Being my first foot-controlled motor I struggled a bit with the steering for most of a day. But once accustomed to it found it very smooth and began to catch myself working the shoreline without even having to think about it. I'm impressed with the power - It scoots my 14' Lund right along even in strong wind. I'm also impressed with how little my battery was drained. My one complaint is that it's the least "weedless" trolling motor I've been around. The hub of the prop' extends about 1' forward of the blades, and weeds wrap around that section of hub with no chance of being chopped up. Since you pivot the motor 180 degrees for reverse - rather than reversing rotation of the prop' - there is no way to un-weed the prop' without tilting the motor up and pulling the weeds off by hand. For the price, I'm very happy with it.
