The Cannon Digi-Troll 5 Electric Downrigger features keypad controls with an integrated LCD screen, the fastest retrieval rate on the market (250 feet per minute), and CannonLink compatibility allowing you to control up to six downriggers at once from your Humminbird fishfinder with the CannonLink Accessory (each sold separately). Integrated LCD keypad control allows push button control of lowering and raising the weight, controlling the depth and ability to program the exact amount of line you're using for increased accuracy.
The Digi-Troll is built tougher and smarter to make you a better angler. Cannon Edge Design features fewer moving parts, one-piece composite construction, a redesigned boom end, protected circuit boards, and easy access to the spool, switches, plugs and mounting knobs.
The Digi-Troll 5 incorporates Cannon's Positive Ion Control (PIC) technology. PIC is based on the fact that when the metal components of a boat - such as the motor and downrigger cable - contact the water, they create a steady but unpredictable electrical charge in the water. The strength and type of charge varies greatly depending on the different types of metals contacting the water and the mineral content or conductivity of the water. Since fish are attracted by a slight positive charge and repelled by a strong positive or a negative charge, generating and controlling the correct charge can be critical to the success of your fishing. Only Cannon electric downriggers send a slight constant positive charge down the cable to attract fish to your bait or lure.
These downriggers also include Cannon's "Short Stop." With a quick touch on the Auto-Up pad, and the weight rockets toward the surface. As the weight nears the top of the water, Soft-Stop automatically slows the retrieve rate to prevent stress on the cable. Then just before the weight breaks surface, Short-Stop automatically stops the rigger, leaving the weight safely below the surface to prevent free swinging.
