Planer Reel Conversion Kit

Part Number: BJCVN

For anglers that have an existing planer board mast on their boat (manual or electric) but want to upgrade their retrieval system this unit is perfect for you.  Our dual electric conversion kit will allow you to remove your existing retrieval setup and replace it with a powerful Cisco kit.  This unit comes standard with rail clamps that will fit on any planer board mast that is 7/8" to 1-1/2" diameter (larger clamps are available upon request).  This kit works great to upgrade reels on your Big Jon, Bert's, Traxstech and other popular mast systems.

The electric planer board reels are manufactured using precision CNC equipment from billet aluminum, stainless steel and bronze clutch components for a LIFETIME of use.  The electric motor is the strongest available on the market making the retreival of your planer boards occur in a smooth consistent manner.  Our mounting plate is extremely user versatile making it fit onto virtually any surface.


The mounting plate comes with 14 tapped hole locations for the universal mounting clamps to secure to and can be mounted to both the front and the back of the plate.  The line guide can also be adjusted to a wide variety of angles to suit individual needs.

Our electric planer drive reels are centered around a 7/16” stainless steel driveshaft and include a 6” solid aluminum reel, variable clutch, aluminum clutch knob, high torque electric motor (modified output shaft), universal mounting bracket and line guide (both easily adjustable in 12 different positions for ultimate versatility), and vee clamps capable of mounting from 7/8” to 1½” diameter rail (larger clamps are also available upon request).  For customers looking to mount this equipment to larger diamater rails we have larger vee clamps available upon request.

Further details about some of these components are listed below:

 12 Volt Motor Specs: Our solid aluminum 6” reels are powered by motors which are engineered and manufactured in the USA; these motors have 4 times more torque than our competitors making it possible to retrieve any size planer board at any trolling speed. Additionally, we seal our motors through an extensive weatherproofing process to ensure a long lasting life of the motor.  

Our new motors have two times more torque than our previous motor for a grand total of 90 lbs/in. per revolution! We dare you to compare us to other manufacturers specs!

 Specs for Reel and Clutch Components: The 6” reels come with a 7/16” stainless steel bore to fit the driveshaft. Attached to the shaft is also a heavy duty stainless steel collar which is built for precision adjustments of the clutch (other manufacturers use a thin snap ring which when too much pressure is applied breaks the ring causing the clutch components to rub against the motor housing, thus destroying the unit).

Our clutch components use a hard anodize pressure plate and 660 bronze machined clutch pads for virtually no wear on the unit even after years of constant abuse.  The clutch knob is also solid aluminum, and unlike plastic knobs, will neither break nor need replaced each season.
