Had to turn around to pick up one board last year, but honestly think we didn't actually get the line behind the pin in the back. Also most always run my dipsys off a drop loop with a small s-biner. Lure's about 50' back. Just unclip the dipsy when reeling in, and land the fish without it, really simple. I do want to try a wire dipsy this year though.
I really like the Sams Pro releases, especially for salmon. I always double wrap the back OR16 clip on my boards just so I don't have to worry about the board coming off. I had a 400ft length of copper and flasher/fly combo break off a few years back due to a big fish pulling the board under. Which is the reason I switched to the Sams Pro releases. No more fighting the fish and the board.

I've never tried the loop and s-biner dipsey setup though. Personally I run 2 of the OR-16 clips on my dipsey divers so I can remove them. I put a 50ft section of braid between the leader and my wire and can attach the dipsey where ever I want in that 50ft section. Some days long leads work better, some days shorter works better.

Snowking I use the Sams release with 20 lb big game mono for salmon fishing. I like it except it takes a little more time to redeploy. Getting the line wrapped around takes longer. If it is on the rough side sometimes the looped line comes off before you get it clicked in. For Walleye fishing when you are also catching allot of non target fish it is to much a pain. I use mono for walleye fishing with the 411 fishing orange clip in front or18 in back. Just loop twist the mono into the orange clip. I do not think that would work with braid. It is faster for me then sams for walleyes.

OR-16 OR-18 and had trouble with braided line slipping through the release. Not only did you fight the fish but you were always fighting the board.
With the Sam's snap the rod tip and the front releases and you just fighting the fish. Just make sure you have a OR-16 with the pin on the back.
Works GREAT!

This is exactly what I wanted to hear! I'll be ordering up two for my boards. Thanks!

You'll like them. Once you get the tension set to your liking they are consistent on how they release. There is a screw that sets the tension (similar to a dipsy).

Really liked them and plan to change a couple boards over to compare them to stock boards of the same size.
