    Re: Eco line weights by Trinidad Tackle

    It's nice to see another option for snap weights on the market. What is the MSRP on these and what kid of kit will they come in? I already have the Off shore tackle kit which is also lead free, but it was hard to get a hold of based on availability and price was steep. I know I have friends and family members that will be interested as long as they are priced reasonably. When and where can we get them? Brad

    If you have been reading Trinidad Tackle Facebook page, there have been more German Browns being caught using this system on Shasta Lake, Don Pedro, New Melones and Lake Siskiyou using the Eco In Line Weights and Optimizer lures. People that have never caught a Brown in their life are doing it now.

    Yes, the Split ring is so you can change out weights with very little problem. from the 1 oz to the 6 oz

    All one needs to remember is 1oz sinks 10' at 2.4 mph.

    The greatest thing is when you use the Eco off a Downrigger, making your presentation very stealth. Imagin a 10 lb ball coming at you, you're going to move and so will the fish. But with the Eco it's the size of a quarter

    Trinidad Tackle will have them available on 4/20/18 we are just waiting for the Plano boxes to arrive
    1 oz sinks 10' with how much line out?
    Mono or braid?
