I've lived with two different boats over the past 20+ years with Martec folders. While backing is not their strong suit, I've got no complaints. Generally giving a short burst of reverse gets the boat backing fine. Are you getting vibrations (means blades aren't opening fully)? Martec folders do need to be reconditioned periodically due to wear in the pivot pin area. Cost is in the $200 area.
