Tampa, Fla. – March 3, 2023 – Power-Pole introduces a new movement in Total Boat Control with the Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor. Nearly a decade in the making, the Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor was concepted and constructed from the ground up with a focus on improving upon existing offerings. The result, according to Power-Pole, is not only the most powerful electric motor available, but also the quietest and most durable trolling motor.
"The Power-Pole team began by looking at the technology and materials available and decided that to bear the name Power-Pole, they needed to begin from scratch. To have the power and stealth we desired, we needed to produce our own brushless motor and steering components to achieve our goals. Our research and development produced technology that have never been used in marine application."
The Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor technology used in a Brushless Motor and STEALTH STEERING DRIVE, key to the operational reliability of the motor. The motor and steering systems are engineered to produce power while remaining near silent in their operation. The unit is claimed to create 30-percent more power than industry leading trolling motors, all while being whisper quiet in the propulsion and the steering systems.
The shaft is manufactured from, "nearly unbreakable aerospace-grade titanium that will hold up to extreme pressure" according to the press release. That shaft combined with the bracket has been tested to withstand the harshest environments in fishing. While it is built to last, the trolling motor is built with contingencies so that anglers can stay on the water. Compound fail-safes were engineered into the system to ensure that the motor functions as it should even if parts become compromised.
The Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor comes standard features like advanced Anchor Mode, allowing the angler to maintain position while focusing, Vector Heading for following a straight course down a bank, and the Follow a Route feature guided by ProNav allowing the angler to use the Power-Pole app or compatible device to set a route for the motor to follow. Finally, a Compass Heading feature causes the motor to bear towards specific compass headings identified by the user.
It will operate in 24- or 36-volt systems, and is integrated with their C-Monster 2.0 wireless connection system. It produces Max True Thrust of 100 pounds in a 36-volt system or 78 pounds in a 24-volt setup. Power-Pole has chosen to use real world honest “True Thrust” numbers to measure MOVE performance instead of the current industry inflated scaling standards.
The Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor carries a three-year warranty on everything but the titanium shaft, which is protected by a lifetime warranty. Of course, all warranties are backed by the world class Customer Service that only Power-Pole provides.
Pro angler Chris Lane, a multi-time Champion and Power-Pole pro testified to the quality of the product. “This trolling motor is the ultimate combination of everything I need to compete,” said Lane. “MOVE is the lightest and quietest I have ever used and is the most powerful and strongest at the same time; it has truly helped me go more places and catch more fish.”
Lane’s brother Bobby, a Champion angler and key Power-Pole pro staffer himself, echoed his brother’s sentiments. “I am primarily a shallow water angler and being stealthy is very important to me,” said the elder Lane. “MOVE is not only the quietest motor I have ever used, but it has every major feature I need to be competitive and some that you don’t expect; it is truly the best I have ever used.”
The MOVE ZR is available in shaft lengths of 45, 52 and 60-inch versions. It comes standard with our Wireless RealFeelTM Foot Pedal, separate wireless Foot Buttons that control Anchor Mode and GPS functions along with a Wireless Trolling Display to help the angler keep up with the system. MOVE ZR also comes with a Wireless Hybrid Remote complete with Charging Cradle that is compatible with the Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors through the C-Monster 2.0 system. MOVE ZR begins at $4999 MSRP for the 45-inch, $5199 for the 52-inch or $5399 for the 60-inch version. There is a $200 increase for a model with integrated Lowrance HDi transducer.
Robert Shamblin, Vice President of JL Marine Systems, Inc. explained how much went into the development of the motor. “The Power-Pole MOVE Brushless Trolling Motor is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication of the Power Pole team,” said Shamblin. “I am happy to say that the result is the best trolling motor on the market, and I can’t wait for everyone to be ‘MOVEd’ when they experience what we’ve produced.”
