The Scotty Depthmaster has more small boat fish catching features than any downrigger in its class. Its low profile, one hand operation, automatic brake, built in slip clutch and lifetime warranty are unmatched in the industry.
|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.

Wish I Had Purchased Sooner!!!!
To think the original down rigger systems were coffee cans filled with rocks or anything heavy. SCOTTY makes life easy and safe for boaters of all experience level. They have what you need. My SCOTTY is smooth, hassle free, forgiving, and well-built. And I haven't said THAT about anything for years. Buy one, if you want to play games with the big boys on the bottom, middle, or where-ever.

Good quality small downrigger at a great price. I have these installed on my 24 ft boat ,for slow trawling live bait for king fish. Holds a 10lbs ball with no problem. I added swivel mounts for more flexibility.
ProsGood value for my application
Consif you are going to be fishing with a ball above 10 lbs then you should consider the larger strong arm version.
