Walker™ Electric Downrigger with Auto Stop
Not what they used to be
I have had 2 walker down riggers for 3 years. They have worked well other than the magnet autostop design. I decided to add a 3rd. I bought this one and first time out it seized up. I sent it back and got another one. Same thing happened. I tore down my old and new downriggers and found the new downrigger has a seized up drive shaft.
I can't get a hold of the new owners of Walker downriggers which is Bert's Custom Tackle.
Starting to think I should switch over to Scottie's.

A good doenrigger
A really good downrigger,, it works great , everything but the line counter, gets out of wack, and very difficult to reset to zero, other than that it is GREAT, very light weight, autostop is fine, just a poor line counter. Great value for the money, you will pay at least twice as much from any other brand. Walkers are know to be very reliable.. I liked the first one so much I bought a second one..Poor line counter is why I don't give it 5 stars.

I recently purchased this downrigger and a I amm really impressed with its operation ,seeing that it is one of the cheaper downriggers I figured that it would be just OK but in reality it works very well and is simple to operate I am quite impressed .
