Complete set-up including:

* 'Bullet Fishing' Phase II Torpedo - custom design / build for west coast fishing - 2 speed 50lb thrust Powertrend 12v Electric motor. Adjustable tow-hook for various rip/wind/swell conditions. Easy to load battery packs.
* 2 battery packs - one with 3x9ah (does 2x1.8km sets), one with 3x7.5ah (does 2x1.2km sets) in west coast conditions.
* Magnet operated fully sealed reprogrammable timer - currently programmed for the following options:
1. 5min 50lb thrust (short and sharp sets)
2. 1min 50lb thrust (punch through surf) then 1 min 40lb thrust (attach traces) then 8min 50lb thrust (get to fishing grounds asap) - 10min total
3. 10min 40lb - for east coast or small west
4. 1min 50lb then 1 min 40lb then 13 min 50lb - 15min total
5. 15min 40lb
6. 1min 50lb then 1 min 40lb then 18 min 50lb - 20min total, does around 1.8km depending on conditions
* 3:1 ratio manual winch with 2km 290lb mono (strong as I could find), shock cord, pre-stoppered section with epoxied braid stoppers (better for mainline than crimps) starting at 300m. Enough for sinkers, 25 hooks with some to spare.
* 3 racks of traces with clear tubing with floats/lumo beads
* Trace making pack with hooks, shark clips, mono, clear tubing, floats, lumo beads, etc. Easy to make up the traces once you have the racks - will show buyer how.
* 5 sinkers ranging from 8-16oz

As you can see from the photos, this is an extremely effective unit. Only used 3 times (once just for sea trialing) with outstanding results each time. Easy to use and very effective getting through surf without getting put off course due to its weight/stance, shape and power.

As new - everything washed out thoroughly inside and out with salt-away (torpedo is fully waterproof inside) and inox'd after each use.

Very reluctant but forced sale - wedding blowouts! grrrr - also lack of time to use

Ready to go - just add bait + water
