pull mine from a downrigger with cable. Have pulled it from an outrigger with 200+ braid.

I use 300-400 lb mono just for a little bit more abrasion resistance and piece of mind. I pull them from short bent butts but have pulled them off cleats in the past and the heaver mono makes it easier to pull them in by hand.
