The Science of sub-surface fishing moves closer to perfection
with the introduction of the patented Z-WING downrigger
system. Operating on the principle of hydrodynamic
depression rather than just weight, the Z-WING overcomes the
shortcomings of the conventional downrigger systems.
REPLACE THE HEAVY LEAD BALL WITH A
THE LIGHTWEIGHT ALTERNATIVE TO
LEAD BALL DOWNRIGGERS
Having the ability to troll lures and baits over a wide range of
without complicated adjustments to the length of the tow cable has been
the dream of downrigger anglers and captains for many years. Now the
Z-WING downrigger system has made this dream come true.
Over 6 years in the development, the Z-WING's state-of-art
significant downward force which overcomes drag, allowing a constant depth to be
maintained over a wide range of trolling speeds. Barry Moore, President of Nekton Corp.,
whose love of fishing and engineering talents, developed the concept of the Z-WING.
Barry's many years of experience developing large towing vehicles for underwater
research taught him a few things about maintaining depth and lateral location
with minimal drag.
The Z-WING is a lightweight, 13" x 7" piece of
polypropylene plastic. No more heavy lead balls rolling around the boat
or swinging off the end of downrigger booms which can cause damage to
both angler and boat alike.
The Z-WING has three positions
With the center hole being the most
efficient. Attaching the Z-WING 250
by the center hole will produce a
16 degree downward angle far
outperforming a 5 lb. lead ball.
The Z-WING will hold this angle
and lateral position at speeds
from 3 knots and up.
