Just saw on the Garmin website the new trolling motor is for sale for 3100 bucks. Wow


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Yup, and I believe I read somewhere the new Lowrance trolling motor has an MSRP of 3600.

Said to be $3k also, but with the nose cone transducers I suppose it could get up there in price. I donít think any of these will be sold at msrp though. I bet they are around $2,500.

The best thing that could ever happen, is nobody buys [censored]! Then the prices will quit climbing faster than a spider monkey. But, as long as we keep shelling out quid after quid....itís only gonna get crazier.

Well. Being as service centers donít ask for receipts, and only go by the serial numbers built date code, Iím not sure that a previously owned Ultrex wouldnít be covered. Just sayin

I have been waiting to see what they and Lowrance are going to offer. I just about ordered an Ultrex a couple of months ago but figured as sure as I did someone would come out with something that would make me unsatisfied with my purchase!

There is always going to be something newer and better but I donít want it coming out weeks after I spent $2500!

I think youíre good with your purchase. It doesnít seem that either of the new ones ďone upĒ the Ultrex ...except on price. Lol.

Over $3K for a trolling motor is asinine!!!!!

True. By the time folks are able to get the Garmin or Lowrance trolling motors, there will be motors that are 3+ years old.

You think? I bet they are out by late fall. I also donít see them being nearly the impact maker that the Ultrex was. I would be willing to bet that Lowrance and Garmins new units are gonna fight each other for a VERY small percentage of the high end trolling motor market.

Now, if the Lowrance unit was comparable to MKs pricing, Iíd just about sign up. But, at almost a $800 increase in price, Iíll opt to buy a Fortrex to have as a backup to my Ultrex. It only takes 3 minutes to pop a Fortex onto an Ultrex mount.
