Without a doubt the best longtail mud motor built. Period. If you have any specific questions just PM me. I'll be happy to answer!

What hull are you running your 10hp on. Photos? Speed?

I have the 23 HP and couldn't be more pleased. It basically drives itself - literally. With the adjustable tracer plate it can be adjusted to keep the prop right in the sweet spot just below the water surface. Even with the shorter frame it out performs my previous Mud Buddy. Having the removable handle is also a plus for me to gain the extra space in the garage when not in use. The advantage I see with the 23 HP is the backup pull start if my battery ever died - I'm sure other mud motor brands with the Vanguard motor have that as well though. Support has also been great...even after the sale.

Take one for a spin and you'll get what all the fuss is about.

Well I went to the website of these modern marvels and found out that the 6.5 hp swomp lite weighs 95 lbs. My 6.5 weighs in at 63 ils. How is that better ? They do have some fancy gimmicks on them tho but not worth the extra 800 for me.

I can't comment on the Lite models. And just because one motor is lighter than another doesn't mean it's better. I'm glad you can decide which motor is best by looking at pictures on the internet and seeing which on weighs the least.
