T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama, and R2 Marine Innovations, of Chester, Virginia, announce that they have entered into an agreement that grants T-H Marine exclusive global rights to manufacture and distribute the Grass Goat™ trolling motor weed guard. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We’re excited to add the Grass Goat™ as yet another way we can help anglers get better performance from their trolling motor,” T-H Marine’s president, Jeff Huntley, stated. “Weekend anglers and tournament anglers alike will love how the Grass Goat™ allows for easy and stealthy fishing through grass mats and other heavily-vegetated areas.”
The Grass Goat™ is equipped with a marine-grade starboard mounting plate and a 316 stainless steel cutting blade, which runs perpendicular to the trolling motor prop, allowing it to instantly shred away vegetation.
The Grass Goat™ not only keeps a trolling motor clear of debris, it eats through vegetation like no other aftermarket trolling motor product and it is built for years of use under the toughest conditions. With the Grass Goat™ installed, anglers can quietly enter and navigate fishing spots with thick cover.
“The Grass Goat™ is the perfect addition to our G-Force® product line,” Huntley added. “We love how it complements the Troll Perfect™ Tension Adjustment System, the Eliminator™ Prop Nut, the Silencer™ Vibration Control Pad, the G-Force™ Trolling Motor Lift Cable, the Equalizer™ Lift Assist, the Troll-Tamer™ Stabilizer Lock, and the Bounce Buster Coaster™.”
Like other G-Force® products, the Grass Goat™ installs in minutes with simple hand tools and it requires no modification to the trolling motor. Models will be available for both Minn Kota and MotorGuide trolling motors.
To prepare for orders, T-H Marine has brought tooling and manufacturing of the Grass Goat™ to its facility in Huntsville, Alabama. With fabrication and assembly of the product already underway, Huntley added that T-H Marine is ready to take orders and products will be available at thmarine.com/GrassGoat.
“We are thrilled to be adding even more great products to our catalog and continuing more organic product development, too,” Huntley said. “Be sure to look for more product news and updates on availability in the coming weeks.”
