    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.

    Everything you would hope for.
    I recently purchased a 14 foot flat bottom boat to use around small lakes. I was a little low on money to buy a motor, so I opted for this trolling motor instead. The Endura C2-30 has been everything I wanted and more! On the highest setting, this trolling motor puts wake behind my boat. The reverse is great as well. The extension arm is a great feature on this motor. It allows me to stear without straining my arm to reach it. I am very happy with my purchase and I encourage everyone else to ... read more give the Endura C2-30 a try!

    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.

    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.

    Plenty of power
    Store did not have in stock, but were very helpfull in getting it ordered and provided free three day shipping to the house. I have a 14' deep v, the motor is quiet and has plenty of power in all speed settings to get the job done. I'm very pleased with the service I received and the product.

    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.

    Smooth and strong
    Bought this about 2 months ago replacing a motor guide that was about 10 years old. Love the foot pedal of the new minn kota and it is powerful and seems to have a longer run time than the old trolling motor

    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.

    minn-kota 45/45
    bracket racks a little when using the high setting. the chart for what motor you need is very miss leading. I used the depth chart to come up with 45/45. after installing I realized I needed the 36" length for better adjustment. the motor runs smooth and quiet.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
