Rated 1 out of 5 by RickV Never again I have always bought Bass Pro equipment and usually found their fishing and boating products to be as good as the name brands. However I bought this trolling motor last spring and it seemed to work great. Seemed is the key word. Last few times out in runs great in first two speeds but jumps and bucks in the two higher speeds. 3rd speed is hit or miss. Last few times out I was trying to fish in some wind and could not keep my boat anywhere I wanted to be. I did not have the power needed in low speeds and 4 & 5 would not run but about a minute before they would go out. I may buy Bass Pro fishing equipment, rods, line and lures, but my Bass Pro days for big ticket items is over. March 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by sazfishing nice trolling motor The trolling motor has nice features. When my son and I went out the first time it preformed very well in windy conditions. The motor pushed my 14 foot boat right along with no problems. September 28, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by TRAILBLAZER1 Not BAD!@ Great price,,,tons,a power,,,A little louder then id expected but still not as bad as some iv seen before. Used off and on all day last week and when recharging bat the next day it still had 90% power left=GREAT! Strong mount and shaft. No manual or instructions in box,,,WHY? Still a great product SCOTT September 5, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jayb300 Good product, good value. The motor has great power and is quiet. Little vibration at full trottle, spun prop 180 degrees and a bit better. Only real dislikes are the tilt can't stay unlocked so it will fold up if an object is hit, and the battery life readout says 7 with full charged brand new deep cycle, and 5 when batt is nearly dead. The book doesn't tell you what this means. It's not voltage because I checked with DVOM..... Not as useful as I was hoping. Over all, pushes a 14' alum boat with 3 guys and beer around all day on one battery (interstate SRM-27). August 12, 2011

A:Meter goes 0 to 8. 8 is fully charged battery. Depending on the battery, you can run as little as 2 hours at full speed or 6hrs at full speed
Details:There is a plastic sleeve on the shaft on the upper end of the clamp along with a piece of spring steel that tightens on the shaft to control the tension for steering. Both of those pieces are missing from my motor. Have used it twice and noticed they were gone.
Details:21ft pontoon. I'm wanting to know if the shaft is long enough for a pontoon. Gift for hubby and I have no idea if it will work. He only fishes a few times a year so minimal use.

A:Yes. Go with the 55# thrust model with the 42" shaft. This is the most powerful model you can buy that will run off a single marine battery, and the longer shaft should be plenty to reach down into the water from a pontoon. Hope he likes it!
Details:Can different size shafts be ordered for this trolling motor? We need it to mount up on a bowfishing deck, but reach the water. The length it is, won't work.
Details:I bought a separate Maximizer several years ago and would like to use it ti extend battery life.
Details:I have a 12.6' SeaEagle sport runabout inflatable that I'm going to use for fishing smaller AZ lakes. I am looking at the Traxxis variable speed 36-inch with 55lbs of thrust. Is it worth the extra $200 to get that one or is this BPS Prowler the better option? Any insight is definitely appreciated!
