    The electric downriggers has 2 belt on it. They are old version. One belt on the electric downriggers are new version. If I was wrong.

    I want to know if they can run with a 15 lbs cannon balls ?

    Are one belt downriggers pulling faster than 2 belt downriggers?

    Any more info about the downriggers?

    I have run Scotty downriggers since they first came out.
    the newer single belt and older double belt
    running 15 pounds off them is not a problem for either the 2 belt system or the 1 belt
    Have never owned the new high speed one

    I use the older 2 belt riggers with the small diameter booms and 15 lb balls with no issues at all. They do not retrieve as fast as the newer 1106’s tho.

    Yep, I ran the two belters off Swiftsure and lots of winter fishing with 15 pounders. No problem
