Minn Kota® Unveils “No Compromise” Ultrex™ Trolling Motor
Racine, WI (July 8, 2016): Minn Kota® introduces the trolling motor anglers have only dreamed of – a hybrid that merges the body of a Fortrex® with the brains of i-Pilot®, complete with Spot-Lock electronic GPS anchoring and more.
New for 2017, Minn Kota’s Ultrex™ gives anglers the control and responsiveness of a Fortrex, plus effortless Power Steering and i-Pilot® features, like Spot-Lock. Paired with Steering Lock, which allows you to take your foot off the pedal without losing motor heading, Ultrex will change the way you fish.
“We continue to set the bar high for break-through innovations to help anglers catch fish. Ultrex is no exception,” says Brad Henry, Minn Kota Brand Manager. “We’ve combined the reliability and responsive ‘wired-to-the-water’ feel of our tournament-proven Fortrex with the GPS technologies of i-Pilot, i-Pilot Link, and Spot-Lock electronic anchoring. It’s the best of both worlds.”
