It engages at tickover RPM. The gear cable moves its full extent (fwd and rev) before the throttle is actuated.

Exactly the point I made in an earlier post

Yeah, yeah, but where's the benefit of Matey Boy's two lever set-up?

I still don't see an advantage. If properly set-up, a single lever engages into gear at very little over tickover rpm and once engaged the loading drops the revs even lower. Whereas, with a two lever set-up there is the potential for banging into gear with a pile of revs on.

which seemed like you didn't know

It's all down to personal pref, I find them more precise to use and more responsive.

I have to say I really can't see one. Sorry JSP

Unless fiddling with two Knobs at once is what you like doing of course

Having used both systems I much prefer a single lever, but I suppose it is personal.

No problem nasher
Always wanted two knobs for extra pleasure

Like I say I like the set up but it's not to say I'll be doing it. Just floating ideas.

I can't see any benefit, unless he's running a jet drive.

Unless newer controls are different you push the single lever, it engages gear and then goes. With the twins your already in gear letting you blip the throttle.

If you're suggesting going into gear at more than tickover you'll have a smashed box very quickly.

You can do that with a single lever though
