Rated 4 out of 5 by tman56 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 .

I want to buy a downrigger for my husband to use in Lake Fontana. This is clear water, 100-500 ft deep with suspended fish at about 50-50 ft. He wants an elctric downrigger but I am not sure which is best. This is a surprise---or I would ask him! Thanks
i dont know that much about your husband. but walkers have been around for many years. and theres still alot of the old ones out there still working. if i was going to get walker riggers i would get the tournament model. it is alittle more money, but it is more rigger.
