Is powerdrive v2 better than powerdrive v1?

7 posts in this topic

In a dilemma of getting a new bowmount since mine crapped out. Found a regular powerdrive for a good price. Would that be a better deal than going for a Powerdrive v2? I don't know what the difference between the two is/performance wise/problem wise. Any info would help.

My understanding is, there is NO difference in the Versions!

I'd go with price. Our best one was a v1 autopilot, an 812 years ago.

edit - best meaning "fewest problems".

I'd get the V2. It has a better foot pedal and a $50 rebate.

Rebate ended on July 1, '09. Dang trolling motor had to [PoorWordUsage] on me right after. Guess it was old and took a lot of abuse. Only physical difference that I saw was the release lever. Couldn't find anything else. Pocket book just doesn't fit a nicer one. Also seems resale value really holds for trolling motors, even after 5+ years.

Foot pedal is different, but if you get the CoPilot unit, you won't even use it.

Get the Copilot and you will never go back to the pedal.

    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
