Zero Off single antenna vs. dual antenna
So what are the differences between the dual and single puck? Do you notice a difference when skiing behind them? If so what do you notice?
Ski it if you can!!!!
Stir vigorously then leave!
From the article
“The single puck makes for a faster reaction time. It’s the only thing talking to the engine and the engine doesn’t have a second puck to communicate with, so the reaction time is going to be much greater.”
hmm..... sort of splitting hairs but ....
The part about reaction time may very well be true. But the puck's themselves aren't on the CAN bus. The pucks communicate to the Zero Off head unit via RS232 connections and the Zero Off head unit is on the CAN bus and communicates to the Engine ECM.....
My nautique 196 has the 2 puck ZO. I ski A2+ on my 196. Have the opportunity to ski at Swiss Ski School behind the 2017 Masters 6.2 liter single puck boat and I run A2. The pull from the single puck system feels slightly firmer, but that could also be the 6.2 liter vs. my 5.7 liter. On A2+, the 6.2 liter single puck does feel firmer.
