RDTKL puts foam in every squid. The added buoyancy allows the bars to track better on the troll at both faster and slower trolling speeds. If you look at our spread, you will see that we have at least three bars out all of the time. When hooked up on other lures we do not clear these bars from the pattern, we just leave them out. The fish hooked will be fought underneath these bars and should not get tangled. This procedure saves valuable time getting on with the fight and not worrying about clearing these bars. Remember its all about maximizing every opportunity. Even at a dead stop our bars will get hit when left out as you are fighting other fish. Even if they don't, once you boat whatever you hooked you will already have these bars out in the pattern as you get back up on the troll. Just put the boat back in gear and get back on the school.
There are two sizes of foam; size 1 is 3 inches long and has a 5/8" diameter to fit perfectly in our 7.5" shell squid. Size 2 is 1/2 inch diameter and 2.5 inches long and fit in smaller squid. The larger floats come 2 in a pack and the smaller ones are 4 to a pack. If you are using skirts, you can cut each foam into 3rds and they are perfect. There is a rigging hole through the foam.
