Stabilizer Upgrade Results?

I am considering upgrading my 2001 Wesmar fin stabilizers to the new and supposedly improved gyro and control systems. Has anyone on the forum made the upgrade? Even if it was with another brand I would appreciate hearing about the results as the technology is pretty common to most manufacturers. The system has been bulletproof so far but is starting to need some attention as both the gyro and solenoids have had recent issues.

I have the Datum digital control system from Naiad. It allows you to manually set it or simply press a button for the ďadaptiveĒ setting where the system senses the sea state and roll and automatically adjusts. I always use the adaptive setting and havenít had a problem.

Was your setup older with a recent upgrade? I have looked over the advertising but hope to find out if the upgrade is simple and effective or expensive and complicated.

No, my setup was a new installation.
