Newport Vessels X-Series 55 lb Thrust Trolling Motor Review

This motor is superbly built with lots of emphasize on the build quality. Whole body is made from lightweight aluminium, black finished to make it extra strong. 30 inch shaft is ideal for small boats and kayaks. Telescoping 6 inch handle is very convenient to hold, so it helps in coming out of harsh water, and you can easily rely upon the power. While working, it is very silent, and doesn’t vibrate. After you finish installing, and locking all the parts, there is no scope for vibrations to happen. Even if the throttle is full, the body remains rigid, and doesn’t move a bit due to revolutions of motors.


55 pounds of thrust is a lot of power for transom mount trolling motor. When you install it on your boat, you can feel the power of it, on every speed variation. If you push the throttle to the maximum speed, you can see your boat moving with humongous power. Even if the boat has six full-size people, it can propel the boat real fast. Tested on harsh waters, this motor was capable of making the boat go in any direction as desired by the pilot, nullifying the effect of fast currents. The coolest feature is the battery LED indicator, to show you how much of the battery left, and you can easily plan your next move.
