When teasing a hot fish, you impart a good amount of friction on the standard stainless-steel ring or glass eye that is attached to the teaser halyard and on the bridge-teaser main line that travels through it. This slows the teaser reel down and damages teaser line. I've found that using a simple ball-bearing roller pulley on bridge-teaser halyards and attaching it to the outrigger eliminates almost all the friction at the points of contact, providing a smoother, faster retrieve. The pulleys also help you deploy your teasers quickly without worrying about any sticking that could cause a backlash on your teaser reel.
