Features and Benefits

The build and design of Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb thrust) is quite good. It has a simple and elegant white color to it and has a quite sturdy built, which will keep the motor damage-free and will keep it working without hindrances. 

The shaft is made of special corrosion-resistant material for keeping it rust-resistant and can be used extensively in salt water too. Along with the clean design, it is also accompanied by an LED battery reader, near the head of the electric motor, which gives a clear indication of the battery requirements of the motor.

2. Handling

The Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb thrust) has an extendable telescopic handle to it, for maximum comfort and usage of the trolling motor. The trolling motor also has 3 stainless steel propellers, which are sharp enough to cut through seaweeds and other plants, and thus can be used nonstop for several hours at a time, without any hindrances.

Power it with a 12V battery, and it will give you good usage for several hours.

Thus, this motor is an optimum electric motor for fishing and boating activities in fresh as well as salt water. 

It is great for fishing activities as it does not make too much noise or heat up and thus does not alert fishes. Further, the motor has good speed and can go slow as well as fast according to the speed adjusted through the telescopic handle provided. 

Overall it gives a good performance. It works well with a 12V battery, giving it sufficient power to run throughout the day. In essence, the performance of this product is great.

It has quite a sturdy and elegant built quality. The model is made of erosion free material, for it to function in salt water. It also has 3 stainless steel propellers for seaweed to not get stuck in the propellers. One major con of this product is that the motorhead is not waterproof, and water can seep in if not taken care of. An additional cover is recommended to keep the motor safe.

6. Control

The Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb thrust) is extremely compatible with an adjustable handle and a good grip, giving comfort and optimum usage while adjusting direction and speed. 

The handle controls are a bit different from certain motors. Thus it will take time to lay your hands on it. Further, the speed adjustments get slightly hard once the charge is low, and the water is turbulent but runs really smoothly otherwise.

7. Price

As compared to other electronic trolling motors in the market, the Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb) thrust is available at an extremely reasonable price and has more or less the same features all the other expensive electric trolling motors provide, thus on this point it is a complete steal for me.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Trolling Motor

There are certain things that should be considered before you purchase a trolling motor. You needs to check:

  • If the trolling motor is compatible with your boat or kayak.
  • If the trolling motor can be used in saltwater.
  • How much charge does the trolling motor require to function.
  • The thrust variant required according to your boat.

Alternatives

As compared to the other electric motors, the Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb) is available at a much lower price and offers similar features, but it is preferable to know the price and difference of the other motors in the market to make an informed purchase.

1. MinnKota Edge Bow Mount Foot Control Trolling Motor

MinnKota Edge Bow Mount Foot Control Trolling Motor is an alternative, which is at a similar price range. It cannot be operated in salt water and is a foot control trolling motor without any hand control, which makes it inconvenient for some users.

2. AQUOS Haswing Cayman Bow Mount Electric Trolling Motor

Then there is the AQUOS Haswing Cayman Bow Mount Electric Trolling Motor, which comes with a remote control facility. This product has extremely similar features other than the remote-control facility but is provided at a much higher price.

3. PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust)

Then there are other variations and thrust sizes of trolling motors available in the market of several brands such as the PEXMOR Electric Trolling Motor (86lb thrust), which has 10 LED lights to determine the charge and battery needs and has a higher, more powerful thrust to it.

Bottom Line

The Watersnake Venom Swet Electric Trolling Motor (54lb) is a great trolling motor for first-time users as well as those people who just require a simple and elegant trolling motor for their basic boating and fishing needs. 

This trolling motor has a great design, is sturdy, and is powerful enough to push your boat throughout the day, which makes it a good purchase for occasional as well as regular boaters.
