Test results for New Pro-Drive CXX Dual Rig

Postby pwhnts5 » Thu Sep 19, 2013 10:39 am

We did our first new dual rig last month with the new CXX Pro-Drive Duals and it is a beast.

Boat: Phowler Extreme 2060 with full hard blind, remote steering, extra boxes, fold down beds, heaters, propane etc.

Motors: New CXX36 Duals, Stock with carbs.

Performance:

Deep water

One Man (200) - 32 mph
Two Men (200 and 390) 30 mph
Three Men (200, 390 and 380) 29 mph
Four Men (200, 390, 380 and 180) 28.2 mph
Five Men (200, 390, 380, 180 and 265) 27.5 mph

With four men and all the hunting gear the rig still averages 27.5 mph in deep water wind and current.

I shallow water on a straight run with three men it hit 31.5 mph.

Shallow water performances: In the mud and weeds this set-up is amazing, even with the four man load it will jump on step almost at once, regardless of mud, weeds, etc. The FPR reverse on just one motor will pull it back out of just 6" off water over hard bottom and through the weeds and soft mud in just a inch or two. The new Gen 3 boxes just dig in the soft stuff, they will idle the rig right up to dry ground or into the thick cattails to bury the boat.

The owners of this rig are not little fellas and just can't believe this rig (which load with blind, gear and 4 men is tipping the scale at 2700-3000 lbs) just does not slow down and runs at 4300-4400 RPM max speed regardless of load.

I love my 2066 dual set-up with 2011 PDXX36s, but after running this rig with all the improvements to the motors, reverse speed, trim, clutch and the power of the new GEN 3 lower units, I might just have to build a new demonstrator to use late season!!!!!

Dual surface drives on a 20' boat with a hard blind, and no pictures? C'mon man!

Sorry, that one got out of here before I could get pictures of it. Hopefully the owner will post up some picture of it in action. We are rigging another dual rig right now, 2272 Phowler Extreme Big Water with custom 2'N1 Blind and dual CXX36 Pro-Drive with Illowa Stage I kits on both motors. It is looking bad ass, we should have that one on the water for testing sometime next week.
