        Tame your big motor

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Easy To Use
        • Rugged enough
        • Simple
        • Slows the biggest motors

        Cons

        • Rope too short easy fix

        Best Uses

        • Trolling 1200 RPM less

        Comments about Davis Instruments The Happy Troller:

        Mounted on a Merc 200, performed great. Slowed me down to just over 1 mph and up as I needed allowing engine to run 1200 RPM's or slower. To retract the blade is easy, just pull rope and put engine in forward gear, prop wash will push blade up, release rope and you're locked in up position.... Easy.
