Scotty Power Grip Release ClipBy Hugh Partridge ,
Keep it simple." "Simple is better." I can't say how often I have heard these words, but one thing I can say is that it often holds true for almost everything. A great example is the new "Power Grip" release clip by Scotty.
When I first had a look at the new design of release clip by Scotty, I was amazed at its simplicity and lack of moving parts in comparison to other clips on the market today. The great thing about that, is the reliability. Fewer parts, so fewer things to go wrong, or wear out. Anyone who is serious about fishing, knows the value in that.
Besides the simple design, there are a number of other things that make this a great release clip. The shape of the clip fits better into your hands than any other clip I know. That is a real bonus when your leaned over the gunnel of your boat and preparing you lines, especially if there is any kind of wind. The large shape of the clip makes it easier to grasp and simpler to manage once in your hands. Simply squeeze the handles together and the jaws open making it easy to place your line.
The aerodynamic design of the release offers minimum drag in the water and won't catch weeds or debris.
The "Power Grip" has extra holding power ideal for trolling flashers, dodgers, large jigs or multiple bait setups. This new high teck release offers up to ten pounds of adjustable release tension. Like many other release clips, the "Power Grip" has an adjustable tension that varies according to the placement of your line within the pads. The further back you put your line in the pad, the heavier the tension.
The "Power Grip" comes in the following models:
- #1170 18 " leader with cannonball snap
- #1171 18" leader with self-locating snap
- #1172 30" leader with self-locating snap
- #1173 48" leader with self-locating snap
