Cisco Planer Reels: Cisco Electric Planer Reel
The electric drive reel is great for designing custom rigging to personal preferences but Cisco has made it possible for users to take this to the extreme. The mounting plate comes with 14 tapped hole locations for the universal mounting clamps to secure to and can be mounted to both the front and the back of the plate. The line guide can also be adjusted to a wide variety of angles to suit individual needs. Our electric planer drive reels are centered around a stainless steel driveshaft and include a 6 solid aluminum reel, variable clutch, aluminum clutch knob, high torque electric motor (modified output shaft), universal mounting bracket and line guide (both easily adjustable in 12 different positions for ultimate versatility), and vee clamps capable of mounting from 7/8 to 1½ diameter rail. Further details about some of these components are listed below: 12 Volt Motor Specs: Our solid aluminum 6 reels are powered by motors which are engineered and manufactured in the USA; these motors have 2½ times more torque than our competitors making it possible to retrieve any size planer board at any trolling speed. Additionally, we seal our motors through an extensive weatherproofing process to ensure a long lasting life of the motor. Specs for Reel and Clutch Components: The 6 reels come with a 7/16 stainless steel bore to fit the driveshaft. Attached to the shaft is also a heavy duty stainless steel collar which is built for precision adjustments of the clutch (other manufacturers use a thin snap ring which when too much pressure is applied breaks the ring causing the clutch components to rub against the motor housing, thus destroying the unit). Our clutch components use a hard anodize pressure plate and 660 bronze machined clutch pads for virtually no wear on the unit even after years of constant abuse. The clutch knob is also solid aluminum, and unlike plastic knobs, will neither break nor need replaced each season.
