I have a 14 summit 600 etec. I am wanting to do something different for a teather. The stupid stock key/tether sucks. Snow gets in it and then you have to deal with the beeping and such. Anyone have any suggestions? I like wearing it, I've had the sled start upside down more than once. Thanks.

Take advantage of your strong US dollar and invest in possibly the best tether system I have used so far...

I have been running this tether for 3 winters. To me it is the ultimate tether although I would not suggest it is for everyone.

There is some set up involved although less than a few mins once installed. The settings are all user programable. This is great as some people prefer more of a delay for items like the roll over switch or how fast it shuts down. The roll over switch is very important. No other tether that I know of offers it. If the sled is flipped over on you it will shut down.

We ride nothing but technical trees and having a corded tether is a nuisance. It will get caught in limbs or other things. The Phantom tether is also quicker than a cord. Once your sled is running and you throttle past the engagement point which is set by the user of your hand comes off the throttle grip the sled shuts down. When idling you can do whatever you like as its not active expect for the roll over.

I never worry about clipping something to me or if someone else jumps on my sled and so on. The learning curve is minor. You have to remember not to take your hand off the grip when the clutch is engaged or the sled will shut down. So wipe your goggles with your other hand lol.

The big negative is the price to most people but safety items with this amount of technology are not cheap to develop and manufacture.
