Ultraskiff R.B.C. [Rotational Stabilizers] Wind Tracking and Static Positioning Accessory
Price: $80 (+$21 Shipping)
This is our latest Patent Pending Invention and the next step in helping people Experience Ultimate Fishability in a small lightweight watercraft. These lightweight and durable instruments attach to the side rod holders and hang over side of the boat. Ambient drift is your watercraft's tendency to change its direction on its own. That is the reason we invented the Ultraskiff 360, so that if your watercraft began to drift or turn on its own, you could easily just shuffle your feet and stay aligned with your target. These light. easy to handle accessories when attached to the side rod holders help to stabilize the ambient drift of the watercraft. They have many benefits such as:
1. Helps the boat track at slow speeds in the wind.
2. Helps you achieve static positioning in the wind.
2. Improves hook set power when not anchored.
3. De-sensitizes the steering
4. Fully and easily retractable and mountable on the gunwales.
5. Break Down in half for easy storage.
6. Foam filled so they float if you accidentally drop one in the water.
7. Sleek polished black color.
Q: Will not anchoring all day wear your battery down?
A: Its surprising how little the amperage draw is when your using the motor at 60% thrust and below. I usually get over 4 - 8 hours of fishing in on a single battery using them depending on the wind speed.
Q: Are these necessary to fish from the boat?
A: The boat is fine this is just a cool improvement if you use artificials and want to fish in the wind without anchoring.
Q: Are these available for purchase?
A: Yes, First edition RBC seen in the pictures above are available for purchase.
Q: How much do they weigh?
A: 2 Lbs each
Q: Will they work in really strong wind?
A: Work yes, but over 16 MPH is going to require over 60% of thrust to keep a static and will probably wear your battery down more then usual.
Q: Will they work in Saltwater?
A: It will help slow tracking in the wind but if the current is strong it can have an effect on there abilities to keep a static. So they are not at 100% effective when the current is moving in a different direction then the wind.
Q: Do they limit how shallow you can go?
A: No, they hang below the waterline less then a foot which is higher then your propeller, so there are no limitations here really.
Q: Do they hand up in Lily Pads?
A: In the really dense pads you may want to bring them up. Generally though in the normal density of pads I go into and through Pads just fine with these, you'll get the occasional floater that tags along for a ride.
A: Yes, one limitation is that they will not hold up against the pull of a 10'+ Deep Diver Crankbait. Using a lure with this much resistance will begin to through your course off. There are ways around it such as controlling the direction of the boat with the angle of your rod tip or retrieving in the direction of your course.
