These unique teasers are designed
to run ahead of rigged baits or lures, below the surface. When rigged with the 3D Stickbaits, both the
4-arm and 6-arm versions create the appearance of a small bait ball followed by
a rigged stinger.
Another unique feature are the Free-Swinging Arms which give the teaser baits more action. This innovative feature also gives the arm the ability to reverse on a hook-up and run-off reducing the pull on the hook. When retrieving line they will revert back to normal. And, for storage they will lay flat.
Deep Runners trolled without a
weight are most effective with a trailing lipped plug, such as a Bomber, Rapala,
or a Mann’s Stretch. Or, added to a
weighted Deep Runner, this type of plug gets the whole presentation down even deeper.
If you’d prefer to use rigged natural
baits such as Ballyhoo for the stinger, a weighted Deep Runner is required. The more weight, the deeper it will run;
however it will also require heavier tackle.
Regardless of which stinger you choose
to use, it should be run between 6 and 8ft behind the Deep Runner.
Deep Runners are made with a marine
grade Stainless Steel hub, and Titanium arms. The center cable is 600lb test,
and is connected to a 250lb test Ball Bearing Snap Swivel. Both the 4-arm and
6-arm are 8” in diameter.
