Minn Kota® Endura™ Max Transom-Mount Trolling Motors
Good as ever
I have owned Minn Kota trolling motors for many years. This motor continues a tradition of easy to use ultra reliable operation. Great features for a fair price.

Big step up.
I have had 3 Minn Kota's over the last 20 years of fishing and one motor guide. The unbreakable shaft and weedless wedge prop are both superior to the motor guide's metal shaft and machete prop. The addition of infinite speed control is amazing in both boat control and battery life!
First the unbreakable shaft saves you from careless mistakes on the river or lake. The two bladed power wedge and weedless wedge turn at slower rpm's than the motor guide, they are both quieter and more responsive. I rarely have weeds build up in the prop.
The variable speed control is amazing. Being able to hold my 14ft jon in the wind, or creep along the bank at the pace I want are great. The best is that after 3hrs of fishing on my sub divisions 75 acre lake I still have 75% battery left. I can go out in the morning and afternoon without recharging.
The only issue I have had with the motor were my fault. I didn't check the prop shaft for line built up and somehow broke the shear pin. Overall the best motor I have ever had.

I bought the Endura Max 55 with the 42 inch shaft to install on the front of my 16 foot Starcraft. It was simple to remove the screw to turn the head around in order to operate from the bow. It zips my boat around no problem, and the variable speed control is a welcome addition. The battery lasts forever, and the motor does exactly what I need. Plus, I didn't have to spend a fortune for a foot control, and as long as you keep the steering friction tight, the motor keeps you right on track.

Powerful and Quiet
Purchased the 55LB model for my 14FT boat. Very quiet and energy efficient. Lasts on one battery much longer than other Minn Kota models. The varied speed control really helps out on the water rather than the 5-Speed dial system. Very durable as well.
