What type of 9V battery do you recommend for FISH WINCH® electric spinning reels?
Lithium, lithium, or lithium - Lithium 9V batteries are the only recommended battery and are required for maximum performance.
What brand of battery is recommended for FISH WINCH® electric spinning reels?
Energizer Ultimate Lithium 9V batteries work the best and are readily available at most stores.
How long will a lithium 9V battery last?
An Energizer Ultimate Lithium 9V battery provides an average of 240 minutes of total no-load run time. Using 240 minutes, and assuming 1 minute per lure retrieval for artificial lures, the battery should provide an average of 240 lure retrievals. If float (bobber) fishing and using 3 minutes per fish then the battery should last an average of 80 fish. Different variables (size of fish, lure type, casting distance, water current, etc.) will affect these estimates.
Why do you only recommend lithium batteries?
Most importantly, a lithium battery will supply full power to your reel until the battery is completely drained. An alkaline battery will gradually supply less power as it weakens and your electric reel will gradually get slower and less powerful as a result. Furthermore, a lithium battery weighs 25% less than an alkaline battery, lasts much longer, and performs better in hot and cold temperatures.
Can I use a rechargeable 9V battery with FISH WINCH® electric spinning reels?
Only use lithium 9V rechargeable batteries if you choose to use a rechargeable battery (performance will vary from brand to brand). Rechargeable alkaline 9V batteries perform poorly, do not last long, and should not be used with FISH WINCH® as they will hinder performance and cause your FISH WINCH® to run slower and be less powerful.
Can FISH WINCH® electric spinning reels be used with only one hand?
Yes...FISH WINCH® plus the Shimano Quick Fire II system allow for fishing (casting & retrieving) with only one hand.
Why do you offer two (2) different models of FISH WINCH® for spinning reels?
Each model has a different retrieve speed to accommodate various fishing styles & lure presentation. Our "80" equals 1.25 handle turns per second (crankbaits, swimbaits, etc) and the "95" equals 1.50 handle turns per second (spinners, spinnerbaits, etc).
What size fishing rod do you recommend using with FISH WINCH® 4000 electric spinning reels?
We prefer a 6' fishing pole with light, medium-light, or medium power (action).
Is the FISH WINCH® 4000 waterproof?
No, it is not waterproof. If exposed to water (submersion, rain, etc) turn the motor to a vertical position to allow any water to drain out.
