    In Europe the Bennett is much more expensive, and the zipwake is much cheaper, so it has a great price/ quality ratio, better than traditional trimtabs with automatic systems.

    I have installed the e series Zipwakes on a 70 foot yacht. I removed Bennett tabs to do so. The boat travelled from Florida to the Great Lakes via the St Lawrence River. Other then getting some debris in one of the units requiring a quick dip to clean it, the units worked flawlessly. I would never go back to Trimtabs.

    I’ve had these in for one summer season and so far, great. My boat is a 26′ center console. They really do work as advertised. The systems from the other electric trim tabs manufacturer in Florida had automatic systems but they were too slow in the reaction time and it was difficult to use properly. Not these. These things are quick. I replaced a set of Lenco’s that were operating fine after 5 years and 600 hours. The upgrade has been nice and really just enjoyable. The kids no longer have to worry about hitting the big stainless blades of the old system (which was a real issue on my boat). The US distributor was great to deal with, they answered all my emails and calls. Cheers from an icy n. virginia.

    Does the zipwake save fuel?
