After waiting months for a replacement mirage drive from another company...I canceled my order. Next, I contacted Southwood and received the drive in 2 days.
Ordering was very easy and the product was received in a short time.
Love the reverse capability! Too early to see if there are any weak points. Super fast shipping. Only two days to get to Alabama. Came wrapped in cardboard with a little bubble wrap. No damage. For $820 you would expect some kind of packaging from the factory.
Thanks to SKC for the fast shipping as always. The reverse works great. No more leaning forwards to grab the drive and flip it backwards. The forward tendon handle on mine broke, but Preston was nice enough to ship me a new one. Well worth the money if you need to replace an older drive or fish around pilings/structure. w
Drive arrived properly packed, no damage at all. Nice. Got these for the reverse feature, which is absolutely critical when you fish structure like me. The forward and reverse work really well, just pull and go. These are just as fast as the previous years model of Mirage drive unlike what some people will tell you. My pull handle broke on my 8th time out, but Southwinds sent me a replacement immediately. Good service. If you need one, buy it here.
