My first set of these riggers came used on a boat I bought back in the 80s. Parts are real scarce now .I have two more replacement riggers like this in the garage ready to go. These still haul a 12lb ball up from 160ft like nothing.The counters are not real accurate anymore I just dial them in on the depthfinder.  The tag on this one says 1985...  My math says 37 years old and still going strong.  Will definately outlast me.  I have one I have cannibalized for parts .It still ran but gears were worn out.. They dont make em like this anymore..

Something to be said for predictability too Stan.....things that function like they are supposed to and predictably are rare these days. I still am using my Cannon 10 A's from 1985 that I bought from Canandaigua Fishing Tackle and they have been out of business for many years:lol: I figure they will probably last as long as I am able to fish :lol:
