First thing, I didn't design it.
That would be mr. tenatious Dave, I did do the programming of the cnc's
and helped with designing it.
Team effort on this one, lots of ideas thrown around. some implemented some not.

It operates off a 12v auto battery, with either sip and puff "for people with no use of thier arms" or
a joystick for people with limited upper body movement.

Basically when the user want's to cast "joystick" they press the stick forward, this turns on a gearmotor and activates a 12v electric clutch.
This rotates the mechanism in a casting motion, about 1/4 of the way back a cam engages depressing the trigger on the reel itself.
When the user wants to cast they let go of the joystick, a torsion spring "stout little bugger" rotates the mechanism forward.
The same cam then releases the trigger on the reel, perfect "hopefully" cast.

When a strike occurs the user pulls the joystick rearward, this engages a second gearmotor that is attached to the reel with a set of toothed pulleys reeling in the catch.

I can't stress enough how many people and ideas were involved in this, it sure wasn't all me by a long stretch.
We have one small modification left, and these things should be out there. It's a simple mod that involves a limit switch.
