Rated 3 out of 5 by bushwakt Not sure about the shock absorber
I bought this one because the shock absorber seemed like a good idea and because the transom saver that came with my brand new Tracker boat was about as cheap as they could go (rubber V that couldn't possibly hold the motor straight). In order to put enough pressure on the V (the part that holds the lower unit) to keep the motor from falling over to one side you almost have to trim it all the way down to where the shock absorber part is completely compressed. Kind of defeats the whole purpose.

Rated 2 out of 5 by utfisherman Life expectancy is 1 year
I have owned two of these over the last 10 years. After the first year, the internal spring works it's way past the retaining bolt and stops working. Upgrading to a much larger bolt helps, but does not stop the problem. Also, the rubber cups that are pop-riveted to the swivel arms will pop off easily if the unit is not properly aligned when installed. Treat the unit gently, do not trim down on it with any force, and stay off rough roads. Otherwise, find an alternate solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raybone good equipment
Bought this transom saver to replace the Bass Pro transom saver, which broke after one day.
This one will be cheaper in the long run.
Works great, supports well, holds my motor straight. Made in the USA.
My advice buy the Attwood
Using on Tracker Pro Team 190 w/125hp Optimax

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wkufootball68 Great product
I had just lost my transom saver a few days before Christmas when I got this one as a gift. It has done an excellent job. The only problem I incurred was the shaft being a little too lengthy, but all I had to do was remove the internal spring which gave me just enough clearance. Overall, great product!

you need to measure from the mounting point to the motor when tilted to where you want it, that will tell you how long to get..... DO NOT tilt your motor to far....8" farther back from the down potion should do it give or take
It comes with both the roller attachment and a bolt on trailer mount. I opted to use the roller attachment that fits around the rear roller and doesn't require you to bend over to remove. The bolt on piece has a place for a pin that you would have to remove.
all the savers work well, IF installed correctly, mount to trailer and keep as short as possible never have motor tilted way up, but need don preasure and not to long and they save the back of the boat and lower end from hitting the ground....
most likely not... but i have seen curved ones for that, also if you can mount the bracket in the back then it don't matter......next option is leave motor down if you have plenty of ground clearance then use a rachet strap from the trailer to the motor, you just don't want the motor to bounce up and down, can crack the tramson if you hit to many big pot holes
you'll have to measure the distance from the back roller or the trailer frame to decide the correct distance. The distance really has everything to do with where your specific boat sits on your trailer... and remember this transom saver won't do you a bit of good unless the stern is properly tied down to the trailer without any possibility of migrating or moving when you hit ANY size bump
