Poor Quality Sock worked well for the first three trips. This trip the dump cord came unsewed. No biggie!! But when I examined it closer at home the material is breaking in several spots and is almost broken in half. The sock is only three months old! Can't recomend it to anyone but it did work well while it lasted! LOL September 19, 2011
speed brake for your boat I've owned three of these Lindy drift socks, all in different sizes. I use them to slow the boat speed for trolling by deploying them from the bow ring of the boat and letting the sock run under the boat's hull. Works very well, better if you don't use any extra rope- a spring clip holds the sock right to the bow ring. I would have given this product a 5-star review however, I had a situation last year when a cuddy cruiser crossed my bow waaaay too close and kicked up a wake that almost came over the bow. The drift sock absorbed the shock of the wake, but the force pulled the sock's stitching loose and I had to re-stitch it. This was NOT a normal operating condition. May 27, 2010
Essential for drifting What a difference this made while drifting! Slows down your boat in all wind conditions and allows you to have your bait in the strike zone longer! I use the 36" model on a 14' & 16' aluminium boat and it makes quite a difference in mild to moderate wind. If you'll be fishing when the wind is howling, you'll need a larger sized version or use a second drift sock of the same diameter to get the same effect. July 6, 2012
Awesome sock! I have a 30ft Pontoon boat that I drift fish for catfish with. It takes two socks (I have bought the original series 60'' sock which is made from a lighter material. I would recommend this one over the original series, it seems to create more drag even though it is 6" smaller (utilizes a heavier material) Deploying both socks keep me at around 0.7 mph in 10-15 mph winds (My pontoon is covered and is a double decker so it catches a lot of wind) This more durable drift sock lets you really put on the breaks but if you want to be able to control your direction a little better pick up a second smaller sock such as the more expensive but lighter original series, so you can quickly change the heading of your boat while this fisherman series keeps you slow. I also love that this one comes with line to pull it in, the orignal series does not so you need 9-11ft of rope to make your own "pull-in" line. October 23, 2009

A: 
I have an 18' fiberglass runabout. At idle speed it runs right at 3.3 mph (taken by GPS).
With a 36" sock it slows the boat at idle to ~2.6 mph.
With a 48" sock it slows the boat at idle to 1.8-2.0 mph
With the 54" sock it slows the boat at idle to 1.3-1.6 mph.

This is all dependent on boat size, type, wind speed and direction, and all the other factors boaters have to contend with. The bigger the sock, the slower you go.
I hope this helps.

A: 
(From Lindy's own chart:)
moderate wind:
boat length:
<15' = anchor 25-30"
16-18' = anchor 36-42"
20+' = anchor 48-50"
light wind:
boat length:
<15' = anchor 18-24"
16-18' = anchor 25-30"
20+' = anchor 36-42"
heavy wind:
boat length:
<15' = anchor 36-42"
16-18' = anchor 48-50"
20+' = anchor 54-60"
