    I have an 18 foot aluminum deep v boat that I want to buy a new kicker for, likely a Merc. 9.9. The kicker will almost exclusively be used for trolling, and in combination with my iPilot. I’m not gonna go with the Pro Kicker as it’s more than I want to spend, but should I go with the standard, or the command thrust? Looks like the gear ratio on the command thrust is the same as Pro Kicker, so I would think that’s the way to go since that’s such a good trolling motor, but a lot of what I read says the command thrust is for heavier boats, which mine is not.

    Look at the Suzuki. I think it’s the only 9.9 on the market with fuel injection. If you want to save money, look at a Tohatsu as it shares the same powerhead as the Mercury.
