Re: What is rubber bands to use for downrigging?
I'd go with the 19s. The 16s sometimes pop when I turn hard or if I have to bump the throttle up a bit if I'm fighting the wind. Switched to the 19s and solved the problem. Our catch per trip seems to be about the same, but without as many false alarms and time spent messing with the riggers.
I like things that go "bang"... I love things that go "BOOM!"
