Bps Prowler Trolling Motor

Recommended Posts

I was looking at the BPS Prowler 30lb thrust trolling motors for my 12' aluminum v boat. I want to know if they are any good, or should I spend the extra $15 and get the Minn Kota Endura? I am trying to keep my costs down as much as I can...

You do mean the one for the back right?

Grant it I do like my Prowler(40lb) it's vibrate loud on full thrust. I'm not sure of the 30lb but mine is 3 blade which I like but it doesn't help going through weeds. I still have to paddle out of thick lilies. I had mine for going over 2 years and still no problems yet beside the vibration which I probably just some adjusting that I have looked at yet. I forget. I did have to return my 50lb prowler foot control back but it was more likely my fault not using a 50amp breaker. I didn't use anything and must burnt it out. Do they still have the 40lb for $129? or 50lb prowler on sale?

What I do like on the Prowler is the one year instore warranty.

Minn Kota has 2 years from what I know but I just like to be able return and replace if need right then with then the year.

Still a good deal. You saved yourself $40 from the full price. Did you buy the extended warranty too? I think it will give you another year. So two full years.

I can't remember if the extended is just a year or maybe 2. If I'm not mistaken if not gotten it yet, you have 30 days to do so. I know my 40lb Prowler still kicking strong beside the the things I mentioned in my earlier post and I had it over 2 years. Only thing I had to fix was one of the connection O-ring and the nut to the prop. Some how lost the one that came with it.

Also if not have one yet make sure you have an extra battery.

I got out and tried my new motor yesterday, and man that 50lb makes wake on my little boat even with my wife and two kids. I know it is big for my 12' but I can use it on a bigger boat later on.

Bought a Prowler 50 lb. last year and took it out on my john boat in the slop.

Stalled instantly with clogged prop. Went back to Bass pro and shelled out $40.00 for a machete prop which was actually worse. Returned both for an Endura from MK and haven't looked back. IMO Minn Kotas are built more solidly and definitely a whole lot more weedless.
