    The Lowrance "Ghost" is an interesting concept. No rotating head. It appears as though they are once again targeting the bass market and leaving other markets further behind.

    I've learned my lesson long ago in regards to purchasing the latest new trend or product on the market. What seemed like 300 recalls later..... I'll wait a few years until all the kinks are hashed out and they make something that works for me!

    According to the Garmin rep I spoke to, the 57" is actually comparable in length to a 60 inch MK. It's all about how and where the shafts are measured. So based on his logic, the Garmin Force 50" will be closer to a 52-53 inch shaft.

    I will say I was very impressed with both the Lowrance and Garmin motors in functionality and build quality. The Lowrance GHOST did seem to have a very slight delay in motor movement vs pedal input. But I like the stationary head on the Lowrance. No cables to worry about winding or pinching.
