I think you mean feet not yards, no one is fishing kites 250 yards from the boat.

I would spend my money first on some nice hi speed lever drag reels and good stand up rods before the electric kite reel, but thats just me. Launching the kites is generally easier on a manual set up, and it definetly takes some experience with different wind conditions and kites. I would not go electramate or krystal before getting the hang of it.
