It is one of the best things I have ever used, the power steering is super.
Now as you know smallies run in packs. When you catch one I'll hit spot lock and hammer out as many as I can to I get em all
When you using Ultrex with Humminbird when you spot lock it will record a way point.
On a few of our trips years back before Ultrex we used Kerrys boat because he had Telons to lock, but if out deeper the would slow you down some by hooking the grass but not hold you. Son that Ultrex keeps you on the spot. It works hard and does a great job in high winds. The real sweet thing is I used alot of my spot lock way point this June from the two years since installing the Ultrex. Caught fish off most of them. In a drift in the wind, I about always blows on Saint Clair>
and you catch one there is most likely something about that area and it locks way point.If the wind is not blowing it gets really tuff
Always want some wind and West is the best, East is the least
and not too much. Now that's one of my Hot Buttons.
Now let me tell you about the Big Four stroke.
I love the sound at idle. This is the same Ranger Z520C with the same heavy load, full of fuel and check single and double with live wells full. The Mercury Four Stroke 250 bottom end and hole shot is greatly improved, mid range is much better. The Top End is about the same as the Two Stroke I traded. Running same props a Fury 24-4 blade it carries the boat better in ruff water and climbs rollers better. Now the 24-3 blade I have not test it on this motor yet because the Fury Four runs it so good. Right many of the guys running the Fury 23 on the heavy Rangers and like em well. I may try one when I can, but the 24-4 runs in good and will turn up 6100-6150 light. Red line is 6200. When I hit the Lotto going to upgrade to the new Big Birds. I got twin 1199 with side and down bow and console. They do what i need em to do. Hard to believe newer ones are that much better. But they always improving stuff, always a newer and better one before you can bolt em on the boat
Now some of the guys use the remote to help at the landing. If by you self the will back down unload and park next to the dock, put the trolling motor down and back it away from the dock and hit spot lock on the remote. They go park the trailer walk back down to the dock and bring the boat back with the remote. Now thats slick
Me I don't have enough never to do that
Also get the Cell Phone App to control the Ultrex. All I can say it's great.
