The Zwing downrigger offers a great alternative to the traditional lead ball. Operating on the principle of hydrodynamic depression, rather than weight, the Zwing offers boat captains and anglers the ability to troll lures and baits over a range of speeds without complicated adjustments to the tow cord lengths. The design puts you in control of depth and lateral location. Unlike any other weighted planer the Zwing's unique design creates an underwater vibration similar to that of injured or schooling baitfish. The Zwing is made from, lightweight, virtually indestructible, polypropylene plastic and can be customized to track in any direction away from your boat.
Zwing Set-up
Connect your downrigger tow line to the center hole of the Zwing bracket this is your tow point. Connect your fishing line to the downrigger line. The smooth hydrodynamic design puts you in complete control of depth and lateral location of your line. Downward force overcomes drag allowing for constant depth to be maintained at various trolling speeds.

Compared to the Lead Ball
Operating on the principle of hydrodynamic depression, rather than just weight, the Zwing overcomes the shortcomings of the conventional lead ball. The lead ball rises with speed. The Zwing's hydrodynamic shape increases downward pressure with speed. 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.

Zwing is Easily Customized
The Zwing is made from, lightweight, virtually indestructible, polypropylene plastic. By applying a heat source (such as hot water) to the Zwing's back fin joints, a slight angle in the fins can be positioned and set. These offset fins will produce a horizontal angle in addition to the vertical downward angle. The Zwing will track away from the boat while maintaining desired depth. This feature is critical when fishing for spooky species like Salmon or Trout. Returning the fins to a straight position will enable the Zwing to regain normal tracking.

Zwing Performance
Besides depth, and tow position, the diameter of the tow cord can impact efficiency of the Zwing. Thicker diameter tow cords create more drag which must be overcome by downward force. Thinner diameter tow cords create much less tow cord drag and allow for more efficient performance and steeper angles of decent, expecially at slower speeds. Keep in mind, the Zwing does create downward pressure at fast speeds. Be sure your downrigger can support this pressure.

I bought one of these Zwing Downriggers last year to use instead of a heavy lead torpedo, They are Super Great! I would never again use anything else, In fact Im buying another one this summer to have as a backup just in case.

from SALINAS CA asked:

WHEN THIS PLANES IT'S EQUVILANT TO HOW MUCH LEAD WEIGHT. 6 LBS OR 20 LBS
Marty, the Z-wing digs rather than achieves depths based on its weight. This way it remains more vertical with less scope in the line as compared to a traditional down-rigger weight.
