Fish with more confidence and control than ever before!

The Chamberlain Stacker has the same patented two adjustment design. as the original release, with the added convenience of the ability to attach to your down rigger cable. It has an internal locking cam to hold it in place, and will automatically unlock from the cable when release contacts down rigger pulley.

False releases and small fish that are not detected are the two major problems with downrigger fishing. The Chamberlain release is designed to eliminate both these problems with the patented design of two adjustments.

First, the vertical adjustment (rod side) is unique in that it allows the fisherman to put extra downward pressure (loading the rod) against the release while fishing. This is critical because the instant a fish trips the release, the slack between the rod and the fish is removed more quickly. This gives the fisherman an almost instant hookup.

Second, the horizontal adjustment (fish side) is very sensitive and needs only a small adjustment each time to achieve a precise setting. Fisherman should start out on a light setting and adjust the release until the exact setting is reached for that particular lure. The Chamberlain release is so sensitive that when properly adjusted, it can take only ounces of extra drag (caused by small fish, debris or even a strike) to release the line.

Good luck!
