Big Foot Trolling Motor Foot Switch
Disappointed in quality
I have used big foot switches for many years. This past month I installed 3 brand new switches. In the intervening few weeks, and with no more than 40 hours of use I am unable to put the switch in constant run position.
this has resulted from the switch cover flap breaking. The company has either changed the material of the flap or the quality control is very bad.
would not recommend until company fixes problem.

I have been using these switches for years to control manual trolling motors. They hold up well in salt applications and are cheap enough to replace if they happen to break. Just added a second switch to my casting platform so that I don't have to bend over constantly to turn the motor on and off. Just set the speed, and use the foot switch and an extension handle on the trolling motor to work a shoreline.
Much better setup than trolling motor with remote control, your hands are free to fish without messing with a remote all the time.

I have used a bigfoot switch for years, and actively sought this one (my third) when #2 began to run hot and get balky after three years of regular salt water use. The trolling motor is my only propulsion on a fishing kayak, so it probably sees 100-200 ons and offs per session. Bass Pro was by far the best buy, about 2/3rds the price of some other sources.

As a full time fishing guide, I have found these switches to out last all others.. I have used them for years, And will continue to use these on my boat...
