  • Minn Kota endura 38 lbs thrust 36 inch shaft $150. Minn Kota endura c2 30lbs thrust 30 inch shaft $110. Bass pro shops' prowler

    Minn Kota endura 38 lbs thrust 36 inch shaft $150. Minn Kota endura c2 30lbs thrust 30 inch shaft $110. Bass pro shops' prowler 45 lbs thrust 36 inch shaft $150. Which one is best for my 10' Jon boat? Which one is the best value? Anybody ever used one? Obviously the BPS prowler has the most pounds of thrust for the money but I've heard really good things about Minn Kota. I'd like the prowler but I've heard bad things about their reliability.

    We have used minnkota Since 1998 I think? Ik as long as I have been fishing with my Dad and can remember, we have either had a transom mounted, or bow mount Minnkota, our 16 alumacraft has a bow mount, and I have the transom mounted 38 pound on on my 12 ft starcraft, and It allows me to move around well without starting up my 4 horse suzuki, so I imagine it movethe 10ft jon boat like a breeze, Go minnkota, great quality

      Any of those listed will work fine. I've always had MinnKotas and haven't had any trouble with them. The 38 lb thrust would do the job.

        Is another 8 pounds of thrust worth 45 dollars. I had a 54 pound thrust but it broke so Ive never had anything else so I dont know how much diference 8 pounds it will make? Also, what does the shaft length do? I usually go fishing alone on my 10 footer so I dont like lugging something really heavy around by myself.

          Minnkota 38lb thrust is what I would go for. Like what has already been said, minnkota makes dependable and sturdy trolling motors. I may be wrong, but what you was asking about the shaft length I believe is the shaft between the prop to the head of your trolling motor. It's just telling you how deep down in the water you can get that prop.

            Yes, I know what the shaft is. What significance does a longer shaft provide if any?

              It depends on your transom, If you have a 20 inch transom (doubtful) you need the longer shaft, were 15" transoms the other one will do just fine.

                Minnkota motors have worked great for me. I have two on my boat, a 48lb on the bow and a 30lb on the transom. The 38lb would be my choice although it's always a tradeoff between power and battery life/cost. The 30lb would be fine on a 10' boat unless you run on faster rivers a lot.

                  I don't think much of it matters, I would go with the cheapest. When I bought a new boat, 14 foot instead of the 12 I had, it came with a Die Hard motor. I was skeptical, but after two years of everyday use in the summer I still haven't had a problem. I also have a friend who has the minn Kota. He hasn't have a problem with it either.
