Pros: Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Easy To Install, Attractive Design
Best Uses: Small Boats, Personal Watercraft, Large Boats, Pontoon Boats
Comments: I am from Maine and have been fishing for many years. I had 2 of the Roemer releases, but I sold my last boat and let them go with it. Good for the guy who bought the boat, but bad for me. I have been looking for many years to find this product, as I had forgotten the name of the product. I have tried many releases in the past. but have not been satified with them. I like the way the Roemer releases, and the way you can change the distance from the ball with the Roemer. This will be the last time I let them get away from me.

Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Best Uses: With any downrigger
Comments: We used these things years ago with a lot of success. Bought some to use with some new Big Johns, getting back into fishing on Lake Ontario. Easy to use when stacking, but they do take some practice when adjusting trigger tension. I'm not a big fan of using rubberbands.
