Platinum Diehard are Great batteries. High amp hour. You can run your trolling motor all day on them. Pretty pricey and heavy are the only two drawbacks.

I have a buddy who won't run anything but Sear's batteries because of the 3 year warranty. Walk in with the bad battery, walk out with a new one.


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Over the past 30 years old bass fishing, I have tried many different brands and switched to Sears three years ago. I run three Diehard marine batteries for my TM and one Sears Platnum 31 series as my main battery.

They are heavy, especially the Platnum. The first Platnum I bought only lasted about 8 months but Sears replaced it free without any hassle. Since then, no issues with the replacement. Very powerful battery.

The Diehard deep cycles have been trouble free so far. I just took them all in two weeks to be tested and all tested fine.

Based on my experience, I would rate them amount the top brands.

Great battery! Had one in my old boat for starting, electronics AND my third (36V TM) trolling motor battery. Never had a problem in the two years I owned it. Sold the boat (to a buddy) 6 months ago and is still going strong.

As soon as they go on sale, I'll replace the starting/electronics battery in my new to me 2012 BassCat with one.
