The new Minn Kota Talon gives freshwater and saltwater anglers the ability to anchor down to 12 feet — the deepest shallow water anchor on the market. Even with the additional anchoring depth, the height of the new Talon does not increase due to the innovative three-stage deployment system. The system utilizes a sequential deployment that quickly and quietly moves the spike vertically until it is securely anchored.
Three distinct anchoring modes are available on the new Talon models. The new Soft Bottom mode prevents the spike from being driven too deeply into a sandy or soft-mud bottom by driving the spike with a single hit and less anchoring force. Auto-Drive mode gives three sequential hits using increasing force to ensure that the Talon is solidly anchored. When the water becomes choppy, the Rough Water mode can be employed. This function performs three Auto-Drive sequences to maintain a secure hold.
