Default Tempted to upgrade my Trolling motor.

Hey Guys,

I have a 2015 RT 80LB minnkota and I like it alot (used it for over 400hrs). but started to show some age signs but still work perfectly fine. I am tempted to get the newer RT 80LB since I heard they have better spot lock, u can move the locked spot for fine tuning ur position and it consume better the battery
Anyone did that upgrade and think its worth it? am I being spoiled here? my buddy wanna buy my old one with $650 and the new one is about $1800, do you think its worth it?

Thanks,

Do it, you want it, and yours is worth zero dollars when it’s broke. They don’t run forever, get rid of it while you can still get something for it.

Yes, it's worth it. The new spot-lok is much improved and the jog feature is nice. Plus, you're getting a new motor with 2years warranty.
