I wonder if it's hit or miss on individual knives, because I had the cheap green and yellow Electric Fisherman that lasted for years, then in the past four years have gone through two of those and the Rapala corded. The Rapala I'm using now wants to stay on all the time.
I'm going to pull the trigger on that American Angler, I think. Wish I'd have known this a week before Father's Day! Now it's going to be yet another Amazon Prime purchase that falls under the "Dad's at it again" category.
