Ratings & Reviews
The best of its type
by MikeH -
Never had a problem using these releases. The ability to precisely set the release for all types of gamefish is what keeps me supplied in them.
Well made- Easy to use
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..
Black's downrigger release clip
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.

So glad I found these, they work extremely well and have reduced the time getting lines back in the water after landing a fish by quite a bit, making getting back in the fish much quicker!
The Black's down rigger line release.

This has to be the best line release on the market. Very easy to adjust. You can test it before it ever gets wet. Adjust with a screw that's easy to turn but does not get out of adjustment. GREAT product. I give it a 6 out of 5 rating.

Sturdy, Easy to use, and most reasonable
by Bill -
Used in up/down works well for fish aroud 2 lb category. Use in paralell will release more easily for all sizes of fish. The adjustment is smooth to turn does an excellent job.
Used on recent charter
by The Beaver -
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.

These are great releases. I've switched from pinch pads for good.

I use it on my downrigger during king mackerel tournaments. It never let me down!
I'd buy and use these releases again.

I use the Black's Downrigger releases on my downriggers for salmon and trout. They're made of stainles steel and won't corrode.
Great Clip!! Would recommend.

I bought a couple of other clips at Gander Mtn and they broke the first time I used them. These are a little more money, but worth it. They are very durable and easy to use!

Simply the best downrigger release. Crank them down for salmon loosen them for small light hitting walleye. Use rubber bands with them if you want a strike indicator or for dragging fish.
