X Series Electric Motor

I had been a Minkota customer but now after 3 years and going on my 4th trolling motor I decided to switch gears and look for something else. Overall experience was good, delivery was slower than advertised but not too bad, and well worth the wait it seems. I have only bee able to use it once so far but the motor was very quiet and powerful. I also like how the telescoping handle can be adjusted up and down, and I really like the circuit breaker on the power cord. So far so good for my experience, and I love that if there is a issue i can call a US based support. I will be recommending this to my friends for sure
