I'm a dealer for both, but I have power poles on my boat and the last
6 boats. The talons are just too big and bulky for me. They range
a lot in price, but the cheapest one they have is the 8' sportsman 11
and in my opinion is just as good as the more expensive ones. They are black
anodized where the pro series is powder coated and the blades are not as wide with
lightning holes down both sides and a lot more money.
