The weight and water resistance of multiple dredges has become too much for fibreglass rods to handle. The flexing of the rod from these heavy weights causes a jerking motion on the dredges, giving them an unnatural action in the water. The DREDGE MASTER™ 400 was created to eliminate this problem.
Manufactured from aircraft aluminium for strength and lightness, it is then anodized black and gold for protection and lasting beauty, making the DREDGE MASTER™ 400 a work of art.
The DREDGE MASTER™ 400 features a solid aluminium shaft to handle the extraordinary amounts of weight and features a swivel roller tip with a 2 ½" roller that spins effortlessly on two stainless steel bearings. The swivel head has a large stainless steel bearing for rotation and a thrust bearing with 1,910 lbs. of load capacity for silky smooth operation. Additionally, the roller is machined for 400 lb. monofilament line which is being used to pull these dredges.
Because of the strength of this product, dredges and other heavy lures may also be pulled to the side rather than directly off the transom, giving the lures a wider spread.
The DREDGE MASTER™ 400 is available in two sizes. The DM-4 is designed to fit into a 80 lb. class curved rod butt while the DM-6 is designed to fit into a 130 lb. class curved rod butt. Both are available with or without a curved butt.
The DREDGE MASTER™ 400 is manufactured entirely in the company's North Carolina factory, and comes with a one-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship.
