Default Anyone have experience with Sideriggers?

I'm thinking of purchasing a couple of these, but would like to hear from others to see if it's worth it. Seems like a decent set-up. Here is a website I found on them.....

We looked at these closely before opting for outriggers. The side rigger and outrodders seem to run baits/lures in a similar position and we already had outrodders. I'm glad we went with 15' outriggers on the T-top. I like the wider spread we pull.

Depends on what you are pulling with them. If you are tuna fishing and pulling bars i would recomend real outriggers. If you are pulling other baits that you do not need spred or height go for it.

I used them on my 1st boat as I had no option for outriggers. They are very useful if you cannot have outriggers but they are not on the same level.
