I would suggest you test drive them and see which one you like best. I have the gator tail because I like the instant reverse. The type of boat you will be putting it on will make a difference also

I have a Mud Buddy Hyper Drive.
Before I bought mine I have been running long tails for at least a dozen years. 90% of my boat running experiences is with out Reverse. I an so use to parking so that I don't need reverse I decide it was not worth the added weight. I wanted lighter and power trim. I have not looked at these motors in 4 years or so, so I am not sure who all offers power trim but I WOULD NEVER buy one with out it.

I use power trim every trip no matter if I am by myself or have 3 people wi

pro-drive works for me.full power reverse. dont let nobody fool ya and tell ya , ya dont need reverse. at one time or another they wished that they had it. gator tail is also good.

ive used them all. mainly go-devil, mud buddy and gator trax. if you dont realise how much power they have a (35hp) go devil will hurt you. go with mud buddy or gator trax.. then if you dont want to worry about having to drive somewhere far everytime something breaks then buy whats closest to you. i love a GTR but i can say it sucks when something breaks cause theyre two plus hours from where i live. ive had problems with single and duals. it really sucks when one breaks on the dual setup. i use them mainly for bowfishing or just to go tare shit up!!!

Prodrive
I own a prodrive and love it. The full power reverse is awesome. The only reason I didn't buy a gator tail is because it don't have full power reverse. I've been in situations were I would have been stuck for hours if not days if it was not for the Full Power Reverse.
P.S. it goes further in reverse in mud than almost any mud boat can in forward. It lifts the back of the boat up and slings mud and water under the boat allowing the boat to have less friction on top of mud.

mud motor?!
They all have thier ups and downs. We have three mud boats all with different motors. In the marsh or grassy areas the Pro drive and Gator tail are the ticket but in the swamp or stumpy areas the go devil dominates due to the balance and easy kick up. As far as speed they all run with in 2 to 3 mph of each other. And last but not least as far as maintenance the pro drive and gator tail has much more moving parts which have all left my buddies in a bind out on the water. The go devil has had 0 problems.

Prodrive
If u don't want to use a push pole anytime u back up, get a prodrive. The reverse on it sets it apart from all others. Take a look for yourself.

If u want speed, get a mudbuddy. They hotrod the motors and warranty them.
