Just recently purchased my watersnake FWDR54-48 trolling motor in March, because of the reasonable price and virtually non-existence on the US market. I was somewhat reluctant to purchase, but I'm thrilled that I did. It's simple to maneuver and it pulls my 16 ft bass tracker with two people weighing over two hundred lbs in the wind like a champ. My brother-n-law is my fishing partner and he purchased a watersnake for his boat after the first time we fished with it and he is just as happy. Easy to install, easy to operate, and easy on the pocket; you cannot lose or beat it either way. I would recommend this product to all my friends. I've fished several brands and the watersnake holds up just as well or better than the well known brands.

One Great Trolling Motor
For the money you can't beat this electric steer trolling motor. It has performed flawlessly, and if I do have problems later I know I can rely on walmarts extended 4 year warranty that was also a great value at $55. I'd also like to add that this item was delivered without hardly a scratch on the box which is unusual for a box as heavy and bulky as this one was. Thank you Walmart and fedex!
GREAT MOTOR FOR THE MONEY
Excellent product. Runs good. Easy to use.
Watersnake shadow trolling motor
I was very reluctant to order this since there were virtually no reviews for it. This was extremely easy to install (took me about 45 minutes since the wiring was already in place on my boat) and has more than met my expecations. It is amazing the power it has and how little battery it uses compared to my old trolling motor. The motor is very quiet and responds very quickly. I compared this with a Motor guide and Minnkota. The price difference (about $200) was so great I went ahead and took the chance. I am very glad I did. The only draw back I saw was there was hardly any instructions for installation and operation. If you have ever had a trolling motor it is pretty easy to figure out though.
Bought this trolling motor for a 16ft pontoon, had never heard of nor known anyone that knew about this brand. The weather was actually nice enough today (26 Feb) to where we loaded up and went out around the lake. The motor has more than enough power, running it at the lower speeds actually allowed a very relaxing and pleasant ride. When the higher speeds were used it would move the boat along rather quickly, even with a steady wind blowing. The performance, coupled with the savings of close to 200.00 over the "name brands" warrents anyone looking for a trolling motor to give serious consideration to this brand. Instead of permanently mpunting to the deck I utilized the quick mount kit available from Watersnake.
