X3-70FW Fresh Water 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.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.
