Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lakes After trying several other brands of planer boards , including custom made , we settled on the Otter's for a lot of reasons. Simply because they WORK great under most all conditions. On the Great Lakes in fresh water for salmon , brown trout and walleyes they are the cats meow ! ! August 22, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless on the Chesapeake This board starts out behind the boat with only 75ft of line out, despite using an 8ft mast. Add one single line with a tandem on it (standard 9oz tandem) and these boards can't keep the line tight. It'll even spin from the pull of just one line on it. Forget about putting an umbrella on it, it can't handle it. An email to the company using their contact info on their site about how to improve it went unreturned. Useless in typical Chesapeake Bay trolling conditions, now I know why I've never seen anyone use these. April 25, 2011
