I presently have a 2015 Outback with the standard Mirage Drive system that is not reversible but am considering purchasing a 180 Mirage system to use with my 2015 Outback. My thought is that when hooked into a larger fish, I will be able to slap it into reverse and back away from mangroves rather than getting pulled into the mangroves and losing more fish than I can remember. Anyone out there have experience with the 180 system that they can share?

Only thing I have heard, is they were initially having breakage problems with the cable control, that switches it from fwd. to reverse. Not sure if they have an upgrade kit for existing units, should you find a used one. All the new ones should have been upgraded.
