Need help/advise with my trolling motor

Recommended Posts

Details: 18.5 foot glass boat, edge 70# t.m. 8 years old.      Problem: hellacious torque steer especially on high speed (speed 5).      Most likely will upgrade to maxxum (don't really see the value return of fortrex) but if anyone could help I would really appreciate it..        regards, Clint

Just my opinion, but if you're over 40 take a good hard look at the fortrex.  I got one when they first came out and really love it.  So much easier to deploy and to store.  And it's one helluva trolling motor.

You experience any torque steer  while trolling on high speed

Well you definitely want to have your foot on the controls if you start out at the highest speed, but no worse than any other motor I've used.  Actually a little better because it doesn't just jump to the highest speed.
