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.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
