Here are a couple of recent videos of my PA14 in action.

I repaired the video links. I think the signature check box affects the link up.

Nice work, nice fish :D
I notice you have your anti reverse off and wondered why not just use your drag, or am I missing something ?
Your PA is very well set up, great job.....
Is that a rear view mirror on the left, or a small plasma screen :D ?
Evolve motor ?
Keep up the good work :D
Cheers, from Tasmania

Thanks rodrocket. I don't use the anti reverse on ultra light tackle. For one, you can control the amount of pressure applied to the fish and two, it doesn't twist the line as much as it comes off the same as it went on.
I have a mirror on the left side. It is helpful to see if someone is going to run over my lines. The technique for the trout is to dump a lot of line out and drag your grub/minnow on the surface.
No, thats not an evolve motor. Its a Minn Kota PD with i-pilot. It uses GPS to control speed and direction and will hold you in place like an anchor.

I use an optima D34M Battery laid on its side under the center hatch. I made a power control box which has a circuit breaker and relay kill switch. I made a video of how it is installed:

That right there is the future pimp my ride add on! I'm waiting for lithium batteries to come down to a reasonable price. The new 2013 M/K I-pilot Is Sooooooo Sweet.
