    Livescope pointer on Ultrex shaft???

    What are you guys using or making for a FFS pointer for an Ultrex? I seen pictures someplace that people are using HD zipties or some kinda hoseclamp with a metal stick with yellow tape on it.
    Seen some kinda deal on some of the MLF boats.
    Just looking for info on a DIY project cause im not going to pay $100+ for a gimmick that i can make for $5. It can either be a quick detach or permanent item.
    Any help or info would be greatly appreciated

    Not needed in the Ultrex. The shape of the head is good enough to aim with.

    If you can't figure out what direction an Ultrex is pointed, just add a pointer sticky to the top.

    I'm with the others, nothing needed for the Ultrex.....the head of the troller will tell you where it pointed unless something is not centered/aligned......

    I'm good with the Ultrex as-is; nothing else needed. The more you practice with it the better.
