Other Benefits:
The Scotty Strongarm 30 has a number of exclusive features not found in other downriggers; features that make the Scotty easier to operate and that catch more fish. One big advantage is the tilt up boom which allows quick and easy connecting of weights and line releases. The Scotty boom can also be locked in the up position for docking or travel. The Strongarm 30 is also equipped with an exclusive slip clutch adjustment control. The clutch can be pre-set so that if you hang up on the bottom the brake will slip and you will not break anything. No other downrigger has this feature. The design also 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 downrigger wire. Many species of fish are strongly attracted to this charge.

This down-rigger serves great for trolling in the bay. IT's easy to use and the manual crank is pretty easy to reel also. Great for getting my deep lines down with a cannon ball weight. Easy to install also.

As with most Scotty products, I found these very easy to use and set up. I highly recommend them for anyone getting into downrigging or just wanting to add another manual downrigger. Tackle Direct is a pleasure to do business with.
ProsStrong and easy to set up and use.
