Top reviews from the United States

Stability is unreal. Drive feel and performance is great. Plenty of power and speed. The ability to auto reverse hands free is my main reason for choosing this over a flipper drive. Going full speed and being able to stop the boat within seconds is a very over looked feature of the prop pedal drives. See a fish, rocks, stump, weeds and stop almost instantly without reaching for anything.
Cockpit set up is roomy with pockets and tracks and storage console.
Old Town has the best warranty and reputation for customer service. I have not had to contact them myself though other than registering the kayak on their website which was easy.
