Full scoop here, few details below:
> …the ultimate brushless trolling motor for elite anglers. With nearly a decade of research and development behind it, the Move ZR delivers unparalleled power, durability and efficiency….
> Our founder, John Oliverio, and the Power-Pole team began by looking at the technology and materials available and decided that to bear the name Power-Pole, they needed to begin from scratch.
> The Power Unity System of the brushless motor and reinforced Techflow propeller create 30% more power than industry-leading trolling motors, all while being whisper quiet….
> 30% more thrust [and] 30% more efficient.
> The shaft is…manufactured from nearly unbreakable aerospace-grade titanium that will hold up to extreme pressure. That shaft combined with the bracket has been tested to withstand the harshest environments in fishing [including being operated by the Lane brothers lol!]. Compound fail-safes were engineered into the system to ensure that the motor functions as it should even if parts become compromised.
> …advanced Anchor Mode allows the angler to stealthily maintain position while focusing on fishing. The Vector Heading feature follows a straight course down a bank or offshore drift, while our Follow a Route feature guided by ProNav allows the angler to use the Power-Pole app or compatible device to set a route for the motor to follow. Finally, a Compass Heading feature causes the motor to bear towards specific compass headings identified by the user.

Serious time-saver and actually makes me look forward to the job:
