Ironwood Pacific HelmsMate 17''-23'' Extendable Trolling Motor Handle 4.9 5 10 10
PERFECTION BEEN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOR SOME TIME.OTHERS TO COSTLY .WORKS PERFECTLY ON MY MINNOKOTA 40 LBS THRUST. DOESNT SLIP .PERFECT LENGTH.90% of steering done with knee's.. May 22, 2008
Great fit I purchased the 17"-23" extendable trolling motor handle and in my case works perfectly on my MotorGuide VariMax 24 volt trolling with the pontoon mount. I have 2' of free space in front of my aluminum retaining area of the pontoon and from my swivel seat behind that area would make it difficult to reach the handle even though it is in itself extendable. The Helmsmate makes up the difference where I can sit on the seat and still drive the pontoon. The handle comes with a rubber insert about 5-6" long; I did not need it and the handle, after tightening the door knob-like device, stays in place and performs very well with all the maneuvering, forward, backward, turning, speed, and stopping. I'm very satified with the Helmsmate handle. November 9, 2010
super great tool We use this on our new Motor Guide trolling motor - fits great (REALLY EASY TO ATTACH), absolutely necessary for where we mounted the trolling motor. I have only 1 very minor complaint. when you extend the handle, at times you miss the hole and the extension comes completely out of the shaft. Since I extend it before we start fishing, it's not a huge deal. Have not had it long enough to rate the durability May 22, 2013
extendable tiller got my extendable trolling motor handle and it works great. I use it with my trolling motor that is mounted on the stern of my 15 ' canoe. It gives me the freedom to have the handle at my side rather than having to twist around and reach my short trolling motor handle. Works well on my 6 year old Minnekota motor. July 23, 2012

A: 
If your VariMax is similar to a 75# thrust then it will fit, just remove the rubber insert. At BPS I have seen hinged handles but the reviews say the hinged area is too loose and when one is not holding it the handle falls, does not stay at the height desired. Hope this helps

A: 
It will. The clamp is lined with a rubber insert. It can be removed if needed and the marine grade nylon clamp can be pulled open to accommodate larger diameter handles. For smaller diameter handles, Ironwood will provide, on request, a second piece of sleeve that can be used to attain a solid fit. While it was designed for the 15hp and under gas, and electric trolling motors, I'm not aware of a tiller outboard or electric trolling motor that it won't fit.

A: 
I unfortunatly did not measure the size of the Helmsmate handle but it did fit my VariMax 24 volt 75# thrust throlling motor existing handle. I would compare your mercury handle to a VariMax motor handle and go from there. The Helmsmate handle has a rubber insert, comes out easily, that I did not need on my VariMax. Hope this helps.
