Im thinking about putting a tray in my boat for the foot control because ive heard it helps with ur legs and back to not be sore after a long day of fishing. Just not sure on what is the best one to get and to look for, Im guessing they have plastic and aluminum ones, I would rather have a aluminum I think. Thanks

I put a Troll-Eze in my boat last fall. After you get over cutting a humungous hole in your boat, it was really easy. I would highly recommend it. Much improvement on my back and knees after installing it!!

It's a must have. I got mine from Black Bear Sports. They had them for $60, don't know if they still do. I looked and measured and measured and measured. Out came the saw and away I went. It was a big hole but it's all filled in and I love it.

I have one and noticed something this weekend fishing in all that rain. It looks like it doesn't have any way for the water to drain out. I kept splashing water out with my wands so it wouldn't fill up and mess up anything electrical in the pedal. I'm scared to just drill a hole in the bottom of it but I guess it would just drain out

I just bought the Troll Well fiberglass version. I have not cut the whole yet, template looks huge. But the tray looks to be very well made.

I put a Comfortroll in my other boat. It is made of aluminum & is very sturdy. It does help a lot but it won't eliminate all the strain like others will have you believe. You still have to put a little more pressure on one leg than the other or you will still be putting a lot of weight on the pedal. It was still worth it. This one comes in 6 six different colors. I have several photos if you decide to take the plunge & would like to see them. The hardest part is getting the nerve to cut such a big hole in the deck. Once you make the first cut, it's not too bad because there is no turning back.
Here is a link to their site. http://comfortroll.com/COLOR_OPTIONS.html

Im sure you can just drill a 3/8" hole in it to keep it from filling up, but I was looking at it and it looks like it already has a hole and a barb so you can put a hose on it so it wont just drain in the bottom of the hull. I think Ima go with the troll eze, it seems like a good one and not too expensive, thanks for the help guys.

I'd never used them on my other boats but my Ranger came with it and it's awesome, it also helps unclutter the bow area. It has a hole in the tray that's fitted with a hose that feeds into the dry storage area underneath which then has a hole in the bottom for the hose to fit into. The only complaint I have is that it's made of metal and when it's wet your foot will slip on it. I'm going to buy some form of Line-X product to paint it and that should fix that problem.
