Bought two releases, one works fine but the other false releases. Running them both with the same gear, speed and depth.

Bought two releases for our Great Lakes trip, one worked and one did not. It appeared to be off-kilter; the teeth did not meet. Tried to adjust with a pliers and didn't work. So spent the first day cranking the downrigger up way too often to reset it since it released from just the water pull on the line. Got a Scotty release at a local shop, and not only was it easier to clamp on line, it never failed.

I use the Cannon quick release clips. I've been out fishing with guides in the past and only click the release 3 times. This is a general rule for Stripers, however bigger fish may require a stronger setting.
