James, I'll be sending you a pm for a spare power cord. I've been using my 1000 for a year and a half and have nothing but good to say about it. Even dropping heavy weight to hold bottom out in the stream the reel does great.

Question for you guys that use a swivel rod holder. I'm considering installing a swivel holder on our boat to assist in getting the rig back in or grabbing a fish when picking up from a drop. Do you guys find that this is a benefit, or not quite worth it? If so, what kind of swivel rod holder do you have and how do you like it?

Hi. Any updates on this?

What kind of plug do you use?

I am thinking of getting into deep dropping and I saw your rod/reel combo deal.

No plugs are included, just alligator clips. I stock hubbell plugs if you would like one installed.

If you want info on the new reel, send me your email address and I'll put you on the formal announcement.

Thanks!

Re; plugs... there's always a debate on which are best but I've been using the Kristal plugs on my boat for 10 years and I really like them. Easy, quick, and no rust or corrosion so far. The slot on the plug makes it easy to align properly, even without being able to see the plug like if it's up under the gunnels where mine are located. The male plug that attaches to the reel cord has a nice built-in strain relief setup too.

Queens, snowys, tile - the 1000 will do just fine.
500 series is a very small reel, I barely sell any of these.
1000 will fit your needs.
1500 will probably be a bit overkill for what you are asking, double the drag of the 1000 series, 20% more line, and 2 motors - high speed mode and high torque mode.
50 of the 1500TM reels were released into the wild last week.
I'll have more in stock at the end of this month, and will provide a more detailed thread when the time comes.

Thanks Lead Change!

Those look nice, I got the Minnkota trolling motor plugs on mine. They work ok.

I had a PM on the Kristal plugs asking about polarity but could not attach images to my response so attaching them here.
The Banax power cord has red and black leads so it's easy to determine polarity but there are no clear polarity markings on the Kristal plugs, as far as I know. so you need to keep the polarity straight. I suggest using a Sharpie to mark your positive and negative pins on the Kristal plugs as in my pictures below. That way you can wire the female side properly to you DC power supply.
I also added RTV silicone after connecting the leads... it's cheap insurance against corrosion.
Good luck.

I see some questions on kite swivels having an issue feeding thru the level wind, that would be an issue for me as it will be mainly a kite reel.

Current design is not kite friendly, sorry. Maybe down the road.

Caught a sword Saturday and a 57lb Warsaw. The 1000 handled them both! Great reels!

Are you kidding?

Did you leave a voicemail? I was in Maine all last week, reception was spotty - but I would have received a voicemail if you left one...
Deepdropper.com works 24/7 as well.

But if I didn't return your call, I do sincerely apologize.
I'm still in my shop right now. But will be at Icast the next 2 days - leave a voicemail if I don't answer - my assistant will be shipping while I'm gone.

Not sure what happened James - I sent you an email. I am interested Banax K1000 Electric Fishing Reel. Can you also send me the spooling options?

I live in Aruba and will be in Miami for one day, arriving July 15 and leaving the next dy. Would it be possible to have everything delivered at the hotel?

Paul
