View Full Version : Trolling motor opinions?

02-23-2007, 07:16 PM
I am having some trouble deciding on a new trolling motor. I fish a Tracker 175 and currently have the Motorguide 4300 43 pound thrust that came on the boat. It is not the most quiet thing in the world and rocks and knocks alot. I am looking to stay with 12 volt setup. I am looking at either a Minnkota PowerDrive V2 55 pound thrust with the movable foot control with the long cable attached, or a Motorguide wireless 55 pound thrust. They are roughly the same price. Does anyone have any experience with or opinions about either or both of these? I am open to suggestions.

I have a customer that has a brand new 55 pound maxxum for sale. It has been in the water only two times. The reason he is selling is because this motor is too small for his boat. He is going to get a much bigger motor with a 24 volt system. The 55# maxxum sells for $699.99. He will take $575.00 for it. And it still has a 3 year warranty with it.
