I purchased mine end of last month from a different seller for $90.11 Cheaper than listed price here plus free shipping. 2 weeks ago this was priced at 649.99 here on Amazon plus Shipping. I would have purchased everything here like most stuff I do. But the savings was to great.

I also purchased the Scotty 6″ extension base and power cord from same outdoor outlet and happy to say it was a breeze to install on our 1997 2509FW Trophy Hard Top w/Twin Mercury 150”s. Took my time and in less than a couple of hours I was in full operation mode.
To off-set my costs. I sold my old Cannon HP’s with swivels bases locally for $300.00. So this set-up really was only $427.00.

I will get another Scotty set-up before next years season begins. I don’t know where I seen or heard this quote I have below, but fishing at 140 feet of water & reeling those Cannons at that depth was taking the fun out of fishing. Not to mention the wife’s shoulder.

I have neck, wrist, and shoulder problems, but like to go fishing with my husband. So, he bought me this electric downrigger to make it possible to keep fishing with. I like the downrigger very much. It is sturdy. My only criticism would be that it is almost too powerful. It takes a little finesse to bring it up, so it doesn’t come up too fast. But, wow, it sure streamlines getting the line up or down quickly, multiple times.


Scotty 2106 High Performance FAQs:

What is the electrical connection to the boat?

12v twist lock-you can purchase the Scotty female receptacles that have wire leads a waterproof in-line fuse already installed then directly connect to your battery I have dual batteries port n starboard so each Scotty has its own battery. Just remember to unplug them when right away after your done fishing and 2nd important thing is Press and hold the button down on top of the line counter until the display goes off. Your lid/ line counter does last a lot longer that way. Those batteries do not get charged while unit is plugged in. Other than that these Scotty units are great!! I love them. Oh and when placing a auto shut off beads. Put another set a bit further down just for a precaution. Incase something happens to first set.

Scotty 2106 High Performance Reviews:

Good but flawed

3.0 rating

Mechanically it is a great product, but the digital counter is really problematic. My two 2106’s have failed 7 times. 7 counters have gone bad. Scotty replaces them so far. It is not a good thing to happen when you are fishing far from a service facility.

fantastic product but no real buffer

3.0 rating

fantastic product but no real buffer or if you bring the ball up to fast and it hits the pulley the ball is ripped off and $50 to $80 dollar in gear is on the bottom. If you are lucky the fuse blows and presuming you have spares you are out of action for only 10 min. Also the digital counter fails or fogs. For the up button it needs to be made idiot proof and for the counter you need a better part.

Scotty's are the only way to go

5.0 rating

Had these things for years now… for the people who lost gear on them… GET THE AUTO STOPS… From there, only use auto up!!!! (Turn the black ring around the green button to the right) you will only lose gear if you are hitting the jog button (green button inside the ring) which you should never be doing unless you want to change your depth it’s running at.
These are the best downriggers on the market. They will pull a 15/20 lb ball up like it’s nothing. I have never had any failure as everything is mechanical and 100% re-build-able. All parts are cheap and easily available which is more than i can say about any of the competing downriggers. If you dont want to take the chance on the digital counter (which i have never had a problem with) than get the Scotty 1106. Either way the Scottys really are the only way to go!

Old counters are more reliable

I love the Scotty’s over the cannons. But my digital reader already went out on one side within first 30 days of ownership
