The Dipsy Diver is the standard for the directional diving planer. The special round shape and resulting multi-directional feature set the Dipsy Diver apart from other divers and planers. This feature is made possible by the molded-in base plate weight that can be rotated in degrees. A shift right or left, as indicated on the base plate arrow, will cause the Dipsy to track to port or starboard.
These are the Size 3/0 (or "030") size Dipsy, which is 2 1/4"" in diameter. It can dive to 20 feet.
Please note that the Size 3/0 (Mini) Dipsy Divers do not trip. The images below show a trip mechanism, but are for color examples only.
