LD (Low Drag) means faster, safer pickups - and less strain on both crew and gear
Patented rib design and its unique shape allows the buoy to skip along the surface of the water rather than digging in as the standard round buoys do
Testing has proven that the LD series created, at most, only 20% of the drag at retrieval speeds of 3 to 6 knots

Great product. Stowes very well when space is limited. Appears durable. Looking forward to many years of use.

Question: On the Polyform LD-4 bullet-shaped buoy, the specs say its buoyancy rating is 121 lbs. Does that mean it weighs 121 lbs when filled with water?
I'm wanting to use it as a punching bag, and I need to know the weight when filled all the way with water (I'm assuming that you can do that with it). Thanks! Patrick S.
Answer: The LD-4 Polyform 121lbs of Buoyancy is how much weight the buoy can support without sinking when filled with air. The internal volume capacity is about 8 gals. Water weights about 8lbs a gallon so. That volume times 8lbs a gallon for water to fill the buoy and it will weigh about 67 lbs overall when filled with water.
We have not tried filling a Polyform or any other buoy with water but it seems people do. The warranty does not cover this use. Brian K.
