    Best investment
    I bought this a month ago and it is one of the best investments I have made for my boats. I wasn't sure about the installation, easy install. Well worth the price. If you own a trolling motor and you still have the original rope that came on it. You should replace with the TH G-Force Trolling Motor replacement handle and cable. Academy Sports is the place to buy. Very reasonable price, you won't find a better price

    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.

    Great product!
    I bought this trolling motor a couple of weeks ago. Ordered it on a Sunday night and it was at my door 2 days later! Mounting was easy. I had an older Minn Kota freshwater bow mount, and the holes matched up perfect with this new mount. I have an 18' aluminum bay boat and we used the new Riptide all day (10 hours) out on the lake and still had 30% battery left for the trolling motor. The 55lb thrust had no problem pulling my boat around the lake. No issues at all. Great product!

    Great trolling motor
    I bought this 3 months ago and like it. The only downfall is the screw in the head unit keeps shearing off. I have replaced the screw and nut 4 times in just the past year alone. You have to disconnect the TM if you are going into heavy chop. Then put it back on when your at your fishing destination.

    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.

    Terrible Instructions
    Terrible instructions. Wiring diagram was missing. Pros: Reliable motor Cons: Terrible instructions / Missing Wiring Diagram Bracket Support that keeps the transom mount from beating up your boat. Is the worst design I have ever seen on a trolling motor. Minn Kota is an old company with apparently old technologies. I have also owned the 110# Ipolit. It was a big disappointment to me as well.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect for my boat.
    The local store did not stock the 42 inch shaft, but the staff placed the order for me in the store. It was shipped at no charge to my home and was received on the third business day. The install was easy and it is plenty strong for my Carolina Skiff JV 15.

    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.
