by CrackerboysBassClub Better for your back than foot control.
I have used this trolling motor for the past 5-6 years. I use to use a foot control until the constant steering started hurting my loser back from using 1 foot all the time. Foot control is not good for your balance either if you need that quick hookset.
I would however, recommend the extended hanle (not the one that goes on the handle). The shaft mounted, ajustable handle. This makes it easy to adjust and you will keep your balance with no back problems.

by TeamAdcahb One tough trolling motor...
I've been trying to kill this motor for over a year now and it won't die! I can't wait to get the new wireless Motorguide but until then this is one tough trolling motor.

I have used both Mototguide and Minn Kota and I prefer Motorguide hands down. Runs great, doesnt drain the battery and rolls nicely through weeds. I can use this all day with minimal hangups. Allows me to cover a lot of water fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BDilling 5 times in shop in one year
When it works it is nice. In one year on a Fla river it has failed 5 times. I have had to ship it from St. Pete to Lakeland for repair and even though Mercury was called and they said they would reimburse the shipping, they have not done so. If a weed wraps around the prop, the unit fails. I don't know if I have the cursed one but if I had a choice I would buy the Minn Kota that my fishing buddy on the river has as it seems to handle weeds and grass w/o the problems.
