Ken's Power Caster is a fishing accessory device designed for use by individuals with severe physical disabilities or spinal cord injury. This fully-automated device enables users to independently cast out their line, hook, fight, retrieve and land fish. The universal mounting bracket can be secured to almost any accessible surface (i.e. a wheelchair, boat rail, dock rail, etc.) and allows the cater to turn and swivel for casting in any direction. The unit consistently casts a large wooden bobber 100 feet. Although lighter baits and lures will not cast quite as far, the caster will throw heavier weights over 100 feet. The controls can be activated in a sequence to create a pumping action with the rod, allowing the user to play-out and land large fish. The unit comes completely assembled and includes a Shakespeare PRIUS 7foot spinning rod and an electric retrieve Zebco 33T fishing reel. The unit is available with push-button controls (extremity or chin) or sip-and-puff controls.For completely hands-free fishing, a chest plate is worn on the user's chest which supports a fully adjustable arm and control box containing either the three push buttons that can be activated by the user's chin or three adjustable modular hoses that can be positioned for sip-and-puff control. For extremity control, the chest plate can be used as a base to position the buttons either in the lap or near a foot for push-button control.
POWER: Uses a 12-volt direct current (DC) battery (not included). DIMENSIONS (HxLxW): The caster case is 11.5 x 16 x 3.5 inches. WEIGHT: The caster and rod and reel weigh 20 pounds.
