    The Magnum ones look really nice. All I've ever used is Cannon though.

    Costco has had Scotty Electric downriggers for just over 400$

    26yrs chartering, I went to the magnums this past winter and they are hands down the best rigger I've ever handled. I have the 140fpm motors, pull 15lb balls no problems. Bill who designed is is the origianl desinger of what is now the Traxtech.

    The 2500. It's his slower motor, but more than enough speed for me.

    Default Thanks

    Good to know, I am going to get the Ciscos because they boom out to six feet and can still pull up the larger balls.
    I am not price shopping since they are used far more and harder on a charter boat.
