Minn Kota or Motorguide

Recommended Posts

Excellet question. I have had 4 MG's. I will never own another one unless Motorguide buys it for me. I got a minn kota, hit the lilly pads and tried to make it quit. It is truly weedless. Im not saying you can never get it stuck but it takes a severe combinations of weeds and lillys to make that happen. Even with the Machette prop attatched to the MG, I was unable to get this kind of performance.

I do believe you have a speed advantage with the MG over Minn Kota but that simply can be resolved by buying a higher LB thrust. Spend the money, next to your outboard its the best thing you always use on the boat. If the outboard breaks, its your best friend.

Good Luck.

;)  That's no lie Mark. I blew my motor last year about a mile down the river from the ramp. Luckily my Minn Kota had enough juice to get me back against the strong Mississippi River current.
