I am trying to decide on which speed control system to purchase for our 2002 Supra Launch DD. We mainly do wake boarding and some surfing. I have searched and only found reviews on the early versions of the Ridesteady system. Was hoping somebody might have some good advise or pointers for either system. The boat typically will not have much extra ballast beyond the factory rear tank, front bag in bow and two smaller bags in the rear locker if that matters?
I have the old version of ride steady (and have been really happy with it), but really, which ever one you can get for less is what I would purchase. Both are quality products, so you can't go wrong with either of them.
The PP group buy is the same price as the RS retail price if you document the install w/pics.
The RS has a bigger digital screen in the 3.5" and includes air/water temp. and the really easy screen navigation control knob and is easy on battery life.
The PP can be ordered with a Supra logo on it.
Both Great systems with excellent customer service. Cant go wrong either way.
Ridesteady costs more even with the extra step of taking pictures of the install. compared to the Group buy. Especially if you need a 5" gauge. The air/water temp requires holes in the boat. i dont care that much about these to things to drill a hole.
