Who uses them and what are your thoughts? I had push pins on my last boat and they didn't work very good in the wind. I have fished out of a boat with Power Poles and it was rock solid compared to my push poles. I know that you can't beat the convenience of the Power Poles and Talons. I'm just trying to decide of the convenience is worth the outrageous cost.

I like the Power Poles a lot but I wouldnt ever go out and buy any. On them windy days I still use my hand driven poles I just toss out the anchor as well to help me stay still.

I have the Talon 12' and think it's great. It's all electric, so there's no hydraulic pump or hoses. It's really nice not having to bust out the anchor when fishing shallow. I've used it in up to 15mph winds with no slippage.

The power poles are the only way to go. I also use to have to push the rods into the mud, sand ... And throw the anchor and all. And I would never go back. But for some it's more of a cost approach or limited space approach. You will not be disappointed with PP.
