This product is used to retrieve the bait and drop-weight so as not to have to manually re-wind the line back on the reel from a deep depth. It is not designed to fight the fish.
The 15 degree flexible shaft, with universal type joint, extending from the Reel Crankie is then attached to a hand-held 3/8 in., battery powered drill (not included). This quick-action design gives you the ability to use the Reel Crankie in a rocking boat or a situation where you want to crank line back on your reel a deep depth. Off-shore fishermen are using the Reel Crankie for deep-dropping with Swordfish, Snapper, and Grouper.
Currently, the Reel Crankie fits Shimano, Penn, AVET and Alutecnos reels, as detailed below.
