Battle of the POLE’S


Power Pole’s BLADE, Minn Kota’s TALON, Minn Kota’s new RAPTOR

Blade, Talon or the new Raptor? Just another shallow water anchor? NO!

Some say its a knock off of Power Pole’s shallow water anchor but it brings allot more to the water than just an anchor.

  • Automatically adjusts to wind, waves and current. It will adjust to keep you in place (hence the title of active anchoring)

  • Regardless it will adjust, dig deeper and secure you from moving while your on a hot spot.

  • Auto bottom-mode, it will automatically adjust its internal setting based on the bottom surface you are anchoring to. Regardless of rock, sand or mud.

  • The new Raptor is also compatible with Humminbird graphs so you can anchor directly form the graph, wireless remote and wireless foot switch!

Each anchor has its own benefits.

For instance, the Talon’s operate vertical which certainly saves on space. (especially when parking the battle ship away for the winter)

Active Anchoring: This revolutionary anchoring technology continuously monitors anchoring force and adjusts to keep you pinned to the bottom

Auto Bottom Mode: On Active Anchoring enabled models, this anchoring mode automatically senses bottom composition and hardness to deliver the right amount of anchoring force every time.

Durable Design: A wider profile, heavy duty reinforced pivot points and extruded aluminum design will keep Raptor on the water in the harshest conditions
Retraction Force: We designed Raptor with increased retraction force to ensure spike removal in all bottom types.

Multiple Control Options: Control Raptor from anywhere on the boat using your choice of options: Wireless Remote, Foot Switch, i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link Remote, Mobile App or right from the Humminbird fish finder.

User-Selectable Anchoring Modes: Separate anchoring modes for Rough Water (heavy wind and chop), Soft Bottom (muddy or silted bottom), standard (normal anchoring), and Auto-Bottom Mode on Active Anchoring equipped models which automatically delivers the ideal anchoring force by sensing bottom hardness.

Indestructible Anchoring Spike: Strong and flexible composite anchor spike backed with a lifetime guarantee.

Auto Up/Down: Automatically deploy or retract your Raptor with the push of a button; no need to hold the button down.

Saltwater-Tough Engineering: Keeps Raptor safe from the corrosive effects of saltwater

Here’s a recent video from Minn Kota on the Raptor.
