The anchor pulley has made catfish and spec fishing easier. I fish from the 15' Classic Gheenoe. The pulley allows me to pull the anchor from the back without getting up any longer. Do disable the spring and rope catch, you will not need it and it will cause you to drift if the river rises. The pulley could be improved by allowing a pin release to insert\remove the rope when not in use. If you fish from a smaller boat make sure to put a rod holder or something high enough to allow the rope to stay on the edge of the boat so the rope line is not through the middle of the boat. Tight lines and good fishingâ¦
This anchor pulley works just fine. It's not fancy but it's worth every penny of it's price. Plenty strong for a small boat (aluminum fishing etc.) and has a lot of holes for mounting options. People have complained about a weak spring. Mine seemed plenty strong but I like it better without the spring. I let the anchor rope go slack when the anchor is set. The weight of the rope lets the toggle drop and grip the rope.
So far so good. I installed both of them today, did a dry run in my barn have not been on water until next week. I think they will work fine. I see several complained about the SPRING breaking, most of these type of pulleys don't even have a spring so if it does break I don't think it is a problem. I have recommended them to a friend.
