LS, mark never took his hands off the throttles.
Usually, lucy steers, and he throttles.

My Latham Throttles fall back everytime, their springloaded. It was weird to get use to but I am now.
Also it took a long time for me to loose the left handed throttling thing I got use to with my Fountain, left or right hand I do not see much difference.

When You Give The 4 Choices You Need To Seperate Livorsi Marine Not To Be Confused With Gaffrig Performance Which Is Not Livorsi Marine. Livorsi Marine Has Been The Choice Of Throttles For Fountian, Baja, Formula, Nortec And Donzi For Over 10 Years.

I haven't gotten around to putting them in yet, but I'm hoping these are what I like.

These feel just damn good in your hand, fit like a glove, and the drive and trim buttons are larger and easier to use than my MM

YES!

But you can add tension and they'll stay put. But then they are pretty stiff.
