Default Best place to get downrigger weights

Looking to pick up a couple of 12# pancakes or the like. Prefer the streamlined to help with blowback...

These things are crazy expensive for what they are...

You ain't kidding. Got mine off CL. I have 2 12# pancakes exactly as you describe. Makes me look awful careful at my wire and rigging every time I hook them on. I would be royally PISSED to lose one.

BTW . . . they're worth the $$$ in comparison. You can set the fins to "spread" better and keep them another 2-3 feet out from the boat. Makes it really nice and easy to run 4 'riggers on an 8'6" beam.


Hey . . . how's 'Roos doin?
