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.

Great Product ,would buy again
Very easy to use and incredibly effective, The biggest plus is how delicate they are to the deck of your boat VS the ball weights.

Better then the ball
I like these much better than the ball. Easily deploys and moves through the water. First drop lead to a 30lb barracuda hookup and catch. The bright color also helps to ensure proper depth when in clear waters.
ProsKeeps a good angle in the water across various speeds.

You need depth for BFT´s ?!
Use this Zwing downrigger for your deep lures - 30-50 feet - and with a Yozuri you will catch a 200lbs + BFT!
ProsBetter than any other normal weights - it works!

Zwing Downrigger 350 Yellow
Work great, does what a heavier ball does without the heavy pull on the downrigger at deeper depths. Bending fins to make it travel out from boat is nice feature and works well. Overall best product upgrade for downrigger fishing I have run into.
ProsBeing able to adjust wings for close or away from boat

Zwing Downrigger
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.

Hi, i have just ordered two yellow zwing 350's. I am curently fishing two yo-zuri k13 boards which is bringing up pollock from 20meters. However, this time of year the pollock are going deeper. Will the zwing 350 dive to 40 - 60meters or what is its maximum working depth. Thanks in advance.!

The Zwing operates on the principle of hydrodynamic depression, rather than just weight. As trolling speeds increase, the Zwing’s hydrodynamic shape increases downward force easily reaching your desired depth. Downward force overcomes drag allowing for constant depth to be maintained at various trolling speeds. So essentially the faster you go the deeper the zwing will dive.

I troll dead rigged bait at about 75 feet with a downrigger and 15LB Pancake weight at 6knots. Will this be able to get this deep at that speed?
1 Answers
The Zwing is used in place of the weight. Using them in tandem will not give positive results.

WHEN THIS PLANES IT'S EQUVILANT TO HOW MUCH LEAD WEIGHT. 6 LBS OR 20 LBS
1 Answers
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.
