Anybody run a G-Force Prop Nut on their trolling motor? I dont have any complaints with my trolling motor now, but wondering if these make a noticeable difference or not. I realize most people will think they are waste of money and not necessary, but if you have one please let me know what you think about them. THanks,

I run one on mine, havent noticed a huge difference but will say it is really nice if you have to remove the prop while fishing to remove line or trash around your prop shaft. Instead of having to stop and get tools, just unscrew it, clean off trash and put back on....very convenient.

Not difference that is POSITIVE. it can actually mask a real problem and cause premature wear.

I'd avoid the gimmick.

the vibration and noise is a poorly aligned housing, bent shaft, or an unbalanced prop. "Not hearing" the noises doesn't make the excessive wear and tear go away.

Just saying.

This was my thought too, even if it didnt improve the motor it would make checking the prop for line, etc. a little easier. I never check the TM for line because I never think about it once I am home.

Honestly, I think they do help a little. I feel it cuts down the vibration, but I wouldn't say it makes your TM more quiet. In the end I guess it's worth the money.

No the noise was what I think is normal on high, and don't think it's as noisy now. But sure you know better. Just saying.

Don't worry about Steez. He's just mad because he has a Motor Guide. grin

I don't see how it can cause any abnormal wear and tear. I didn't notice any difference/reduction in noise or vibration. Just think of it as a cool accessory.

I like mine....less vibration on my junky Maxxum 101 and it makes checking for line quick and simple.

I got my prop nut free using my bass pro points and I am less than impressed. Maybe my tm was perfect from the get go, but it has done nothing to make any difference.

Now my buddy swears that his makes his batteries last longer and is a lot quieter, he might just be trying to justify having spent $50 on it though.
