I'm experiencing steering torque. It's not unbearable, but not slight either. My (new to me) 150 outboard has no torque tab. What do you guys like best. I assume I'm not the only one. Still learning....little at a time.

Installing this will cut it in half. Sea Star hydraulic steering will make a big difference but won't eliminate all steering torque. Different props all affect steering torque as well. Normally a 4 blade prop has less torque than a 3
I just replaced my steering a couple of months ago. Hydraulic was too expensive so I went with no feedback cable and couldn't be happier. Easy steering with none of that feedback you are complaining about. If I need to let go of the steering wheel for a second, I know the boat will continue straight. I think at 150 you are probably right at that point where cable steer is still easy and cheaper. If you have the money then hydraulic. Get a torque tab.
