Black's downrigger release clip
Pros: Easy and quick to adjust, Works great every time, Functional
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Salt Water
Comments: Black's release are probably the best on the market. I have tried quite a few and these work under most types of trolling with different rigs and lines.
Well made- Easy to use
Comments: If your tired of using pinch pads.. these are very well made, if you want to use this product as a stacker, it beats out Chamberlain.. here's why.. to stack this product, you clip the wire and remove, thread your DR line/wire (this is where using braid is a plus) through, it will slide nicely, simply use a split shot and crimp on the DR line to keep it at desired depth. The directions say to use toothpicks, I'm gonna use a small split shot.. The Black product also wont accidentally come lose from the DR line. The Chamberlain could.. there goes $20 release down the bottom of the lake.. The Black product wins hands down.. I honestly cant understand why Chamberlain does not put a safety clip on it's product to secure it to the DR line,, just in case it slips off.. Nice work Black Marine..

 Used on recent charter
Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Durable
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: Went on a recent Lake Ontario charter and the captain had nothing bad to say about them so I bought a pair to use with my new downriggers. I do a lot of fishing on Onieda lake for Walleyes and I'm hoping to get these tuned up right for that application. I been told to buy a trigger scale to help set-up the release for consistent trip weights.

 great repease clip
Pros: Easy To Maintain, Easy To Use, Durable, Functional
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: I have other clips but none release as easily as this. Wanted a clip with light release ability for downrigging pan fish. All others I tried would not release on small fish. This works great with a 10 foot UL rod. Loads of fun.
