Question for Cannon Pros

Recommended Posts

Brian Im not a pro at cannons but here is what I found out.

Mag 10Hs

Cannon Magnum 10 Downrigger

Long known as the workhorse of the Great Lakes, the rugged Magnum 10 has a strong, compact electric motor that is so dependable, it's guaranteed for life.

Combined with Cannon's clutch/brake control, it provides a smooth descent of the weight. The 3-digit counter tells you when you've reached the desired depth. It also makes quick work of raising the weight, so you can get it up and out of the way fast. For fishermen who head for big lakes, the Magnum 10 delivers a dependable day's work, day in and day out.

I am a Cannon Pro Staff member who uses the Digi-Troll IV and I am not yet familiar with these new units for this year. But, I believe the differences are that the Mag 10 HS has the 24" to 53" boom and the Mag 5 HS only has the 24" boom. The Mag 10 HS also has 400 feet of cable, while the Mag 5 HS only has 250 feet of pre-rigged cable. Also, the Mag 5 HS does not come with a swivel base, but I THINK the Mag 10 HS does. Other than that, I do not yet know of any other differences. If you want, I can call the Cannon people and find out for you. Let me know!
