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.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
