I have the cannon ez troll downriggers and they are not bad. Using a shuttle hawk helps when the fish are deep. Kinda sucks cranking up the ball every time somthing comes off the clip

My first boat had cannon manuals, they worked because it's all I had, eventually later I got scotty electrics with my 2nd boat, I love em.

The fathom master manuals my uncle had on his boat weren't bad though! I liked those much more than the cannons.

I definitely don't miss cranking up every time I came off the clip.

A friend of mine showed me a cool trick, mainly for stacking on a slow troll for kokanee or sockeye. send your downrigger ball

 down to where you want to fish with your first pole clipped in, on your second rod attach a shower ring, or a carabiner clip with a weight and a release attached to the clip, run that down your downrigger line till you hit your desired depth and your good. Gotta have a line counter reel though. Gets ya close. If you break off the ring just slides down your cable and stops on your downrigger ball. Pretty cool trick
