We recently were lucky enough to be the first people in the DFW area to try out the brand new MirageDrive from Hobie.

Here's our thoughts on it. Enjoy!

Do you need to take your feet off pedals to flip the fins. That aspect in the vid looks a little clumsy,

Could you effectively use these as a brake. eg when passing over a fish mark when you are sounding up, to be able to stop quickly and back up would be handy rather than having to circle around and often loosing the mark.

No need to take your feet off the pedals to flip the fins into reverse...simply give the shifter a swift tug, and the fins reverse. Same idea shift back into forward motion. Yes, it works great for backing out of structure or stopping on a meter mark.

Howie - if you guys and gals at Hobie want to show how well these work backing out of structure, I would be more than happy to buy one early and make some video's for you. I find myself in need of reverse way to often! :)
