Well dad wants a new trolling motor for our champion for his Christmas. The boat is a 223 elite soooo the question is which model of minn Kota is the best for the money with I pilot. And what size do y’all suggest, currently it’s an old 73lb motorguide.

24V = Ultrex 80# had this on my 18'
36V = Ultrex 112# put this on my current 21'

Outside chart/SI, most useful equipment on the boat.

The champs need the 52” shaft for sure, just installed the 112lb 52” Ultrex on my 203 and it is golden. I mean if y’all are rocking the 22’ boat I would definitely say get the 112.

Champs sit up kinda high and catch a lot of wind. Get the biggest TM you can afford. You can always dial it back.

I’ve got a 112# Ultrex on my 19’ Nitro and I’m glad I have it. 52” shaft would have come in handy at times in high wind. Also, I have i-pilot but not link. Didn’t feel the need for the additional HB equipment. Still don’t feel any different since I’ve had the Ultrex.

I installed the 36 volt Ultrex on my Phoenix Friday. Heading to the lake soon to try it. I got the 52” shaft.
