First of all these units should come standard on all Big Jon electrics. What is the "L" on the blue wire supposed to mean" Live" perhaps? What's the matter with "P" on he blue and "N" on the brown wire representing positive and negative ? I have three of these units and two of them did not come with instructions. Unsoldering two wires on brand new switches and resoldering to the new units and discarding the perfectly good stock units is lunacy but that's the way Big Jon does it. Once the new unit is installed it works flawlessly Took one star off just because of the needless time consumed on something that should be done right in the factory and the sensitive switch which takes some getting used to which has been an issue with many owners.
Pros: Nice addition
Cons: Should be standard, Touchy switch
Best Uses: Deep Water

Although I haven't had a chance to use them yet, I have read good reviews about them.  I think that they are almost a must have.  Without them, sometimes I get distracted and forget to stop the motor.  As most of you know, this is not good,  Usually results in loosing a ball and all or its hookup hardware.  Pretty easy to install.  I look forward to fishing with them this year.

Pros: Easy to Install
Cons: A bit pricey
Best Uses: none

When I tried it at first, I thought it wasn't working because the stopper actually goes past the microswitch a few inches before it stops. But after trying it a few times, I have full confidence that when I hit the up button it will stop when it reaches the stopper. Also,when I wired it to my battery, I put the brown wire which was marked "L" on the positive, and the blue wire marked "N" on the negative. When I tried it, it smoked for a second. After correcting the polarity, it still worked properly, I should have paid closer attention to the instructions. When I catch a laker 170' deep and hit the up button, by the time I net the fish my cannonball is ready to drop again. Also you can use other downrigger lines than just stainless type, other brands require special lines or they won't work.
Pros: Easy To Handle
Cons: none
