No Feedback Steering

I'm restoring one right now and I'm about to buy the steering gear.  I'm running a 140 Evinrude that has a single cable setup and Iím wondering if the new "Teleflex "No Feed Back" systems would allow me to get by with a single setup.  I know most people use dual but do you think this would work being a NFB unit?  I'm thinking I'll be reaching in the low 70mph range......any advice would be great. 

Thank You

Jason, 

    I have used the "No Feed Back" and it is horrible. When there is any torque on the wheel, the system locks up. Not what we would want on a boat like yours. Bite the bullet and buy the dual cable system, but NOT a "no feed back". A rack pinion system is preferred.
