This is our Custom Trolling Motor Cables – 8 AWG. The best cable assembly starts with the best wire. And we obsess about wire and quality connections for our customers boat. Vertex Marine was our favorite, right from the start. Unmatched copper purity, jacket quality, tinning, in addition to highest strand count for flexibility.
All of the different AWG sizes of their stranded marine wire starts with a tinned .010″ multiple count, and in this case (8 AWG), the count is 665 strands.

We use Panduit brand lugs in our Custom Trolling Motor Cables – 8 AWG cables. Panduit lugs are the best in the industry. Because of their strict control over copper purity, and purity standards, connections using their lugs can withstand high currents better than anything else.
Our U.S. made pneumatic crimp tool exerts up to 130 tons of pressure in a 4 sided box pattern to perfectly crimp the lug onto the cable. Lastly, we then seal the connection with clear, glue lined heat shrink and seal the entire connection with the heat shrink, providing the very best connection to you.
