Whats everyone using for the latest and greatest Salmon down rigger rod reels?? I have been using Daiwa  Accudepth 57 line counters for the last 25 years and they are finally wearing out. I'm Looking to upgrade. 

Thanks for any info!!

I like Okuma Convector CV-45DS. Line counter is great, high speed retrieve is great, and the drag is great. Works for me.

I use Daiwa Saltist reels for my riggers.  Best drag on the market and high speed gear ratio.

You can't beat the old PENN 320 'S for the downriggers

X2 on Penns. They are workhorses

If you buy the Okuma's from Captain Chucks, you can get the premium drags installed for just $10.

What size tekotas are you guys using for downriggers? I have the 500's for my wire dipsy setups.

I run 600's on my wires and rigger rods for salmon, 500's on my Brown trout rods. Haven't fished the new ones yet, these are the old style.

Ok - I have a pair of the new 500s, very nice, but they are a bit smaller than my Okuma Coldwater 300 size - so I'd probably have to go with 600s

I put a couple hundred ft of 40 lb mono on the 600's and 1000 ft of 30 lb 7 strand fills the reel nice.Edit. Good luck.

Opps sorry. you were asking about the rigger reels.
