Availability In Stock!

The MZ-1500S Single Rod Holder Downrigger.

This downrigger has a Port mounted single, fully adjustable rod holder with 9 angular adjustments and 24 rotational positions with 1 handed angular adjustability. This rigger has the same motor, upgrades and options as all Magnum Metalz downriggers and offers all the same features. Built tough for everyday use from stainless steel & anodized aluminum. Capable of lifting 25 lb weights in both motor speeds day in and day out gives you the deep water advantage. Comes equipped with a powerful 12 volt motor with IP66 water protection, tinned power cable for years of worry free use and a liquid smooth clutch which eliminates need for auto stop. This rigger also offers the through center wiring for clean, professional mounting and a minimal 3" x 3" mounting plate with the small boater in mind. It was brought to our attention by one of our customers that connecting the line to the line release with a long boom was difficult due to the fact that the "over the spool" rod holder limited the angle at which the boom could be lifted before the rod holder interfered. His solution was mounting the rod holder on the side, so we did, Introducing the "Port" & "Starboard" singles. Now, rod and rod holder are conveniently mounted to the right or left of the boom, out of the way when re-setting rods, brilliant!

The Downrigger comes Equipped as follows:

  • 1 foot, 1 piece Boom (Upgrade available)
  • 1 Fully Adjustable Rodholder
  • Spacer Base (Swivel Base Upgrade available)
  • Ball Hanger

Excellent Choice / Great Customer Service
Written by Matthew Staben on 13th Aug 2020

I fish in Northern Idaho (Lakes Pend Orielle, Coeur d'Alene, and Priest) as well as Lake Roosevelt in Eastern Washington - in each, the waters are hundreds of feet deep. This downrigger will send 15 pounds to the bottom and back at a nice rate (200/fpm) without budging. The counter is accurate, according to my fish finder - I have gained a new confidence in my Lowrance HDS's depth soundings, funny as that may seem. Overall, I've found the downrigger easy to manage; however, once while the weight was not free to drop I accidentally hit the down switch causing a terrific wire-nest! Even so, it was easy enough to unwind as the spool comes right off permitting rescue. I now unplug the downrigger whenever the ball isn't hanging off the boom to be safe - it is easy enough to manage the spool when not powered. There's something to be said for power-less down release as with Scotty downriggers. The downrigger will disassemble into its few individual parts - there are no mysterious shims and plastic parts to crack or lose - its simplicity inspires confidence in ownership. Based on other reviews, I chose the side rod holder design so that the boom which flips up and locks in position won't be blocked by the over-the-spool rod holder, something to think about. In all, because of the compactness of this downrigger and its simple maintainability, on top of the excellent and personal customer service I've received from Magnum Metalz, I'm already planning for the next Magnum Metalz downrigger for the port side of my boat! Tight lines!

Review of MZ-1500P

This is an absolutely excellent product. The rigger works flawlessly and is as smooth as a baby's bottom!!! I have Traxtech tracks and the ONLY thing I would consider changing is adding a bit of a riser to them as it is a little tight for my fat fingers between the rigger and the track. Other than that, love Love LOVE!! Time will tell on how they hold up to Alaskan winter king trolling! I really doubt I will be disappointed! Thank you for making another fantastic product!!
