pinpoint trolling motors

4 posts in this topic

I just bought a new lund pro angler with 75 yamaha 4 str.
I am not too familiar with the new pinpoint trolling motors .I think they were bought by motorguide. I don't mind spending a little xtra for their technology.Does anybody know what model ? features? would be a good choice for this boat?

I have one on my T-Pro 170. When it worked it was great. Now it doesnt. It sucks.
Had a hard time finding anyone who will touch them. There is a place in bloomington called the motor clinic that will fix them now. Bet for what it cost to fix i could buy a new one.

They are alot cheaper now that they went under but I wouldnt buy one again. Wait and see what happens when MotorGuide builds their own pinpoint type motor. At least you can get a minkota fixed easy.

Do you think its good to buy something from a company that had to be bought out? Maybe Motorguide will do a better job of it.

Deemo,

It depends on why the company had to be bought out. When there is a death involving the biggest player in a company I think that is a good reason. Just my .02 cents.

So you are sayin buy it? I know guys who spent alot on this system and I am included. If u havent had problems you are lucky unless it is new.
If you could get it fixed easy I say go for it. The one guy I know who sent one in got a bill for just under $900 and had to ship it. you are talking a grand to fix it. I dont see guys standing in line to buy it and I will help out guys who ask. I payed for this last year and it lasted less then one season. Im just showing what happened to me. They have a 1 year warranty.

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
