Does anyone have the 15 ft Talons? I am ready to put a pair on my skeeter. Have there been any issues with the 15's? I see where they are 12 inches taller than the 12 ft Talons.. is that an issue getting under bridges. Would just like some feedback before I purchase them....

I have a set. Only been able to use them for one trip. They are tall so you will need tilt brackets to clear low bridges and stuff but you probably would with 12s because they are above the motor also. Really quiet and held good in 15'. Haven't heard any issues but they just came out. They've been pretty reliable since the last version came out

They havenít released the update to use them w ultrex remote. Or a deck button. And they have a glitch where remote wonít raise them at the extended depth that is about the same as on the trailer.


But other than that stuff work great.

Mine did that while on the trailer. I just hit the button on the talon and they came up. No problems on the water though. I thought it was due to being on the trailer.

If they work with the remote that comes with it, then they should be able to be programmed to this remote.

you think by now they would make talons with a power tilt so you don't have to get up in tournaments and set it down?

You will want to install a battery shut off switch to kill power to them. I never tow with power to my poles.

I have a battery shut off on my boat and have never thought about that before. I definitely need to shut it off while I'm traveling! Thanks for the tip.

The story that goes around is you can have your lanyard in the glovebox or day box and a bounce could trigger the switch. Donít know if itís just a wives tale or has happened, but Iíve turned off my switch as part of my routine coming off the lake ever since I got my new boat with poles.

No. There's a new footswitch. The old one won't work on the new Bluetooth models

+1 The only things that have power when I'm not fishing is the motor, auto bilge, and alarm. Everything else is on a switch
