I have the Kiekhaefer Zero Effort and really like them. But what ever you get make sure you get them with the trim switches in them. I put the Gaffrig clamp on, on mine this spring and wouldn't be without it.

Here's some black Kiekhaefers on EBAY for a twin setup, No Reserve. Dude's starting out at $100

I've heard that sometimes the Marine Machine throttles fall back when you push them up, is this true? I think they are the coolest looking too.

LS, when I was on Lucy's Merc Special, Mark had a mini bungee that he wrapped around the shifter to keep in forward. "Cheap insurance".
I thought that was very clever. They had what looked like MM.

Thanks, but I was reffering to the throttles.

Arrow Re: Favorite Throttles?

I have had an opportunity to use a friends 42' Fountain a few times and I am having a hard time going back to right handed throttles no matter what brand they are; I like steering with my right and throttling with my left; especially at speed in rough stuff.
