New - old PinPoint 3700

5 posts in this topic

reading some past posts - post facto, I just bought a brand new PinPoint 3700 60lb/60" shaft for a tick over $400 with heavy negotiation. Bought from a reputable retailer with "satisfaction guaranteed, 1 year warranty".

It seemed like a deal at the time, but after reading some posts I'm not sure. Perhaps I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance that I didn't waste $400. Will likely be installing this weekend.

How are you getting along with your Pinpoint?

I've been looking for one (3700 or 2700) but having a hard time locating them. Where did you get yours?

I have the same unit. Bought it from Cabelas 2 years ago for substantially more $. It's a great unit. Be sure your go through the calibration - straight ahead routine and don't expect it to work on very gradual slopes. The motor is very efficient and the bracket/shaft are TOUGH.

You can hardly go wrong for $400. Those went for over $1500.

That being said, I've had a lot of problems with my 2700. Nice trolling motor when working, but has not been reliable.

fishnAddict,

What kinds of problems are you having with your 2700?

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
