X3 Freshwater Edition Motorguide is thrilled to present the X3 trolling motor designed to deliver much better efficiency and sturdiness for anglers looking for the very best value in the 40- to 70-pound thrust range. The X3 provides best-in-class steering efficiency. Functions Resilience implies dependability - stiff aircraft-grade aluminum install, stainless-steel bushings and outer shaft, and composite shaft with a lifetime guarantee Peaceful on the water - fewer metal-to-metal interfaces, precision bearings, and new composite locking pins eliminate more noise and ensure noise-free operation in time The X3 installing bracket is constructed tough with aircraft-grade extruded aluminium to minimize flex and show precision control under high-thrust. Enhanced rigidity and sturdiness Easier to stow and deploy Larger base for added stability Stainless steel bushings in key wear points Easy motor height adjustment and motor elimination Rugged Composite Shaft The larger diameter shafts are rugged and corrosion resistant, paired with a resilient stainless-steel outer shaft. Unique composite building provides greater impact protection and is backed by a lifetime factory warranty. Composite Locking Pins By improving these often worn parts with contemporary composite products we have greatly enhanced sturdiness at the most common failure point. The pins also eliminate irritating metal-on-metal "clicking" which only contributes to the currently stealthy nature of the X3.
