Default Teezer Reels

I recently fished on a boat with electric teezer reels. My question is do manual reels work well also or are you limited to small teezers?

Work just as well....but.....possibly the most overpriced equipment you can put on a boat, in my opinion.

Interested in your experience with these... about to order a pair on 7" hardtop. Look to be a solid product.

Thanks.

I have been using Alans (Sportteaser) reels since he started manufacturing them. I have one of the first sets.Mine have worked great since day one. Zero issues of any kind. I would highly recomend his reels. In fact I just pulled mine for the first time since they were installed and they still look like new.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm in the process of finishing up a batch of 72 reels right now. I'm about 2-3 weeks away from having stock. I have all the stainless parts machined. I'll finish up cleaning them all up this week and take the parts to the electropolisher next week. I should be good to go after that.

They look great. How about posting a picture of the whole setup? Do you run it off of the outriggers or what?

I have a small eye on the edge of my t-top for the line of the teaser reels to go through. Then through a Stainless ring on the outriggers.

Can your outriggers hold up to the weight of a dredge?

Or do you just pull light teasers off of the outriggers?

My taco outriggers slip back with just the weight of trolling lure.

You would need electric teaser reels for a dredge atleast the dredges we use. No way you could wind them up manualy. We use a rod with a 80 for dredges. The ring for the teasers is part of the first eye on the rigger
