    Really depends on the type of fishing you do. If you do more trolling/long lining/spider rigging than brush piles, I suggest the Terrova with I Pilot for controlling your speed and course/track. The Terrova is electric steer so the head responds a little slower than a cable steer one which can be frustrating when trying to fish a brush pile or shoot docks IMO, but you get use to it. Cruise control and anchor lock are nice features with the I Pilot as well. Well worth the $$, makes fishing a lot easier in most cases.
    GO BIG ORANGE !

    I meant to behave, but there were just way too many other options available at the time.

    I went ahead and got the riptide 80# with ipilot, and advanced autopilot. Comes with a remote and I went ahead and got the electric foot pedal.
    I think since my time on the water is limited I should have the best tool for the job for a quality trip when I go!

    Yep. I've kicked myself many times by waiting to get one. Makes trolling so much easier and less work. Get the foot control if you pad fish or close to the shore.

    I love my Ipilot. It makes trolling so much easier. Plus you get to wear a cool remote around you neck and it makes you look like Favor Flav the rapper. LOL.

    I agree with everyone else. I installed the terrova 2 years ago and it was well worth the money. Keep an eye on the minnkota website, they frequently have rebates this time of year.
