  1. Ulterra Users - Take Note-Discconnect ALL POWER

    Minn kota service center told me to unplug after use 10+ yrs ago. Kept frying the motherboard and no batt probs now.
  2. Duracell AGMs??

    I think I read on this forum that Batteries Plus had some nice AGMs with longer warranties if @ competitive $ if I'm not mistaken. Might be worth a look for comparison. Jp
  3. Cold stun closes NC Spec fishing

    Im good with it. Atleast it closes for commies too. Netters just kill it for everybody up here.
  4. Pathfinder 22 - GPS Upgrade

    I installed the 94sv when I purchased my 24trs. I have enjoyed the unit and find the screen size to be more than adequate. Now if I wanted simple and easy, then I would go with the 1040xs, and the larger screen is a bonus. Done. But I also like the two unit idea. Reason being, I find myself running a split screen on my 94sv quite a bit. With two 8" units, I then would have a larger screen for each function,etc. Im sure you have considered how you like to use your electronics, as I think this is a factor as well. Jp
  5. Daiwa Fuego reviews?

    True on the LT models. I paid $72 the Fuego LT and $52 for the Legalist LT and thought that was a decent deal.
  6. Daiwa Fuego reviews?

    BOGO on the Fuego? Absolutely!
  7. Daiwa Fuego reviews?

    The docs in the Fuego box do state its not fully waterproof and not to soak the reel or use cleaning agents. Says not to lube the Magseal under the rotor obviously. Also not to disassemble the body or rotor for maintenance. Dont know if that translates to a fully sealed reel or not, but thats whats written. If these reels end up being a home run it may be a game changer for the $. If not, thats ok.
  8. Daiwa Fuego reviews?

    One decent review on AMZN I read this am. First, let me say Im not a reel guru. My son and I got one Fuego 2500 LT and a few Legalis 2500/3000 LT's for Christmas. Reels are very light, super smooth and honestly feel the same to me, except the Fuego "basically" has the Magseal for an extra $20-$30 imo. I normally stick with Shimano Stradics, etc, but my tackle guy(family friend) says the same as your TFO dude, so I thought I'd try them. Fortunately, the reels arent too expensive in case they disappoint. Will update after real world use, but these are my first impressions. JP

  12. Pathfinder 24 Tournament & Motor?'s-Quiz Time

    I went from a 22 to a 24trs in '15. The 22 was a pure fishing setup. Little family amenities, if any frankly. I find the livewell systems to be excellent on the TRS, since you mentioned that is of interest. My wife and son now have comfy jumpseats which they do like. I find my TRS fishes well, which is what we do mostly, especially with 2 or more people. The roominess is nice. But we also do the family thing and go tubing, etc and it works well for that too. I absolutely hate the centered position of the wheel. It leaves little room for a passenger beside the driver. I too have enjoyed the 300. It seems a bit heavy to me, and I have to use a touch of tabs below 35mph or it porpoises a bit. Others have had similar experiences. Not sure about that on the TE. Generally, with 3 boys I would want all the ponies I could get with the 300 vs SHO. All in all, much of the above the TE would do just as well as the TRS and maybe better in some instances, minus the family comforts perhaps. Jp

  14. Having 5 batteries in a 2017 2200trs

    I upgraded to the Ulterra 36v/60in shaft in Jan on my 24trs. Awesome. Havent had a moments problem, but these units are still new imo. The first time you double click "deploy" you will be sold. Jp
