PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor Review
Last Updated on October 9th, 2020
People say that trolling motors are not powerful enough to move their boats at a good speed and do not last an entire day, thus making it inconvenient when it stops midway. This is not true.
Trolling motors have different thrust variations and different models that are suitable for different types of boats. For example, a 35 lb light trolling motor can be easily used for an inflatable boat or a kayak. But if you have a big boat, you can not use a smaller thrust variation, but a bigger one which has a powerful motor to push your heavy boat around the entire day.
Thus, for bigger or heavier boat owners, the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) will be a good choice. This product is pretty economical and is powerful enough to push the boat even with multiple people on it.

PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor
The PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor is a high power, high thrust (86lb) trolling motor, which is quite sufficient for one’s fishing and boating needs. It is a hand steering trolling motor and has different variations of 36, 46, 55, and 86 lb thrust, according to the size and specifications of the boat.
Further, the issue of the motor making too much noise and heating up does not arise in this motor, allowing you to fish in peace and not cause harm to the marine life around. The PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor is also pretty sturdy and can function really well in all types of water bodies. The motor is really powerful and can be used throughout the day.
This motor has its pros and cons, which are listed below.
- The motor can function well in fresh as well as salt water.
- The three-blade propellers are pretty strong and cut through sea vegetation easily.
- The motor comes with a strong adjustable shaft to give better depth perception.
- The motor is pretty economical as compared to its competitors
- It has an extremely sensitive throttle, which can be dangerous if one is unaware.
- The battery cable on the 86lb thrust variant is not powerful enough to support the current.
The PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) comes with a 6-slot telescoping adjustable handle to accommodate the handle according to the size, placement, and the needs of the boats as well as the operator. Furthermore, the handle is super smooth and comfortable, with the 5 forward and 3 backward actions taking place with ease.
The shaft of this trolling motor is pretty sturdy, and is adjustable with the help of a button. The depth perception of the shaft and the motor can be adjusted according to the need of the operator and the condition of the waterbody. The shaft is made of fiberglass, which not only makes it sturdy but also gives it a great look.
The quality and the make of the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) is pretty sturdy. On top of having a good built, the trolling motor is also protected with saltwater corrosion-resistant materials to ensure a good life span, which is seen in very few electric motors online.
4. Battery Capacity
The battery capacity of this trolling motor is pretty good, which gives power to the motor for an entire day of boating. This also has a 10 LED light indicator, which is quite bright, and of great quality. One more feature I liked about it was that the light gets red when there is a low battery and green when it has sufficient battery, which is not present in other trolling motors.
The three-blade propellers of the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) are pretty sharp and sturdy and can easily cut through seaweed and other barriers that get stuck in the propellers. Further, the 86lb model also has additional 2-3 blade propellers for higher performance.
The motor is really powerful and can maintain the boat at a good speed for hours, depending upon the condition of the waterbody. One con about the battery is that the cable provided with the device is not large enough to support the power amp of the battery, and thus, it is recommended to purchase an additional cable for safety.
The PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) does not make much noise and thus does not cause an issue while fishing. The motor is pretty powerful, but it does not heat up and remains stable the entire duration of the boating trip.
Furthermore, it comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. Thus, if there is any damage or defect on the part of the company, the same is always rectified by their customer service.
Things to Consider Before Buying a Trolling Motor
One needs to consider certain important things before investing in a trolling motor.
- Whether it is being bought for a big boat or a small boat/kayak, a lower thrust variant can be used for smaller boats and kayaks.
- Whether the trolling motor is compatible with your boat or kayak.
- Whether the trolling motor can be used in fresh as well as salt water, depending on the type of waterbody you are using it in.
- Whether the trolling motor is waterproof.
Further, the issue of the motor making too much noise and heating up does not arise in this motor, allowing you to fish in peace and not cause harm to the marine life around. Thus, one can lay back and enjoy leisure time with their family and friends, while the motor takes care of their rowing needs throughout the day.
PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) model is powerful enough according to the specifications and needs of bigger boats and is powerful enough to push your boat with ease throughout the day. There are several other thrust variants available, and one should choose it according to their needs and their specifications and then purchase the product.
There are multifarious trolling motor alternatives available in the market which needs to be looked into before purchasing a trolling motor. Along with several thrust variations of the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor itself, there are a few decent brands which need to be considered before making a purchase.
1. Minn Kota Edge Bow Mount Foot Control Trolling Motor
There is the Minn Kota Edge Bow Mount Foot Control Trolling Motor, which, as the name suggests, is a foot-controlled trolling motor and does not have a handle to it. Along with that, it also is not made for saltwater use as the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) and thus can get spoilt and get rusted if used in saltwater.
2. Newport Vessels NV-Series Transom Mounted Electric Trolling Motor
The Newport Vessels NV-Series Transom Mounted Electric Trolling Motor is a good alternative, as it more or less provides the same quality and service, but has only 5 LED lights to it, as compared to the 10 that PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor has.
3. AQUOS Haswing Cayman Bow Mount Electric Trolling Motor
The AQUOS Haswing Cayman Bow Mount Electric Trolling Motor is a great alternative if you have a bigger budget. It is a remote-controlled trolling motor, thus for providing that service, it is understandably more expensive.
The PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust) is a complete steal for the price it is provided at. This motor is great for those boaters who have a big or a heavy boat and require a strong and sturdy trolling motor to go along with it, which can function in salt as well as fresh water throughout the day.
