Does slh do a change over on new yak dives for the slit difference? If so how much?

Being able to back out of trouble or trees is a real game changer.
The combination now is as close to perfect as to what I could ask for.
That being said, I have yet to try a Compass????
But there is no need at the moment........................ :D


Compass doesn't have the reverse you find so useful.


Just a matter of buying the 180 drive and it does.
Well past the edge, almost at the point of no return.

Yeah, you can buy a compass with a 180 drive in it if you want. Roughly $300 more.

Definitely worth the extra $300.
Especially for your estuary/bass work.
You will not regret getting the 180 drive.
