trolling motor

Need advice. It is time to invest in a new trolling motor. Likely looking at mid range thrust 45-55 lbs. I am replacing a motor guide which was likely ok in it's time but the switch and steering became difficult. What is the thought os Minn Kota vs. Motor Guide? This is going on a 16' alumaweld with a 40hp motor. Yes, I fish the weeds alot.

Minn kota
I have a minnkota going on three years and runs great. I've had to replace the shear pins a couple of times due to running over all kinds of crap and the motor still runs flawlessly.

The Best Trolling Motor
Find you an O.M.C. trolling motor (Johnson, Evinrude). They don't make them anymore, but I will run one as long as I can find them! They are THE BEST for trolling through grass and last FOREVER with very little maintenance. I bought my last OMC on ebay for $200.00
