Mertens New Titan Tiller Assist

1 post in this topic

As many have heard, Brunswick has purchased Tim Merten's Power Steer company. I would imagine this time next year you will not be able to get Tim's product on anything but a Mercury. Brunswick didn't purchase Merten's current inventory, just the product line.

I'm curious to know if anyone is using Tim's Latest invention, the Titan. I believe Tim started a new company but I don't know the name. It is a tiller assist without the hydraulic pump. Per a demostration I received, the motor will not move unless you touch the tiller handle. So you can cruise at full speed and not worry about having to deal with the torque feedback. But if you are to make a turn, you don't have the hydraulic assist to help you. They are rating the Titan on any motor that is 115hp or less.

      Gave grindstone a try yesterday. I guess the dredging made a difference, but had I not known it happened, I wouldn't have noticed. Was a bad day for my outboard to have carburetor issues, as the wind was blowing much harder than the predicted 7 MPH. Battery got drained pretty quick trying to troll with the electric motor in that wind. Regardless, was still a nice day. Caught 1 little smallie, a 28 inch pike (which was a blast to catch on ultra light tackle), and a nice 17 inch rainbow trout.

      Got out for the first time this year last weekend. Opening morning got my two roosters and then started scouting. I didnt see much for birds all day until in the evening when I saw about 40-50 redheads on one pond. Set up there the next morning with my old man and we got 3 reds, 3 gwt, and a woodie and mallard drake. Next day saw more ducks on that pond as well and ended up setting up there as well the next morning. We shot 5 bluebills and 2 bonus geese that morning. Then shot a nice fat rooster that day and headed home. Im off the next 6 days after today so we'll see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. I will post pics on the other thread when i get a chance.
