Retriever Extension
StrikeBack Lure Retrievers are made up of 1.5 metre (5 feet) sections, joined with quick connect/disconnect marine grade 316 stainless steel connectors. These are male and female, self locating threaded fittings. Fittings are electropolished keeping retrievers looking good after years of use.

The Billabong and Top Ender retrievers come in standard 3 metre (10 foot) reach, with options to add 1.5 metre (5 foot) extensions to retrieve lures to any practical depth.

Benefits of Fibreglass
  • Light
  • Strong
  • Thin
  • Solid
  • Smooth glossy surface
  • Rigid with some flexibility
  • Increases effectiveness in extreme current
  • Flexibility allows easy stowage, and keep free valuable deck space
  • Does not kink, crush or fill up with water and shower your crew like telescopic aluminium poles
  • Transmits "feel" of line, lure and snag to the user, especially useful with difficult snags
Stand-Off Coils
Both retrievers are provided with additional small stainless steel stand-off coils which significantly increase the retrieval capacity of the retrievers in extreme current and depth. Stand-offs are only needed to retrieve lures in extreme conditions. The small coils are attached at the extension joins. By attaching taut line to the coils, the retriever is kept it a straighter line resulting in a stronger prodding action. Longlating construction, superior design
