4 posts in this topic

Looking to get a trolling motor for my 2019 Outback.   Has anyone looked or used the one that Island Hopper makes?

i looked at all versions of mirage drive motors when i was gearing up and came to the conclusion they were all a huge waste of $$.  i made a watersnake asp t24 motor and diyd the entire thing for ~$200 including a valence u1 12rt 40a battery and pwm.  ymmv

The Island Hopper seemed over priced for what you get so I went another route. I went with a transom mounted motor instead of cassette drive because I wanted the option to use the mirage drive in conjunction with the motor. The transom mount also allows me to get into much shallow water.

I have used several motors and one of them was a 46 LB Island Hopper with the Mirage cassette.  Its a very powerful motor that fits the Hobie well.  They have come down in price since mine was purchased.
