A perfect set-up for all types of prey, the Tournament Cable Deep Runner presents a concentrated bait ball with the option of having the weight rigged inline, hidden within the bait ball. These small, 12in teasers are designed to run ahead of a rigged bait or lure, giving the appearance of a small school of bait just ahead of a straggler. They come rigged with 24oz, 32oz, 48oz or 64oz weights (or unrigged if you’d prefer to run a Stretch-type plug with it), and each Deep Runner has free-swinging arms for a more natural bait action in the water.
Tournament Cable Deep Runners are made with a precision machined Stainless Hub and a 700lb Aussie-style swivel. 600lb stainless cable is connected at the swivel on one end, with a 320lb Ball Bearing Snap Swivel crimped to the other end. The arms are spring stainless, and each swivel sleeve connection has a protective cap. Plus… the entire setup lays flat for easy storage.
The Virginia boys swear by these Deep Runners rigged with our 3D Stickbaits, and an Ilander/Ballyhoo combo run just behind them. Tournament Cable Deep Runners should be trolled from a 50lb outfit for best results, and leaders attached to the snap swivel should be kept to about 36in.
