No More Power Troll Batteries
« on: March 08, 2017, 10:45:40 AM »
I learned today that Paul Toracinta, the owner of Power Resources, passed away a while back.

Paul was a member of my bass club back in the 1990s. He was a great guy and had started selling AGM batteries under the brand name of Power Troll Batteries, to bass boat owners.

I've owned Power Troll batteries for many, many years and they were the absolute best batteries I ever used. So now I will have to find another AGM brand to buy when my Power Trolls finally call it quits on me.

More than that, though, I was sad to hear that Paul had passed away. He was always fun to be around and loved to joke and laugh.  :crying:

I thought i heard he passed but wasn't sure!  Way to young to go :P

He was a nice guy! We stayed at his condo a few years back in NH and fished the area. He had a nice place!

As for the batteries, Cabelas has their AGM batteries on sale for half price at times. Heard they're pretty good?

Ya, 54 is way too young. Heck, that's how old I am right now.

I think he had a lot of health problems from being so overweight all those years.

He'd lost about 150 lbs. in the few years before he died, but I guess the damage had already been done :(

By the way, thanks for the heads up on the AGM batteries from Cabela's.
