    I would expect you'll get about a 50/50 split.....some prefer Motorguide, some MinnKota. Not sure that this will really help you much.

    wondering about the kota's composite shaft versus the guides stainless. Is one better than the other?

    I have had and still have both. I will give the edge to the S/S shaft of the MG. I find the MinnKota to be heavier than the MG when compared of equal thrust.

    Had MG for years. Switched to a MK FOrtrex last year and couldn't be happier.....other than that stinkin' switch on the WRONG side.

    I see you live in Louisiana. Been fishing around here for 45 years. If you have the grass (hydrilla) you better get the minn kota. You'll wear the lift ropes off the motorguide picking it up clearing the prop. Can't tell you why, the mg doesn't like the heavy grass. (I'm sure that'll commit will get a rise out some folks) but its still true. The composite shaft can be cracked, I had a friend crack his. But his was the only one I know that did and I know a bunch of people that have them. They're both good motors, but the mk has the edge!

    MG because MK sits to high on the bow.

    MK- the composite shaft seems to transmit less vibrations to the hull.
