Default Down Rigger Wanted

I am looking to buy a downrigger but have never used one. I would like to buiy a used one before I spend 250 or more for a newer one. If anyone has an older one sitting around their not using and would be willing to let it go somewhat cheap please let me know.

Thanx

I've had great luck with this one and the free rod works very well also

Can anyone explain how the heck you use the handle when the rod holder looks like its in the way?

Don't know -- I do not have that one. But I will say that I like the handle to be mounted vertical like that. The cannon downriggers I use when I am in Alaska are sweet, with the one way cutch and the hella fast retrieval rate. But for the money the horizontal mounted downriggers work pretty good.
