One word of caution with franks boards. They work as advertised but they will destroy the Riviera automatic planer board reels. Franks boards pull crazy hard, they require top notch, durable equipment.

Yes, I tried reeling in my A A redwood boards with my cheap, plastic, Wille manual reels and the plastic just folded from the pressure.  I now have Cicso electric reels to bring in these boards.  Cisco stuff is top shelf, all CNC machined aircraft aluminum (no plastic anywhere on them) and the motors are quite literally twice the size of the Big Jon electric planer reel motors.
