    The original Vectors would pull the azz out of a Rhino...I doubt that these models are any different.

    $500 for a quality electric rigger is frickin' sweet.

    With word the new Traxtech will hit the market at $950 I see these downriggers fitting a HUGE spot in the market. Lot's of Bill's original riggers are still on boats and still catching fish.

    If it's an anodized finish it should weather fine much like the Bert's rod holders and tracks.

    I find it odd you would reference Bert's. :). What spot are they filling???? Just curious.

    Has anybody given any specs on these yet or is it a big secret? Weight capacity? Speed? Amp draw? Somebody help me understand. I really want to.

    Floorboy, not filling any spots........ just wanted to point out another fishing products people are familiar with that has a smooth anodized finish.

    I've had many boats filled with Jeffs equipment, my current ride is full of it and I've rigged many others people's boats with it; intension was simply a finish comparision with no "angle" intendend.

    Just what a guy needs if he wants to pull a trolling bag down 250 ft so it wont get tangled in anything. :)

    No problem, It really was a better comparison than the finish of traxstech stuff.

    With the original Vectors you "build your own" downrigger by selecting boom length, number of rod holders (or none at all) swivel base, etc.

    I was hoping that the rigger would be reintroduced with this menu feature so that it could be married with existing rod holders.

    I would buy these riggers in a heart beat if they could be attached to my current Vector/Cannon double rod holder bases.
