What are the options for power if you have no plugs. The batteries made for these reels are expensive.

A electric plug is not hard at all to install and is the way to go you can go as cheap as a duplex receptacle in a t-11 single gang box with SO cord and a male cord cap on your reel leed you can even make it detachable just remember to have a overcurrent protection like a fuse or breaker to save the reel in case of a problem ,if you want you can do all this for under 20$ or you can go all out have somebody do it for you get the coppertinned wire twistlock plug with cord cap and it will cost you around 200-300$.

We recommend the Daiwa TB1000 and they also make a two speed version and we have both in stock right now. They will be hard to get until March. I am told by my rep that we will not get any more until the end of February or the first of March. Thanks.

just remember to have a overcurrent protection






The TB 1000 has a built in thremo breaker.







Ever seen a battery like this? :) No attachment to the boat. All self contained. It's not $400 like Diawa wants either. It is a 8ah battery and will run the reel all day long.



Still they are not cheap for the custom battery and the charger.

Unless your handicapped and need an electric to fish with. recommend you wait it out a couple of months to see what our government is going to do with the grouper fishery in the gulf before you lay out $$$. case in point is the recent government closure on the east coast for grouper etc from 240 feet deep to 200 miles out.

my 2 cents.

Send me a direct email and I will put you in touch with the guy that builds them here in town.



He will build the battery and supply the charger for it.

X-shark that is pretty neat, i would love to know the guys who makes them, i'm just scared of the battery going out mid column and having to crank that extremly slow reel up manualy.
