This question is for those of you that use the troll perfect stabilizer on a motor guide. Looking at the design of the troll perfect, it would appear that adjusting it to decrease torque feedback/or keep it from moving from side to side in rough water would also increase the difficulty in moving the foot pedal; e.g. make it harder to steer. Comments please.
I have a 36v MotorGuide, and it used to buck and turn sharply to the left when on high, to the point that I would have to get going in a direction at a slower speed, and then ramp up power. I had one of the cables break, and after I got it back, the buy who repaired it had tightened the cables, and now it doesnt buck.On the MotorGuide, there are two threaded sleeves near the foot pedal. By extending them away from the foot pedal, you can tight the cables. I would suspect there is something similar on the MinnKota as well. Give it try before putting the troll perfect.
Just put one on my 75 lb Motorguide last week and so far I like it…has made it a bit quieter and I kind of cant believe how nice it is for the motor to stay pointed where you leave it…worth $25 to me.2011 Sabre FTD w/ Mercury 150 Pro XS, Power Pole Sportsman 2s, Humminbird 898 w/ 360 and 858 at bow, 898 at ConsoleFor lots of BCB love, follow me on instagram: @professorbeard
