Mirage Drive 180 Forward Reverse
Continuing the development of the Mirage Drive System, Hobie has now produced the Mirage Drive 180 Forward Reverse. A mirage drive with the capability to switch into reverse with the simple pull of a cable. Imagine being able to reverse back to manoeuvre into that perfect cast position or pull fight a fish trying to ensure you into a snag.
There are 2 shifters, one green for forward and a longer red one for reverse. Pulling the appropriate cable pivots both MirageDrive fins 180 degrees, reversing the direction of the thrust from the fins.
The fins themselves have been completely redesigned to not only allow for the directional change but also to increase the efficiency of the fins themselves, providing the same amount of power as the ST and ST turbo fins.
The shift cables are made up of braided spectra line connected to high strength, snag free nylon handles which ticu into a Bungee retainer when not needed.
The uses of the shifters are endless. Just imagine being able to hold yourself in position against the current making that perfect cast into a snag, or being able to reverse a fish out a tight spot.
