NEW FEATURE - COMPLETELY REDESIGNED TWIST THROTTLE CONTROL
TWISTER! A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH!
TWISTER! THE SHORT LONGTAIL!
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 50‚Äù 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.
Unique steering handle with 90 degree adjustment.

Easily detachable tiller handle quickly connects to either side of the frame providing both left hand and right hand steering.

Q) How strong is the flex shaft?
A) The Twister's flex shaft is a braided STEEL cable (aka a Bowden cable) that is 18mm thick. (almost 1"). 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 with marine grease until full (approx 1-2 oz of 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 XL is returned in new, unused condition and is still in its original wrapping within 14 days.

This thing is awesome! I have been running it in a River in 6 inches of water with sand and gravel and big rocks and it keeps on going. Have not even put one dentin the prop yet, already put 12 hours on it. It takes a little trial and error to get the unit adjusted to the weight in the boat but once you do you better hold on when you drop it in the water because it will jump out of the hole and throw you back. For the price and what I use it for I am more than satisfied with it, just have to see how long it lasts. Assembly was easy as well, I don’t even use the throttle on the handle, just set the throttle on the motor and ease on up the River.

One month in use, It seems to be a very well made motor and drive train system. Assembled easy and after a few tries, I got the trim set just right.
