My Retirement Gift

I purchased the NK300 and the 36 volt 40 AH Battery as a retirement gift for myself to mount on my Feelfree Lure 13.5 V2. I'm so happy with my purchase. What an amazing combination. Great customer service and the install went perfect. A shout out to Tray at Innovative Sportsman for the custom mounting bracket. I would highly recommend this pair to anyone. I'm more than pleased with this purchase.

I've been running the NK300 for a few weeks now. I was running the NK180 prior to getting the NK300. The power and torque on this motor is amazing. The one thing I noticed; the NK300 actually uses less Watts below 5mph then the NK180, which is great for battery life. I'm a bigger guy in a Hobie Pro Angler 14 and I still get about 6.2mph with the NK300.

The KING of kayak motors

I've used a lot of motors on my fishing kayaks throughout the past 5 years and this is by far the best one. I love to participate in kayak fishing tournaments and I am definitely one to bring everything but the kitchen sink with me so a powerful motor that can get me up to speed with the competition has always been a priority. Well I finally found that motor in the NK300. It has me pushing well over 6 mph in a fully outfitted fishing kayak weighted at about 400 pounds. Even on a moderate level of cruise I'm pushing 4-5 mph and maintaining my battery charge all day long. I also like how this motor cuts through the thickest of grass with ease. Other motors I've used on kayaks will have the prop wrap up on grass fairly easily but this one cuts through even the thickest vegetation like butter. Great kayak motor for the competitive tournament angler or recreational angler looking to cover more water in day. Highly recommended!
