What size weights do you guys run on your downriggers?

I use an 8 lb and my wife uses a 6 lb weight for the electric downriggers. When we use the boat with manual downriggers, my wife sometimes drops to a 4 lb weight. It is easy to compensate for any blowback. I am sure others use heavier weights but it is not necessary to buy new gear. Plenty of fishermen just topline or topline with inline banana weights, so deep fishing is not necessary all the time.

I use 8lb. pancake weights. The deepest I fish is 25ft. No reason to fish any deeper.
