Default Trim tabs

What kind of trim tabs do you perfer. I installed Bennett on last boat, but hear Lenco has come a long way. I have a 2300SC, what size do I get?

Thanks,
Shep

I'd probably stick to bennett's...they have a great customer service approach and stand by their products ....

I just added the auto trim tabs unit's...let me tell you they are awesome.....
for me well worth the price tag for the trim tabs...for a 23 ft boat..I'd probably go with the small ones...

How does the auto trim work with changing sea states, wakeboarding and people moving around in the boat? Does it start with a baseline and just try and maintain. Can you manually set them also?

they splice into the ship's wiring...then what happens is as you say idle out of a no wake zone..you set the trim tabs to where you want the boat to settle...or while on plane trim the boat out stbd to port/fwd to aft...engage the auto trim tab......from there the boat changes the trim tabs to any changes like when someone moves to port from stbd....or the wind changes trim..the tabs will automatically adjust to re trim the boat back.....so far I'm tickled pink with them...
