In-Fisherman Digital Editor Thomas Allen and IMTRA Zipwake Product Manager Jamie Simmons put a Caymas DV22 to the test with Zipwake's Dynamic Trim Control System installed and the difference in performance is incredible. This begs the question, are trim tabs a thing of the past? In this Zipwake review, we will cover why interceptors are better than trim tabs.
What are interceptors and how do they differ from trim tabs when running your boat?
Zipwake is the world's first economical trim control system, incorporating a state-of-the-art series of durable and fast-acting interceptors that eliminates the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats between 20-100 feet. The system is fully automatic and significantly enhances performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway.
Will interceptors improve hole shot?
Absolutely! If you've been wondering how to achieve the best hole shot possible on your boat, adding an automatic interceptor system will be one of the best ways to improve hole shot. The technology in the system will also adjust in real-time to every sway of the boat and wave you cross, making your boat run as level and true as possible all the time.
Should you buy an automatic boat roll control system?
The investment to get the very most out of your fishing boat's on-the-water performance is an easy one to make. With Zipwake, you will not only up performance but increase comfort for the driver and passengers. If you are considering adding the system to your boat, we would definitely recommend trying it out, especially if constantly fiddling with trim tabs is not your forte.
Will the Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control System work on my boat?
The Zipwake system has two available series: Series S, a product family designed for boats under 50 feet that includes four straight, four V-shaped, four chine and one intermediate interceptor and the Series E, a family of large, fast-acting interceptors that includes four straight, three tunnel and four chine models that are designed for boats up to 100 feet.
