pinpoint

4 posts in this topic

just wondering if anyone out there has ar has used a pipoint trollong motor/finder system. I have heard about the problems the autopilots have been having so I have ruled it out as my next trolling motor. I'm looking to the masses for some hands-on info and not a salesman looking for an eager buyer.

problems?......is it worth the huge $$$?.......plus's/miunus's

anybodys 2 cents would be appreciated.

I am also going to be purchasing a new pinpoint in a few days and would like to here what some people have to say about them. Has anyone used both the SX series and the 3000 series? Will the SX follow structure such as humps, points, and sharp breaks as well as the 3000 series? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have a 2001 model 3700 24V 60# 60" shaft on a 1800 pro v. how it works? the steeper the coutour you are following the better the steering/sonar system works. on very-very gradual slopes they get lost or wander. Fishing hands-feet free is great when you use that feature. The motors are extremely efficient. The bracket and shaft are ruggedly built. I like the depth and temp readout on the display. I find I don't use most of the features early in the season. bottom line-- it's a killer machine, but I'm sure I could be satisified with less.

I purchased a new boat this year with a Pinpoint system on it. It has the 3000 series on it. Overall I would have to say its pretty good. Id buy another one. But there are draw backs. In areas with without alot of depth change it seems to get lost and wander around. If its a better drop it works good. But on a flat area you wouldnt need the depth track anyway. I havent needed to use the creek and shore track yet. I fish with my wife and son alot and the motor keeps me on the structure when my hands are full.(e. taking off fish baiting hooks) This helps a ton. I also like the backtrack feature. Catch a few fish and hit the resume button 2 times and the motor spins the boat around and follows the contour back. You'll smile when other guys are bouncing from 5ft to 25ft and your staying right at the depth you want.

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree

      Go home!

      It's coming down

      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written

      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
