Walker Downrigger & Okuma Downrigging Reel A Lions Head July 2016 AAA



Why choose Walker Downriggers:

At the present time only 4 manufacturers in North America, actively produce 12v electric downriggers in any great quantity: Walker, Cannon, Big Jon and Scotty.

It is important for comparison purposes to understand how each manufacturers “system” actually functions…what benefits the users receive from these functions…and the costs associated with those functions.

To start with…Walker, Big Jon, and Cannon 12volt electric downriggers all incorporate a “GEAR” drive system, in all available models, making features and benefits easy to compare.

Scotty manufactures only a “belt driven” system, which “lacks” the ability to “perform” some important functions, currently available “only” in a gear drive system.

14 More Reasons to Choose a Walker Downrigger:

  • Walker has been a “leader” in downrigger technology for over 30 years.
  • Only the best components are used in our production process.
  • Premium 195lb. test stranded stainless downrigger cable that is 30% stronger than the nearest competitor.
  • Cast, anodized aluminum Swivel Bases…No plastic to crack.
  • Dual “Adjustable” rod holders are standard.
  • Adjustable 4′ booms that don’t flex so much, in rough water, that the cable breaks.
  • Best design…No downrigger in the world is easier to use or service!
  • Lowest profile gear drive electric downrigger available.
  • Full Salt-Water protection!

  • Walker was the “first” downrigger company to offer a limited lifetime warranty.
  • Walker was the “first” downrigger company to offer a positive ion system for attracting fish.
  • Walker is the ‘only” downrigger company to offer temperature at the ball…built right into the design of the downrigger. (Temp Sense)
