I'm looking to get rid of the ancient hunk of junk 30lb motorguide on my ole bass tracker. 

 

I'm not looking for the wireless, gps operated, bells and whistles stuff.  I like the KISS method. I'm not trying to be cheap! IF it costs $1,000 to buy the trolling motor I want thats fine, but it looks like what I want is in the lowest lines of trolling motors, which scares me.

 

I wan't cable drive, 50ishlb thrust(12volt only due to weight), strudy mount(don't want no flopping around and banging and noises) and relaible.

 

Is there anybody out that with something NEW that fits my specs?  I ask that it be new bc there is always changes between a model made now and a model made in 2012.

 

How do you like it? 

 

Thanks in advance!

I got this trolling motor on my 18 foot mudboat and it works great. Plenty power, nice gator mount, and long shaft.

how ya like the hand steer?  I've never messed with one.  thats kind of what I have always thought I would like the best, but I'm kind of not sure now.  I don't do much bass fishing but I'm starting to do a little more and I wonder how it handles compared to foot control when bass fishing.

It's fine. It comes with a foot button to turn on and off so you can set the variable speed and just pulse it or ride it. I kick the handle around with knee or leg while fishing. It's easy to use.

I will never own another foot control trollin motor again, unless its for a pirough or a sneak boat! I have a minn-kota Traxxis with tilt and telescoping handle and it works great!
