|Depthmaster 1050 features:
||Each Depthmaster 1050 includes:|
The Scotty Depthmaster has a number of exclusive features not found in other downriggers; features that make the Scotty easier to operate and that catch more fish. The automatic brake makes the downrigger easy to use plus adds an important safety feature. Anytime you release the handle the downrigger automatically stops. No other downrigger has this feature. The Depthmaster 23" boom is carefully engineered so you can conveniently reach the cable from a sitting position in the boat. The low profile horizontal spool can be operated with either hand so you can work your fishing rod with the other hand. The Depthmaster is also equipped with an exclusive built in slip clutch that will slip if you hang up on the bottom so you will not break anything. The Scotty design gives you the advantages of natural electrolysis (positive ion control) on your downrigger wire. The downrigger is engineered so that you will have a slight positive charge on your cable. Many species of fish are strongly attracted to this charge.
