    I use 20lb rigger balls, allows you to get deep without too much scope.

    What downriggers are you running? Our Cannon's seem to really struggle with 15lbs and really struggles if they get loaded with kelp.

    I use 15 lbs, seems to be the perfect size. I havent tried heavier, but I have tried lighter, I have some 10 lb ones that I dont care for much. Also I use the real sleek ones that look like if you took two dinner plates and put them together, or two frisbees. Not the ones that look basically like a ball. The sleeker you go, the less drag you'll have and the easier time getting down and being at an accurate depth.

    Scotty 1106b. Never had an issue. I despise the 10's as you have far too much scope to fish the deep stuff. Don't care for the pancake style just from a storage standpoint.

    I have had really bad luck fishing deep, 100ft, with the pancake weights. I have had them tangle up when they shear back and forth when. I figure it happens when I turn hard or with side current or both. Tangling up ur weights is no fun. Happened twice and i stopped using them.
