    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.

    Big enough
    I have an 8 foot Bass Hunter boat I use for small ponds and lakes. This motor moves it right along with me and my wife aboard. With battery and gear that's about a 350 lb. load. Top speed is plenty fast to get to the other side of the pond unless you're fishing a tournament on a large lake. I haven't needed to run it beyond the second speed except to see what it will do. I didn't buy a marine battery for it because I already had a small car battery sitting in the garage and killing the battery ... read more after a long day fishing has not been an issue. I highly recommend this motor for this type of boat.

    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.

    Poor design
    I bought this trolling motor early this spring. After using it three times, the bolt holding control head to the shaft wollered out the hole in the shaft. Disappointed, but not wanting to miss the use of the trolling motor, I removed the control head and cut off about 1" of the shaft, careful to not cut the wires. Reinstalled a new bolt with a nylon locking nut with Loctite and the next time I went out, the bolt broke. Took to dealer to warranty it and he did the exact same thing, only it took a ... read more week. Now I carry a screwdriver and tighten the bolt every time I put the boat in the water in addition to bungee cording it down to prevent it from flopping around on the water or trailer. The mount is kind of hard to disengage, but I would rather have it like that than loose and sloppy. The motor is adequate for my 17' aluminum CC. I would look at other models and brands to see how the head is mounted on the shaft before I would consider purchasing another.

    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.

    Same quality trolling motor
    I bought this to replace an 8 year old 36 lb thrust minnkota that finally quit working. New one is just as good - works the same and is great. I have been buying minnkota trolling motors for over 20 years and never been disappointed. Reasonable price as well. I fish at least 50 days a year so they get a good workout.

    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.

    Great features and performance
    I upgraded to the Minn Kota Edge 24 volt from the Minn Kota All Terrain 12 volt and am so glad I did! This motor will absolutely cut through tough winds. I no longer struggle to fish areas that constantly feature high winds, such as main body points and humps. It also allows me to fish in strong current with ease.

    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.

    Husband loved his new trolling motor!
    Bought this for my husband for Father's day and he loved it. Heavy duty, length of cords to foot pedal was extra long, easily reached the seat on his boat. Mounting to the boat was easy because of good directions provided.

    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.

    I purchased this item a month or so ago for my bass boat. Well I decided to sell my bass boat, and let it go with the boat, biggest mistake I ever made. I now, am finding myself buying another one, because I bought a Pontoon boat and this Trolling motor is amazing. Great product for the money!!!!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    Absolutly The Best Customer Service Department.
    While in the Kannapolis, NC I stopped in the Academy Sports store to purchase a Minn Kota Weedless Prop and when returned home in Greensboro, NC approx. 70miles from Kannapolis I found that there were crucial parts of this pro kit missing. I contacted customer service and explained my concern and in a short time period I not only received the missing parts to this kit I received a complete prop kit. Just another reason I shop at academy Sports. Glad to see that Academy Sports has chosen ... read more Greensboro, NC as a future location for a New Academy Sports and Outdoors store. Thank you all.

    Worth the money
    I avoided buying this tool until I tried every thing because it seemed very pricey. Once I bought it I realized it is the most important accessory on my boat. I have fished it hard now for 5 months and it's push pull feature has not let me down.

    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!

    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.
