    worth every dollar
    I have a 14ft jon boat with a 5 horse Mercury, battery and gear. this trolling motor pushes me around just fine. I have a marine battery and have never come close to pulling a charge. I have owned this motor for a year now and use it once to twice a week.I did get into some thick hydrilla and tried to go through with the motor and it blew a fuse,but the hydrilla was so thick that it was unreasonable to think the trolling motor could make it. it is good to know it has protective capacities.I have ... read more hit some stomps with the blade and she is still intact and with me.

    Gets kayak up on plane!
    Ok, that's not exactly true.....but it does a very good job of pushing my, uhm, "large" frame around in my kayak. Good on power usage. A fully charged battery seems to last all day. Best trolling motor I have found for under $100.

    Excellent Product
    Easy to install and easy on your back raising and lowering your trolling motor. It's worth every penny and worth the piece of mind that it's not going to break. Highly recommend this product.

    Perfectly satisfied.
    Puchased about a month ago. This is the hand tiller model. Using it on a lightly modified Lowe 14 foot Jon boat. (aka a "bateau" where I come from). Courteous and professional customer service department in regards to sales. (No issues with the motor, so haven't had a need to call them back) Motor shipped promptly, packaging complete and intact. Felt like Christmas in May. Battery drain much lower than expected.

    Good Value Motor
    Purchased for a 1756 jon boat. Plenty enough power for light fishing. No issues yet. Love the flexible composite shaft on this motor. Good value and if it lasts a few years worth the money.

    Tough little troller
    This was definitely a great buy. This motor keeps going and is tougher than I expected. As much as I already used it, it keeps going and going, this was a great buy and great fit for my use. I use it to move my 12ft v hull boat around the lake, and it's been perfect.

    Good power
    Motor runs good and seems well built. The only thing I don't like about it is the control feeling. It does not have a crisp feeling going from one speed to the next. It is sometimes in between a couple speeds and of course does not run while in that position. I have learned to handle it but would be a 5 star if the control was better.

    Minn Kota or motorguide ?
    First of all academy sports is wonderful they help me order my trolling motor right on the spot. In fact they did all the work for me. It was delivered by fed ex in two day! Ya FedEx. Now the product. I have used motor guide for years but I wanted to try a minn Kota. I love the performance of the minn Kota. In strong and quite A+. The things I didn't know was the difference between the two brands. The mounting and the wiring are different. At least for my bass cat boat. Plus the mk is full time ... read more 24v Which works just fine with me. Wasn't a big problem but took a little more time to install. The other big difference is. The controls are switched around To opposite sides. Will take a little time to get used to. I still like the Motor. Work great and looks great. I believe I'm going to like it better than the motorguide. Don't catch em all. Lunker Larmon.

    Minn Kota Edge 70
    This is a great trolling motor. I replaced my Minn Kota 45 with it, the great thing is all I did was add a 2nd battery for 24 volts and unscrew the hinge door, removed the 45 and put in the 70. It took all of 15 minutes to change out.

    Good motor
    I bought this and put on one of my boats. Powerful motor that steers easy. 45 inches was a bit long for my boat, I wish I had purchased 36". I bought this online and it shipped to my house within a couple days freight free.

    Upgraded to this model
    Finally decided to upgrade my 1976 bow mount, foot control trolling motor with 14# of thrust to this unit. WOW, what a difference. Mounting was easy and the unit works great. Foot controls are easy to operate and easy to use.

    Serves it purpose
    Installed this on a Minn Kota edge 45/45 bow mount hand control. Serves it purpose. Did fall off a few times and had no more adjustment on the tightening knob. Solved this problem by wrapping the handle of the motor with some electrical tape to make it bigger since I didn't plan on removing it.

    Don't know why I didn't buy this sooner. It is much better than the cheaper brands and it durable as heck. The fit is perfect for my trolling motor and the tightening knob is quality made. It makes steering my jon boat a breeze now

    Not too big, not too small!
    I just returned from an outing with friends at a private lake and our host was having troll motor problems. We decided to get him a new one in appreciation of him putting up with us. I checked my email and lo and behold, there was one from Academy with this troll motor on sale for one day only. I had researched this motor with another friend and he bought this one and was completely satisfied with performance and features. The special price was too good to believe, so I ordered 2 that were in my ... read more hands in 4 days. Thanks again, Academy.

    R3-45 MotorGuide---a GREAT Trolling Motor!!
    I am so happy I bought this trolling motor. It has more than enough power to move, and I do mean MOVE my home made 15' Heavy Duty Aluminum Boat along the water. I reversed the head and mounted it on the bow. We used it intermittently most of the day and when I got home, my battery had lots of juice to spare---this is a well designed motor. The 5 forward speeds give the boater options based on need, and the 2 reverse speeds are sufficient to back you up quick should the need arise. I was able to ... read more slide the shaft up or down with ease to adjust the depth of the motor in the water for the right sweet spot for my particular boat. The wide mounting bracket and adjusting screws are heavy duty and well made. I placed the order and as usual Academy did their part and I had it in short order. Their shipping service is excellent--always offering tracking when needed. Their service is second to none. I love Academy---and I love this R3-45 MotorGuide Trolling Motor as well---you will too!

    Minn Kota 80lb Trolling Motor
    Great brand name trolling motor, easy to install, great features with reverse and expandable handle so do noTneed an extension. Came with enough wire with ends to hook up direct to battery without having to install a plug. Best price too.

    Smokin Hot
    This thing will do whatever ya need it to do like a 36v, but without the extra weight of a third battery.

    So far works great on my 17' express. And the fish finder was a bonus for my dad's duck boat. Best value around!

    Solid trolling motor
    This is an exceptional trolling motor. You will notice that the shaft is aluminum and fiberglass. This way when you go through heavy chop it does not shear bolts off like the competitors trolling motors do.

    An asome Mtr very easy to operate makes casting very convenient!

    Does the job
    Biggest issue is attaching it to the boat. Easiest to attach when it is about 50-75% inflated. Handles my minnkota C2 50 well. I looked into making a motor mount but the cost was going to be more than it was worth.

    Really enhanced the capability of my MG SW82.
    I bought this a couple weeks ago, hoping to get through some thick grass mats here in South Louisiana. This blade is far superior to the standard weedless 2 blade MG prop.
