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 :)

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.
