    What kind of a budget are you looking at?

    If new talk to parts for trucks they are your fisher dealer or ocean equipment they deal with diamond/boss and a few other lines and compare prices

    Most important thing is get a feel for the dealer,parts and support and the biggest selling points in any deal if they give you a bad vibe look elsewhere

    Agree 1000%

    I have had good luck with the PolyCaster. If you do go metal, get the stainless. Plus the new PolyCasters have two motors. Sweet.
