The AFW Planer is a sophisticated and precisely balance piece of fishing gear. The lead weight acts as a keel and balance weight to keep the planer running true at controlled depths. When the planer is in the water in diving position, water pressure against the blade forces the planer down. When a fish strikes, the balance is changed. The planer then trips and produces a slight upward drag allowing you to fight your fish instead of the heavy lead sinker.
