Drift control tournament series?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking about buying a tournament drift sock, made by Drift Control. I think it would be pretty helpful to have the option of opening and closing the hole at the end, thus letting you control the speed of the drift better. Anybody out there used one? Know anything about them?

Thanks

I have used the drift control and Cabelas Advanced Angler brand. I like the Cabelas one much better. The Cabelas sock seems to not get tangled up as much and open easier than the drift control one. The open close option is nice, but I baught 3 different size Cabelas ones for different wind speeds/applications. For me the drift control sock was always getting tangled up or turned inside out making it a pain to use in the high wind and big waves. Cabelas sock seems to be made of thicker material and holds its shape. I would check them out also.

Just my 2 cents,

Matt

I have an Advanced Angler (42" I believe" and a Drift control (54" I believe) and both seem to be pretty good but IMO the Drift control is a better unit. I usually use both at the same time and have never tangles either and if they are set out correctly you won't have issues with them opening.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
