To IBR or not IBR
Considering buying a 3up at my local dealer. They have one in the color I want with IBR and without. The IBR is a 700 dollar option. So Should I or not get the reverse? Any comments on the actual use of IBR. Seriously going in reverse, I only had to use once on jetski, so is worth it?
The other question about IBR, does it support neutral? I use neutral on my jetboat and it's awesome for docking. Can't beat that.

I got it simply cause you cannot add it later and may help resale if i ever do sell it.
the braking im not concerned with but the reverse seems like it could be usefull

What are some of the cons of ibr?

personal choice I had reverse on my old Honda only time I used it was putting on the trailer it was useful then
I think just more to go wrong as safety using the brake I think changing course avoidance is better option.
I was thinking manual reverse for loading on the trailer but I think I will stay with manual loading due to the plastic haul don't want to take chance with running into the metal and putting a hole in it
Up to you what your needs are if you have cold water don't want to get in the water maybe a better option
