    Scottys are great 'riggers. I really think it may behove you to investigate the Penns. Scotty electrics are awesome, and I'd hate to fish with anything less. But, Penns are the easiest for me to use. My experience with Scotty man.s; and mabey it was due to poor mounting. They would jump or bounce up and down when I slowed down the descent. there is a quick removal pin in the back that they pivot on, and the whole rigger wold flip up. I didn't like that at all. Penns never did that. I'm looking forward to hear what others say, because I do like Scotty's stuff so much.
