I have a Minn Kota Fortrex.
I don't want to replace it with Factory Rope...
Who makes the Best P/Rope now?

Thanks,
Nitro Man

You make the best trolling motor pull rope(with steel cable)! I'm assuming Curtbass is probably talking about the same thing. The link below gives you the how-to for under $10.

Yessir. Plastic coated cable with the collar clamp hex head pinch. Save the ones off your old one.

+another. Broke several ropes on my MinnKotas. I have steel cable on Motorguide Great White. Just wish I had a good way to secure the handle.

I had TRIED the "Pro Cord" one, Cable diameter isn't very big tho.
Worked fine until the Coating came Off the Cable...Cable ATE Into the T/Mtr. housing.
Now I haft to Replace the Housing before putting on a new Cable.

IS there a certain SIZE and Type/Name of Cable I need to buy?!?

I know it's Not that difficult to do...I just want to get the RIGHT Stuff the 1st time!!!

Thanks guys!
Nitro Man

Found a handle on Amazon...

Amazon also has vinyl coated stainless cable.
