Riggers review
Written by Jimmy Bonello on 1st Dec 2021

I purchased one rigger in early summer. I loved the rigger so much I purchased 2 more in late summer. The quality and material used on these rigger can’t be beat. They operate so smoothly. I had to wait almost 3 months to receive my 2 new ones but they are definitely worth the wait. Now I have a winter project to work on and installing them on my boat!

Extremely high quality, high performance. Best Down riggers I have ever owned, Owned both Big Jon's and Cannons. THese are worth every penny The bring up a 20 lb quietly and quickly to ensure your catch does not get around the wires.

Great downrigger
Written by Jim on 13th Jun 2021

I have fished 3 or 4 times so far using my new rigger. And so far I absolutely love it. The quality of all the components are great. I love the fact that there are no plastic parts on it. I’m definitely ordering 2 more units this winter during the off season.

Top of the downriggers very high quality made in USA

I bought the magnum metalz downriggers after using them on my nephews boat. The quality is second to none. These riggers run so smooth everything runs true.I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking to buy new riggers. I have had walkers and Cannon digitroll 5 and I think the quality is so much better and made in USA

Downrigger review
Written by Todd Sivak on 6th Jan 2021

I was excited to replace my Cannon Digitroll downriggers. I had done my research. I was not prepared for how much better the Magnum Metalz downriggers would be. Imagine a surgeon upgrading his surgical equipment from plastic knives to stainless steel. That is what our experience as been. They literally feel like surgical equipment. Smooth, fast, powerful and consistent. The quick release bases make it simple to remove and convert from fishing to entertaining. So simple that I am adding extra QR bases to my smaller boat for easy setup for early season fishing. Oh and I saved a significant amount of money in the process ... Thanks, Todd Sivak

Competitive pricing for a quality downrigger
Written by Jon on 5th Mar 2018

I have fished the great lakes for many years and have owned most types of downriggers. These are the best yet. I'm not looking for a rigger with all the bells and whistles. I want a quality downrigger that is well made and dependable. My priorities were to get a simple downrigger that anybody can use with a motor that can haul a big ball and the cable capacity to reach the bottom easily in deeper water. This downrigger does all that at a great price. I have no regrets and would recommend them to anybody. Here are the positives as I see them... Simple durable and attractive design. Powerful motor. Great company and support! Large Cable capacity (ordered mine with 400' and room for more). Pulley design which does not allow for cable to spool off pulley when bouncing bottom. Comes with 3 rod holders which are high quality just like the downrigger. No Creep. Clutch system is so smooth it can act like the auto-stop. Comes with good terminator kit as well as Blacks style release. I'm hoping the replacement of the spring on counter with the band eliminates broken springs. Negatives - I have one very minor complaint that does not detract from an overall outstanding downrigger and one accessory item I wish Magnum Metalz offered... I love that the downrigger comes with the 3rd rod holder! But, I like to use the center holder angled real low almost parallel to boom. When resetting lines on a longer boom where you have to pick the boom up to reach the release the boom will hit the holder before locking. The downriggers look awesome and like most downriggers they have lots areas for spiders to crawl into. I wish they offered a protective cover to put on riggers when not in use. Thanks

Not just the best downrigger around, but best support and customer service!

Cannot say enough about Bill and his staff. Had Proos, Big Jon and Cannons. These downriggers are no comparison! Hands down the best downriggers I have ever owner. Besides the functionality the are also the best looking downrigger on the market! I had an issue twice (both were my mistakes) and was taken care of promptly and at no charge. This level of service is rarely seen these days.

Best Downriggers Around
Written by Bama Breeze Sportfishing on 18th Apr 2017

Shawn did a fantastic job recommending these riggers for our boat. They have no trouble pulling 40 pound weights off the bottom. After purchasing these elite riggers we will never use a different brand. They are worth every penny.
