Looking to add a Trollmaster kicker motor controller to my boat. Who uses one (or similar) and is it worth the investment? I troll exclusively on Lake Ontario and run a 9.9 Yamaha high thrust kicker in my 21’ Walkaround.

Thanks for any advice!

I have a trollmaster and I like it, but if I were to do it again I'd go i-troll.

Have run Trollmaster 2 for 10 years- definitely worth the money.  Only downside is lack of being waterproof- I used some rtv and electrical tape to seal mine which has helped.  I would also look at itroll for waterproof feature.

I just installed the PYTHON Steering and the I Troll!! I cant believe how much this has changed our steering plus the different patterns set up in the ITroll has made my boat able to make big S turns speed up slow down aith more idle control at your finger tips with a more precise speed adj ay the ball. Now 3-4 guys can fish instead of one having to steer the boat manually esp. If you have power steering.

I'm hearing great things about the iTroll from the Walleye guys.

I don’t think the Trollmasters are very precise. Lots of threads online about it and how to upgrade servo, etc., to improve it.

I just threw mine out. Between the lcd crapping out and jumping half a mile an hour when you only want a tenth it just wasn’t worth it to me. I’m back to using the tiller handle on my 9.9 merc

Thank you very much for the kind replies! Looks like the itroll is the way to go!

I have put a trollmaster on my last 2 boats and would not fish without it. Have had no problems other than some interference with fishhawk on first install had to reroute wires and fixed it
