I'm wondering if someone could help here. I am in the market for a Scotty, I want either to New Newport 2.5 or last years model 1.5. In every forum i have searched on the two, people say the 2.5 has more offset. Yet on the specs it shows the 1.5 to have a 3/4 shaft offset and the 2.5 to only have a 1/2 shaft offset. I can see that the 1.5 has a little more rounded bumpers than the 2.5 but can someone please verify the difference in the offset for me? I have gamed an orignal png Anser 4 for the last 15 years and i like as little offset as possible. Thanks for the help.
