I give the Otter boards the nod, simple and we never had any trouble with them at all. Not sure if Fishlander makes a planer mast set up ?????? If they do I'm, sure it's similar to Big John's.
I was trying to figure out how to spend my Social Security check the other day,LOL. Now I wonder how the "Electric Planer Board Reels" are, I don't know anyone that has them and they seem a bit pricey, maybe too pricey for what they are ????? They might solve the free wheeling problem we have sometimne with the manual reels, I hate it when that happens.
No matter, I guess they would have to be really good to justify the cost and I'm sure you don't catch anymore fish with them. But I then I might have something Grey Ghost don't have (yet)
