Bummer about the bad luck with the electramates. I've owned a couple, all second hand, 2 are going on ~15 years of service with no real problems.

One even made the jump from mono to wire, then wire to braid over its lifetime. They are impressively simple but you dont get the neat features.

Hands down its the cheapest way to get into the DD game and stay a while.

PS. The Diawa Bulls and MP's really put the beer drinking back into deep dropping. Those who own them agree.

I also owned a Kryistal 651, enough torque to pull the ocean floor up to the boat but a stupid belt can render you dead in the water.
