We got out on the water for a day of fishing in Riviera Beach Florida with Captain Chip Sheehan and Ronstan’s Ben Moon. Not only did we reel in some great catches, we learned all about how Ronstan blocks – which are primarily used aboard sailboats – can be used to enhance an angler’s time out on the water.
These pulleys are small yet incredibly strong, incredibly light, and they require very little maintenance. They can withstand a breaking load of up to 1,320 lbs. and feature a uniquely designed sheave which is recessed into the cheek, minimizing any chance of your mono jumping or getting caught.
- Ronstan Series 20 Breaking Load: 1,210 lbs.
- Ronstan Series 30 Breaking Load: 1,320 lbs.
Ronstan blocks can be used for many applications, from teasers to dredges to block and tackle. “There’s Ronstan on pretty much every boat that’s fishing,” says Captain Chip. Is Ronstan on your boat?
