I would buy this product again   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Handle, Easy To Store, Strong
Cons: Power switch too soft
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Trolling, Deep Water
Comments: Great product and easy to assemble and use. Product manual well written. Up/down switch is too sensitive, too easy to pass the center off position to the up position. Maybe a spring loaded (momentary up/down rocker) switch would be a better solution. Once you get used to the feel of the switch, controling it is easy.

Good size for not too big boat   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish, Easy To Store
Cons: Missing auto stop
Best Uses: Deep Water, Trolling
Comments: Two major additions that needs to be done: 1. The swivel sits are useful feature. You can easily remove the downriggers from the boat if you do not need them. However, you need to buy a downrigger plug and receptacle. 2. Provided line release clip is not a good and needs to be replaced.

Great for the avid deep water fisherman   (from prior model)
Comments: A perfect rigger for my 18 ft. Lund, the swivel is a must. Strong and silent with a professional look to it. I have three in use now and never a breakdown. I fish solo quite often so it is nice to just push a button to get the cable out of the water fast. Almost perfect, just needs an automatic shutoff.

Big Jon Sportsman Electric   (from prior model)
Pros: Quality Construction, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Attractive Design
Cons: Needs a way to hang ball
Best Uses: Large Boats, Small Boats
Comments: Great unit for the money. Bought the Sportsman models instead of the Tournament Electrics due to space concerns. Would like to see Big Jon develop a downrigger ball mount similiar to Cannon that hangs from the boom.

More than I could have hoped for   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Clean, Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Attractive Design
Cons: No Cons
Best Uses: 24 ft open bow boat, Needed smaller base
Comments: I wanted a strong, good looking, compact downrigger. The other brands were just to big and bulky. I spent months looking on the internet before I found these Big John downriggers at Fish USA. My dad is now thinking about converting his downriggers to some new Big John's.
