In the market for a power pole. Does anyone have any imput on the 8 foot power pole. I currently have the 4 ft.. It works fine, but i have heard the 8 footer has a new improved motor and is also quicker?
I have an 8 footer and it is a great improvement over the 6 footer (there is no 4 footer). The 8 foot has a High performance pump and is 3 times faster than the original 6 footer. The original pump is similar to a bennett trim tab pump, where the new pump is like the Bobs jackplate pump. You can get the HP pump for a 6 footer to upgrade. If you are getting new, go with the 8 footer. the only disadvantage is it is 1 foot taller when mounted on transom. Also if you don't get the remote, you really miss out on using the power pole to the fullest advantage
