The Twister uses a tough multi-core flexible inner shaft so the prop shaft is curved, presenting the propeller at the correct angle and reducing the overall length considerably. The shaft on this unit is only 48” long, half the length of the Longtail design. The curve in the Twister-tail also allows the engine to sit lower in the boat, making the center of gravity lower and the boat more stable.

Twister FAQ:

Q) How strong is the flex shaft?

A) The Twister's flex shaft is a braided STEEL cable (aka a Bowden cable) that is 16mm thick. (almost 3/4"). We've thoroughly tested the Twister to ensure that our customers will get long life out of the shaft. In the event that a problem with the cable arises, we have 100's of replacment cables available.

Q) Does the shaft require lubrication?

A) Yes. There are TWO spots on the outer housing that are tapped to hold an M6 grease fitting. Fill the PTO housing with marine grease until full (approx 1-2oz of grease). The tail portion comes pre-lubricated and does not immediately require grease.

Q) Is there a warranty on the Twister?

A) Yes, ONE full year from day of sale.

Q) Can I return my Twister for a refund?

A) A full refund (excluding original shipping cost) will be given if the Twister is returned in new, unused condition within 14 days. If out of its original packaging, used or has been assembled and is less than 14 days old, the return will be subject to a restocking fee.
