    I find chamberlains the easiest

    I try to only use them

    I can easily adjust them i needed, as my downrigger rods have a very tell tale tip--a lite bite means loosen the rear adjustment so a perch can release it. If its rough and rods keep poppin, I tighten down the front adjustment and they'll stay set til fshy hits

    I use eagle claw yellow glass kokanee rods 7'6'' -2-8lb line

    $29 cabelas

    I added an arm and line to attach it to the downrigger.

    PS-While the scotty releases are a pain to judge release tension, they are stupid simple.

    Did I read this right...??? Your release is a modified Chamberlain? That would make even more interesting. I'm anxious to see it.

    I'm sorry about the confusion. They aren't a Chamberlain. It's a different style. Just cobbled something together.
