Heads up if you have pre 2011 Cannon Mag 10, 15 and 20HS Downriggers. They called today and said they will no longer support these models. We tried to order all the circuit boards they have left. They only had one. They let is go down to the wire before announcing it.

Rumor has it that FISH307 has acquired the electrical schematics and MAY, and that is a big MAY, reproduce them.

So if you are one of those folks who like to change out their own boards when they take a crap, hunt no and hunt fast to see if you can find any anywhere.

The newer style Cannon’s (few years old now) are practically bullet-proof with little need for servicing. If you have a pre-2011 it’s only a matter of time before the casing splits on you (if you havnt addressed this). My two cents.

That sounds even worse. At least when the casing seperated I was able to grab my rod and hug/hold the downrigger as pops manually retrieved the weight.

If I understand/remember correctly that gentleman was fighting cancer, I think his daughter was trying to help him along for awhile. Really nice folks.

Well called them and was told based on my detail about when my cannon 10 HS stopped working, tech said “just need to buy another DR” called cannon waited on phone forever and was told tough, don’t make them anymore. Checked “Fish307” no dice, fuck cannon!!! Just my 2 cents that may not be worth 2 pennies. Anybody have a circuit board laying around????
