excellent idea n a real game changer, but what does one do to rotate it?
The old 180 was a great idea, but requires some fiddling n a hand off the rod to engage.
Is this why the actions are all in FF in the add to hide whats really required?
PA's are a great hull but having an instant reverse is what I need.

That is awesome, game changer... My only gripe with my pa12 is the lack of reverse, painful when you're trying to keep out of the snags..
doesn't look like it will retrofit into older hulls though.

Not great, ya still need to take ya hand off the rod, n if like me you're a right handed winder, the directional control is on the wrong side, but still way better than the 180 and looks to be way more instant

If you started fishing with your rod in the correct hand you would be fine!

Yeah looks like those praying for a retro fit on older kayaks are out of luck.

I'd imagine this has got to be the mirage drives final form - how do you improve on that in a human powered vessel.
