Italy I’ve noticed you an a lot of other pro anglers run a Fortrex Minn KotaWhy an not one of the other higher end Minn Kota such as Terrova?Posted on January 7th, 2017
Hi Ed, good question. The Minn Kota Terrova models are good for anglers that are looking for a hand-held remote unit, or foot control where they can use the electric for casting and especially for trolling slowly for fish like walleye. Terrova’s have a bit of a lag when it comes to maneuverability response whereas the Fortrex is a “cable unit” and you have instant response in maneuverability like when you work around docks for flippin’ etc.
This past year I used the new MotorGudieXi5 which is a remote electric like the Terrova with wireless hand-held control or wireless foot-control, but it has the maneuverability and quick response as the MinnKota Fortrex produced by their sophisticated steering transmission…worth a serious look!
