Headlock - running left or right post gets turned

Recommended Posts

So I have noticed more often than not the split ring and post on my headlock will turn to one side or the other. This causes the bait to run off to the left or right at approximately a 45 degree angle. Almost on its

left or right side. The bait should run straight down and jump left or right for a few wobbles return to center then jump left or right again. Like a thin fin would for those of you you fished with them. I'll try and attach photos. I have only used the post furthest from the nose of the bait so far. Any thoughts on how to avoid this??? full-758-47171-image.jpg

What speed are trolling at? I would try to speed up to 4.5 mph for awhile? If the bait is brand new the fit of the rivet should loosen up with use.

I have heard that the 10 inch headlock and the supernatural will walk at slower speeds than the standard headlock.

If you still have issues contact Duff directly.

Good Luck
