I had to rebuild mine. The web site keeps saying out of stock will notify when available. Unfortunately it been saying that for 6 months. I finally used my tube bender and built another handle like there. just out of 1 inch copper

Academy used to sell two ProKonTrol handles. One was a plastic and aluminum piece of junk for about $30 and the other was a high-quality, all-aluminum model that was around $130. The website says they are temporarily out of stock and I don't see the all-aluminum one on Academy's website. Someone else is bound to have them.

The first one gives a phone number to call and is the 360 degree steering. I do not know about the Academy one, if it is 360 degree steering or not. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

The $89.95 one is what I am calling a piece of junk. I was in some bad chop one day, the black plastic part that attaches to the trolling motor shaft snapped, and I wound up in the water. It never would clamp itself to the TM shaft securely either. It would constantly loosen up. The all-aluminum one is pricey but worth it.

http://prokontroll.com/ here is there web site. It has been saying that for over 6 months. I called every tackle shop on the first three pages of google to find a replacement. I finally just made a replacement part out of 1 inch k copper and a tube bender. I made the gasket out of seaboard. Works as good as new or even better.

I don't know where McKinney is but I'm in Austin and if you haven't found one you can have this one. I replaced mine with a foot control. I don't know how you guys do it.
