JMO, but they should let us trade-in the older models that don’t or rarely swim straight. These things are expensive.

My inquiry regarding warranty was answered, directing me to contact [email protected] describing issues. Kicker was photos and proof of purchase. Don’t know about you guys, but I don’t have proof of purchase of much of anything. And what about the one given to me as swag on my last trip.

Anyway, maybe somebody who has had these problems should try the email approach, see what happens.

Fortunately I fish Cabo once or twice a year. I have found that DTX's that do not swim behind a LR boat typically do well behind cruiser.
Makes sense. Less turbulence. That's the way they were tested in the Nomad video.

In my dreams!
If you're tying straight to your mono topshot and it's still having trouble, you've got to let it get further out and away from the turbulence. As usual it isn't rocket science.

For years I’ve been using the Williamson speedpro 180 to good success on bluefin, yellowfin, yellowtail and wahoo. Last trip even caught a chopa!!
I rig it with 181# single strand and change out the hooks to 8/0-9/0 J’s
They track great, owned my troll team last trip and at fifteen bucks each I only have to pretend to cry when I loose one to a shark

From the picture, it looks like they still have the same LAME barbless inlines.
For almost double the price, you would think they would have provided a bit more of a barb....
I know a Longrange Captian called them about the barbless hooks and they hung up on him

Man this is going to sound like a really dumb question, but why don't lure makers orient the connection point on the lure so that normal hooks can be used rather than inline hooks? Or could 2 rings be used to re-orient the attachment point for normal hooks?
I use two rings
