Really? roflmao

So Spot Lock is no good either since it doesn't have technology to keep your boat facing the direction it is in when set?

Im a over thinker heres my set up and how I use them.

I have a ultrex.

I have two 15 talons.

I have a talon control foot pad on my floor to control BOTH talons. NEXT to it I have a talon remote modified to control ONE talon making it go down.


If there is very little wind I will drop both talons. Like fishing along the bank etc.

If there is enough wind to turn the boat I position 20 feet from where I want my bow to end up and drop one talon and let the wind blow me o my back is at the wind and then drop the second one.

If I want to be parallel to something (sideways to the wind) I drop one talon and use my tm on a low setting or spot lock hold the bow exactly where I want it.

ReelSlow, for me if I was picking where to spend my money on higher end gear I would overspend on the shallow water anchors vs the trolling motor. Again, that is just me since I tend to fish in shallower bodies of water and enjoy that type of fishing more. If I was an offshore focused angler and rarely fished shallow I would overspend on a trolling motor. Of course, I overspent on both but found that I use the spot lock less than the Talons.

Uh.... what?

Sorry, but this is completely wrong. A boat held by one power pole is anchored in one tiny point the size of a quarter. You will pivot in the slightest breeze.
