The Minn Kota booth at ICAST was the place to be following the New Product Showcase and its double award win.
After its success – the Minn Kota Ultrex won Overall Best of Show and the Boating Accessories category – Brand Manager Brad Henry told Angling International that he was inundated with visitors wanting to get a look at the winning product. “It was a pretty hectic time – everyone was overwhelmed by what they saw.”
Henry added: “It was amazing to pick up two awards. To have all our hard work – throughout every single department – pay off in this way was an unbelievable feeling. We are all very proud.”
The Johnson Outdoors brand, one of the foremost makers of trolling motors, has added GPS technology to the popular Ultrex. “A lot of people have been asking us for this type of motor,” explained Henry. “It still has the look and feel of cable steer, but we have now added brains to it. Everyone we showed it to was pretty blown away by it.”
