X-cellent

Finally got a chance to get this motor on the water. What a great piece of equipment. We have a 10' RHIB we use in the marshes and part of the deal is minimizing disruption to wildlife or others. This is nearly silent at the three lower speeds and vibration was not noticeable. It was still extremely quiet (just a low hum) when we had to power up against the current as we neared open water. Very impressed with the ease of use in making adjustments to height or angle. Also, I had bought a circuit breaker to protect the engine but Newport Vessels beat me to it including one in the packaging. Super product, super satisfied and thank you for the military service recognition!

Great Motor for my Driftboat

I recently purchased the 55lb X series trolling motor for my drift boat. Shipping was fast and I tracked it all the way. There are some stretches of the rivers in this area that have long slow pools and when the wind is up it makes it difficult to row, especially with two clients in the boat. The 55 is quiet and has performed above my expectations. Today I pushed my boat back up stream three times in a very long pool so we could float it several times since the fish were cooperating in that pool. With three of us, plus all of our gear and cooler full of ice and beverages the 55 had no problems. If I didn't have the motor I would only have rowed back up stream once and it would have taken me a good 15 minutes. With the 55X we were there in 5. We added 30 minutes of fishing time in that pool today instead of my clients watching me row for 15 minutes. If the wind had been blowing downstream today I would not have rowed back up stream to fish it again, but I wouldn't have hesitated with the 55. I particularly like the tilt handle option that I can adjust for running the motor if I'm standing or sitting. Great feature.! I also like the battery power level on the top of the motor so I know how much juice i have. Super quiet with great features and plenty of power. TightLine Fly Fishing LLC

Great Trolling Motor, perfectly fits my inflatable boat

The motor is super quiet. You wouldn't even hear any noise from it. It's a perfect fit for my 5 person inflatable boat. After I hook the motor to the boat, the only adjustment I need is the depth (or the height) of the motor. The operation is super easy. I especially like the telescoping handle of this model, because it comes with a tilt adjustment. You don't adjust your body in order to reach the handle. The handle fits you.

Excellent Trolling Motor

I put this on the back of my Intex Excursion 5 and it works wonders on small to medium size lakes. Trolling is great with it. It's quiet, has sufficient power and is very reliable. Never had a technical issue with it. Also love the telescoping handle, how the angle of the handle is adjustable and how it shows a battery life on it. Definitely has a leg up on the other competitors with those extra features and overall reliability.
