Shouldn't be a problem.
Are the Talons mounted so they drag in the water when getting on plane?

Yes, make sure the Talons aren't dragging in the water. Have seen a lot of guys do that with new boats. We had one professionaly installed, and noticed that they were dragging. It caused all kinds of issues with turning etc. Moved it up 4", and don't even notice them.

Well the brackets are under water when you take off I guess I'll try and move them up just hate losing my depth. Thinking about trying a whale tale the brackets themselves can't be move but ill try and move the poles upas far as I can and see hay happens

I've had 8 and 12 footers. The effective depth on each was 1 foot less and no interference with boat performance.

I moved them up as far as I could haven't got to test it yet. They are flush with the bottom of the bracket I've got 10fts

Have you balanced the load in the boat? If you have most of the weight in the back of the boat it will be harder to put on plane. Put some of the heavier weight in the front center box to try to level the load.
