X3-70FW Fresh Water Digital Hand Control Bow Mount Trolling Motor - 70lbs-50"-24V

The X3 trolling motor, designed to deliver better performance and durability for anglers looking for the best value in the 40 to 70 pound thrust range. The X3 is a rugged trolling motor constructed with durable components and loaded with premium features, like our Variable Ration Steering (VRS) technology. The motor comes in foot-and hand-operated models, with available digital power management technology for smooth operation and longer battery life. The X3’s winning combination of performance and value makes it a popular choice for serious anglers.

X3 Freshwater Hand-Operated Models share the following specifications:

  • Composite Shaft Material
  • Forward / Reverse Motor Direction
  • Machete Propeller
  • Twist / Extendable Steering

Updated Mount

The X3 mounting bracket is built tough with aircraft-grade extruded aluminium to minimize flex and provide precision control under high-thrust.

  • Improved rigidity and durability
  • Easier to stow and deploy
  • Wider base for added stability
  • Stainless steel bushings in key wear points
  • Easy motor height adjustment and motor removal

Rugged Composite Shaft

The new larger diameter shafts are rugged and corrosion resistant, paired with a durable stainless steel outer shaft. Special composite construction provides greater impact protection and is backed by a lifetime factory warranty.

Precision Response Steering

The X3 offers best-in-class steering performance. A dual cable pull-pull steering system eliminates slack, while the innovative patent-pending Variable Ratio Technology reduces torque steer feedback and improves responsiveness. A newly designed and reinforced foot pedal also provides better feel and control.

Variable Ratio Technology

  • Improves steering response
  • Reduces torque steer feedback
  • Dual-cable system eliminates steering slop and noise
  • Precision bearings and locking collar eliminates shaft clicking

Composite Locking Pins

By improving these frequently worn parts with modern composite materials we have exponentially increased durability at the most common failure point. The all new pins also eliminate annoying metal-on-metal "clicking" which only adds to the already stealthy nature of the x3.

Powerful Dual Blade Propeller

Comes equipped with a 2 blade propeller for maximum power and weedlessness.

Features

  • Durability means reliability - rigid aircraft-grade aluminum mount, stainless steel bushings and outer shaft, and composite shaft with a lifetime guarantee
  • Quiet on the water - fewer metal-to-metal interfaces, precision bearings, and new composite locking pins eliminate more noise and ensure noise-free operation over time
  • Precision Response Steering - The X3 offers best-in-class steering performance. A dual cable pull-pull steering system eliminates slack, while the innovative patent-pending Variable Ratio Steering technology reduces torque steer feedback and improves responsiveness. A newly designed and reinforced foot pedal also provides better feel and control.
  • Composite Locking Pins - By improving these frequently worn parts with modern composite materials we have exponentially increased durability at the most common failure point.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
