You have stated that all these parts are exclusively designed for and intended for use only with your downrigger fishing gear.

The applicable subheading for the downrigger parts and accessories will be 9507.10.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for fishing rods, fish hooks and other line fishing tackleparts and accessories thereof: fishing rods and parts and accessories thereof, parts and accessories. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
