    Default Wireless trolling motor suggestions or dont buy suggestions

    I just need the buy/don't buy real truth...
    Ive looked at all the web sights, I already know there engineered to Up sell ya. Freshwater
    I want is a Wireless trolling motor 12v 54" 55lb or more thrust, no sonar ect with foot pedal to use as option.
    Do not want to use my phone in any way to use it. because it will not be with me...
    Trolling for crappie ect, I don't need the #70 24v motor guide anymore and i'll save the weight.
    Its just an alum vt-19 and not trying to fish 20mph cold front..anymore..lol

    I have the 55 terrova I pilot with foot pedal. Love it. Pulls my 17 ware eagle just fine. More than satisfied with it. New spot lock would make it even better.

    Iíve got a MK powerdrive with ipilot. 12v 55Ē shaft. Comes with the remote on the lanyard. Has the option to use with phone if need be, but Iíve never used it. It also has the option to get the foot pedal, which I donít have. I got mine from Brian at BBG marine. Highly recommend working with him. Great guy, got me a good deal. Mention you are with crappie.com

    I’ve got the terrova 55 and really like it. I don’t troll but if I did I would sure have to have one. I bought the foot petal with mine but don’t like it (it’s electric). I use the remote with mine but you can connect your phone to it if you want.
    Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

    Thanks to all that will reply, its the real life reviews that make the difference. Not the reviews that companies can buy ect.
    I have 24v now. I wonder if 12v really cuts down on troll time. Ill buy the biggest 12v one sold , not a problem.
    I would use it maybe 6-8hours troll time a day..
    Can 12v handle that..? Thanks for any and all help...

    I have the same motor and would also highly recommend the spot lock i-Pilot is a must and a game changer. Saves a lot of stress

    I have the #80 24v terrova on my 1756 G3. With ipilot. Came with foot pedal, but never use it. If youíre wanting to stay with 24v. I couldnít tell the difference in weight when I upgraded.

    In a nut shell figure at best half the trolling time with 12v vs 24.....I'd never go from 24v down to 12v...especially if you have a 24v system already.
