Trolling motors with electric power offer silent movement, clear environment and low prices. To make boating more affordable and save environment, we are now offering HS WING 55lbs Trolling Motors that are popular in Europe and Australia.
What makes this particular trolling motor extremely unique is a 26" custom-cut short shaft to better fit transoms of inflatable boats, rafts. KaBoats, kayaks or canoes. You would not find 55lbs Electric Trolling Motor with a short shaft anywhere else.
Another very unique feature of this trolling motor is a tilting throttle handle with 10 adjustable positions. Adjustable handle allows it to be lifted almost 45 degree up, or all the way down, parallel to the motor shaft. This makes trolling motor more portable, compact and allow much easier transportation and storage than other brands trolling motors with fixed perpendicularly trolling handle. Adjustable angle throttle handle also makes motor operation more comfortable, because you can raise it up or tilt down.
Our 55lbs model uses 12V, with 50 Amp Max Draw. Battery Level reader built into controller housing displays accurate available battery power, and shows when battery need a recharging.
Special composite shaft is more flexible and stronger than other metal or aluminum shafts. This electric trolling motor is salt water ready, and can be used in an ocean, but we highly recommend washing it out with fresh water after each salt water use to extend motor's lifespan.

Totally adequate to move my boat in and out of my slip and tour around the harbor. Was able to move around my harbor, Marina Del Rey CA, for two hours at the 3 to 5 settings without significantly draining a group 24 deep cycle battery. Impressed with the power it puts out and how silent it is. Would have given it 5 stars if I felt more secure about the plastic motor mount.
Update....Easy to hook up and operate and had my 16ft ocean kayak cruising through heavy tidal chop. Happy so far. This unit got shipped to me quickly so I got to see if having a trolling motor on my kayak was worth the hassle early in the season...it is exactly what I wanted. The other day the weather turned and the waves were becoming whitecaps. I wanted to get back to port quickly and this little trolling motor on setting 1 and my faithful kayak sliced right through the chop. It earned my favor!!!
The switch is either starting to fail or just does not have a solid selection feel. Others have complained about this. Approx less than 10 hrs use so I will wait and see.
Having used the older ones and looking at the power draw these are somewhere between the 45 and 55 lb min kotas, closer to the 55 lbs power min kotas but not quite there. Their light weight isn't due to cheap manufacturing but the use of a composite shaft that reduces the units weight and they do have a replaceable sacrificial anode for salt water use, nothing wrong with a plastic shaft on a motor with less than 80lbs thrust and it won't rust either. The shaft length is better than the too short for my use 15" ones from some competitors and not too long having my hand up in the air 36" shaft of others.
IF you get the newest versions with the Maximizer they would be an Outstanding value, if you get the older one it's a good value none the less. I'm giving it a 4 star only because you don't know if these are the maximizer versions.
Update: These guys ship very quickly, rivaling amazon 1 day shipping, the package arrived with everything and the box wasn't damaged, out of the box the motor and prop weighed ~18 lbs dry on my scale, the Motor works with some very bright indictior Leds and the model seems to be one of the newer makes but I have not had a chance to put it in the water and give it a real world test just yet. Will update once I get it out on open water and not in the pool.
While in the pool I borrowed a 50 lbs minn kota ( older non maximizer version ) to do a quick compare, both these motors put out the same thrust based raw force ( as suspected ) but the haswing has a slightly larger prop pitch which will give you higher top speed, the power draw on the haswing was less ( 3-4 amps ). This probably means this is definitely a newer digitally managed version I received, still holding the 4 stars until I get it out of the pool and into the water which will be when I get the motor mount on the kayak complete.
I have used the motor for 3 trips in the salt, it worked great each time. The speed settings draw the approx amperages
Speed 1 6 amps
Speed 2 8 amps
Speed 3 14 to 15 amps
Speed 4 17 to 18 amps
Speed 5 42 to 50 amps
The load does affect the amp draw as I noticed heading into the wind the motor pulled more amps as it has to work harder, I was able to reach 7 kph in 1 ft chop and 20 kph winds on speed 5 but the most efficient speed is 3 which achieved 4 to 5 kph in those conditions. One has to remember all trolling motors are made to push a larger heavier boat at the same speeds and prop pitch and rmp create speed so on a lighter kayak a lot of the power is wasted and speed 5 is to get outta dodge when the weather rolls in.
