Gear Review: MotorGuide Tour Series

Tour reinvented

MotorGuide’s Tour Series trolling motors have been redesigned from prop to pedal with the best technology available. With a renewed dedication to building the world’s best trolling motors, MotorGuide’s Tour and Tour Pro are the cable steer trolling motors that every diehard angler has been waiting for.

These two motors even bring back an old favorite, an all-metal and zero-flex foot pedal which provides the most solid steering on the market. Tour and Tour Pro are built for tough conditions with a full 360-degree breakaway system and a rugged two-piece shaft assembly with an oversized metal outer column and unbreakable inner composite shaft with a lifetime warranty.

Why cable steer?

MotorGuide’s Tour Series delivers silent, responsive true cable steering with the traditional cables anglers know and trust. Improved stainless-steel cables run from the all-metal foot pedal to a steering drum that keeps the angler in immediate control of the lower unit. Tour Series motors can steer and respond quickly — over twice the speed of the leading competitor, which provides the quick steering that anglers have come to expect from a true cable steer motor.

Tour Pro is the only true cable steer motor with GPS anchor available today. Pinpoint GPS comes standard on all Tour Pro motors, providing anglers with 3x as precise anchoring capabilities, so anglers can stay on structure and fish, even in tough currents and wind. Pinpoint GPS also includes features like Jog, Heading Lock and Cruise Control for ultimate boat control, as well as chartplotter integration for autopilot and navigation control from Lowrance, Simrad and Mercury VesselView displays.
