SKU: LD-2 Category:


In 1989, Polyform introduced the patented LD (low drag) Buoy to the commercial fishing industry. Hauling in a 700-lb crab pot in 30-ft seas is the most dangerous job in the world. That’s why we created a buoy designed for faster, safer pickups, easing strain on both crew and gear. Polyform’s LD Series is the best option for any application where a buoy is dragged or brought in and out of the water regularly. It is distinguished as the #1 buoy used in the commercial crabbing and fishing industries today, outselling all other dragged buoys combined.


  • Unique shape makes pot retrieval easier
  • LD reduces drag by as much as 80% compared to standard round buoys
  • Great choice for any offshore fishing application
  • Polyform’s vinyl valve system maintains buoy inflation
  • Even wall thickness for maximum strength and durability
  • Heavy-duty reinforced rope hold
  • Offered in seven brilliantly visible and fluorescent (F) colors
  • Excellent fore and aft rafting protection
