im thinking about buying a stainless trotline ramp to replace my cut in half PVC/plastic roller. since im commercial now, the pvc just isnt cutting it. my question is does the line slip off the ramp? it doesnt have guides, but i could install them easily. i just want to make sure its not just gonna be a PITA. thanks in advance, Mike

All of the ones I've seen have sides on them, just like a sliding board.

Mine is very similar to this one except it only adjusts vertically but still swings in and out of the boat when not needed. Added a piece of softer rubber instead of the mudflap that was on it. Came with a boat i bought a few years ago so i cant say i paid the retail price but it is very nice and will last a lifetime. Mine in the picture, no problems at all snoods with necks or clam bags.

I had one on the first dipper I owned. Worked great.

Over time the stainless will wear from the line rubbing the surface and sides. Easily fixed by a good welder.

The guys I know, who use them, call them a "Scoop". Because they look like an oldtime "grain scoop".
