    Sx smart trim tabs
    by Bob from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia on May 29, 2013
    To say that I am pleased with this product would be an under statement. The change in my boats performance as it relates to getting to plane and low speed steering has been remarkable. 4.3 merc, 18.5 bowrider. Hole shot with almost no bow rise, great visibility and super quick to plane.......more than advertised by the manufacturer. Could not be happier with this product.

    Easy installation
    by Blayne from Traer, Iowa on May 15, 2013
    Received these last night and they were a breeze to install. Had them installed in less than 1/2hr on a 95 Mariah Z202 Bowrider. Look forward to getting the boat in the water to see the difference. I will write another review once I get some time on these. Thanks Iboats, you're price beat out many competitors!

    Works So Well Should be Standard Equipment!
    by Mark from Tampa, Florida on May 05, 2013
    After installing Smart Tabs, my 2005 Chaparral Sunesta 210 practically jumps out of the water. No more sluggish acceleration, no more sharp bow rise. My boat also handles better in choppy seas. Chine walk is greatly reduced also. By far the best money I've ever spent on my boat. Buy them!

    Great Product
    by Scott from Fort Worth, Texas on September 05, 2012
    Using this on a 18' SeaRay Sport the piston that came with the tabs are too stiff, working with Smart Tab to get the right piston. EZ to install and nice and simple.

    NO more low speed wander!
    by Curtis from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin on June 25, 2012
    I know v-hulled boats are famous for low speed wander. I hate that. The smart tabs got rid of it completely on my 20' Sea Ray Seville! I know that's not their main purpose, but it is my favorite feature! They also have done exactly what they are supposed to do. Less bow rise when taking off, plane out at a lower speed and quicker from a start. Fantastic product, and really easy to install.

    Made a huge difference
    by James from Macomb, Illinois on June 06, 2012
    These tabs made a huge difference on my boat! It gets on plane at a lower speed and bow rise upon takeoff is pretty much eliminated. Also, I no longer get chine walk at high speeds. I ordered the 80 pound actuators (per the selection info from Nauticus), but they are too much for my boat. Nauticus is replacing them at no cost with 60 pound actuators. (They also were extremely helpful as I was installing them, responding to email questions very quickly and sending me photos to help with the installation.) Great product and outstanding customer support! A very good value for the money.

    Works fantastic on my Chaparral
    by a Customer from Ridgewood, New Jersey on April 21, 2011
    I have a 2005 21' Chaparral and wanted to get a little more performance out of the boat on the hole shot. I did some research and found some amazing claims on the iboats' forums. I took the plunge and ordered these Smart Tab. The really do work as advertised and I could not be more pleased. Install was pretty simple and they look OEM. I would recommend to my friends. Wayne

    Manufacturer's Response:
    by a Customer on April 08, 2011

    During the manufacturing process we found that there were design issues with the SX9510 series of Smart Tabs in early production. This was primarily noticed on boats with deep V type hulls, V8 power, and boats capable of speeds in excess of 55 mph. In all cases we provided replacements (of new design) to the consumer at no charge.

    The specific change since the introduction are the Tab plate hinge bosses, tab plate ribs, Hinge plate bosses, and replacement of the Spread and Lock hinge pins with nylon bolts and lock nuts. Since these changes have been made, the rate of warrantee claims has been reduced to less than 2% which includes product returns of all types. In some cases the returned product was never used.

    In summery, we are confident that all of the issues with the SX series have been resolved. We are always looking to improve product quality and consumer satisfaction. We guarantee our products 100% or your money back

    Best Regards,

    John E. DeAgro
