I have a SBE, and my Dad has a SBE2, and they both are good guns. On my SBE, I replaced the recoil spring/tube with a stainless one after 12 years of heavy use. My old man's eagle 2 is still all original and functions beautiful in any weather. I waterfowl hunt extensively and IMO the black eagle is the way to go. I do not have any first hand experience with the SBE3 so I have no relevant opinion on it, but if it's like it's predecessor it should be a great gun too.

Personally, I would get whatever brand the main engine is so they match. I have a 9.9 Merc pro kicker on my Impact 1875, and it works great. Only complaint is it didn't have a trim switch on the motor, just at the remote throttle, so I had to put one on it. The stock 7 pitch prop would only get down to 1.5 mph, so I put a 5 pitch and now I can get down to .8-.9mph which allows me to get the motor rpm up just a touch when I troll at 2.0. I also highly recommend a speed controller like the trollmaster or similar. Really helps keep the correct speed.

Pick the one that you like, and you will be happy.

Pick the one that someone recommended, and you may not be.


Well said!

I've used both. I now only use suffix because I found it to hold its color longer before turning white. Can't go wrong with either one really, they're both good lines IMO.

I think it will be gone by this coming weekend. On Hunters point Cam you can see the main sheet slide to the north a little. Once it moves it doesn't take long to fall apart.

I'd also be curious. I've always wondered what fish actually yield but always forget to actually check. Interesting topic.

That is the same thing I do with the trollmaster. Adjust the speed with a dial, and steer with bow mount. My numbers are different, for my boat I'm usually between 57-70 on the readout while trolling. The number always changes depending on wind speed, but I pay more attention to the GPS speed on the graph than the setting on the motor control.

Jfro50 - I too will be looking for the itroll at the sports show. I'm curoius about there similarities/differences. Always fun to learn about something new

Question for BTJacobs21, You can set MPH on the itroll? If so does it have a built in GPS or how does it know how fast you are going?
