    Are these the double top secret smuggled out photos of the new Traxstech/Vector riggers? Lots of similarities to my current Vectors -- but lots more bling.

    looks like its made heavy duty but a few things i noticed is that it looks like the motor would be hanging inside the boat aways if mounted as a side rigger and it looks like there's a lot of places for fishing line to get hooked under like the corners of the "magnum" plates (but they look like they may be recessed) and the corners on the stainless steel cover thats protecting the solenoid? - capacitor? on the painted motor. why not a brushless motor? are caps on the rod holders an option?

    appears to be a direct descendant of the old Vector just blinged out. any idea of weight capacity?

    Any addition information on the company? Appears to have just popped out of no where.

    The downriggers were designed/built by Bill Pertler. Bill designed the original Vector. We all know how well made Vectors were/are and these are even better. I have been told they will retail for $499 and I know that the Fishing Hole in St. Joe will carry them.

    appears to be everything that drove me to buy my Vectors in the first place, including the original pre-nature vision price point. I'm not too sure about the finish either though.

    personally I see a lot of things I would have done different. Such as mounted the motor on the opposite side, and that would have put the motor outside of the boat as opposed to sticking way inside. All those riveted on plates with names on them.. Etched into the piece themselves.Forsure went with a brushless motor.
