I am considering purchasing a wireless Kill switch. I would be interested in what you guys have thought of them as well as any thoughts you have about the different options

I have the autotether. It works fine, but looks kind of junky so I had it mounted inside the console and out of sight. I think the company Duane just recommended has a wristband for monitor, which I would prefer over the little plastic thing with a clip. Just seems more secure/less in the way. You are welcome to come check out the autotether on my boat, I can show you how it works, etc

I have autotether, but the new fell system looks much better. Had mine replaced once under warranty, and the current one repaired for almost the cost of a new one. This is over about a 5 year period. Have learned a couple tricks to improve longevity. But I will not repair or replace another autotether, I'll get fell or whatever system comes along that is even better.

I just got the fell system for xmas. Hoping to install soon and test it out. Use code BOATUS16 for a 30% off discount when purchasing thru the fell website. The product is listed on amazon but is more expensive and you can't get the discount

I had the Fell system installed on a new boat a couple of months ago.....very happy w/it. I'm in Wilmington if you want to come take a look at it.

I also have the autotether. It works good but like Chum said, it's ugly and the clip on sensor is kind of clumsy. I will probably replace with the Fell system.

Chum, how did you mount the autotether in the console since it needs to be connected to your kill switch that's normally next to the key switch?

I had kill switch placed inside console during build. Would have to move the kill switch otherwise, which would be more of a pain than its worth.
