I tested one of these motors for Minn Kota and let me tell you it's the best trolling motor I've ever used in my 20 plus years in professional fishing. It definitely makes your day of fishing easier and helps you catch more fish with less effort. If you're serious about fishing you will definitely want to purchase one of these trolling motors.
I only wish that they would incorporate a DI/2D transducer into the motor to eliminate the need to zip tie the transducer cable up the shaft.
Tell us Gary, can you at least zip tie a transducer cable to the trolling motor shaft on this new model or will it be loose like the competitor motors? Does it have two GPS antennas to allow the anchor feature to hold as good as the competitor motors?
I ask this question as the crappie fisherman have been looking for a motor with anchor feature "spot lock" to hold them and keep them over the brush ect. The current i-Pilot works fine for the sand bass, hybrid and black bass fisherman as it wonders about but is horrible for crappie fishing. The MotorGuide Xi5 motor with anchor holds the crappie fisherman very well over there brush pile with no wondering.
Congrats on the Welsh Win.
