I don't regret buying this for my atak 120. The main reason I use this is when moving around on lake .. saves tons of time and energy! It's a bit noisy so if your expecting to be using it like a trolling motor I won't really work so well for that. I hope they make some sort of carrying case for this because it's worth as much as my kayak. Does make people smile while your ripping around when your not paddling:)

Pretty darn nice. Ived used it in my atak 140 and my Thresher 155. The throttle and display is really nice (make sure you set it to MPH as it came out of the box set to KPH). Full bore it was moving my loaded atak 140 at about 5.5mph into the wind and gave me an estimated run time of a bit over an hour. cutting it down to a leisurely 2/2.5 mph gave me an estimated run time over 9 hours. Had a little trouble sometimes pulling the handle and getting it to center the prop for pulling it out. but all in all a great motor.
