I know that Im gonna have to replace my trolling motor sooner rather than later and Im pretty sure that the current motor is costing me fish. I will probably go with a Minnkota as I like their foot pedal design better than a Motorguide's. I'm also fairly certin that I need to go ahead and upgrade to a 24v system. That leaves me with the choice between an Edge 70 or a Maxxum 70. Now the Maxxum is a couple of hundred dollars more and the obvious ways it is a better are as follows: variable speed instead of 5 speeds, the shock absorbing spring in the mount, and the "maximizer" for longer battery life. So the questions are two fold. First is are there any other advantages that I'm missing, and are they worth the extra money?
