Gear Review: PBZ Fishing Cable Minders

WHAT IS IT?

PBZ Fishing Cable Minders

WHAT SETS IT APART?

Zip ties and electrical tape fall short in protecting expensive forward-facing sonar cables. This professional cable management system eliminates that problem and more. A clip and cable lock system allows the cable to remain free in the housing, so it can move when depth adjustments are needed to the trolling motor. Heavy-duty clips protect the cable from impact damage, while secured in place for cleaner rigging and organization. All parts are precision-designed and made specifically for the trolling motor for perfect fit. Available for the Garmin Force, Lowrance Ghost and Minn Kota Ultrex.

HOW DO I USE IT?

Installation only takes a few minutes. Adjustments to the parts are unnecessary because each component is made to fit the trolling motor. For example, a Garmin Force single-cable install goes like this. Cable Shaft Clips secure the live cable to the trolling motor shaft, where the cable inserts into the Cable Lock, Bracket Clips and into the Cable Clips with the factory cables. (A tie is inserted into the clips on the Ghost install to prevent movement while not touching any cable.)

ANGLER’S INSIGHT:

Tim Sykes, the inventor, put the components through relentless, rigorous testing, fine tuning as he went to get the most durable parts with a precision fit for each brand of trolling motor. He didn’t just stop with the Shaft Clips. The complete system includes heavy-duty parts that attach to the trolling motor and the cables. You get a complete, professionally designed and tested cable management system to protect your investment. The takeaway is peace of mind in a super strong solution that looks like it came straight from the factory.
