Does anyone have any real experience with these yet? I am stuck between a set of raptors and a set of power pole blades.

I just went thru the same decision, and everybody told me that power pole is an excellent company and their customer service is 2nd to none. I got a set of 10’ blades and love them. I haven’t had to test their customer service yet. Good luck

Having raptors installed right now. I’ll have some input after I use them this weekend.

There’s no doubt power pole has excellent customer service! I haven’t had any issues with minn Kota either, tough decision!

Interested in this myself. Ordering my FXR in a couple of months and looking at the Raptors.

I know the customer service bit gets beat to death and folks get tired of hearing it, but PowerPole is literally the best I've ever seen in this regard. They make spares like me feel important and worth their time. 'Poles are also proven tech. I'd lean towards them for now.

They seem a little more "beefed up" and they have a feature that will "re-anchor" you if you start losing your grip. Plus you can network them together with all your other MInn-Kota/Hummunbird accessories

I've found that networking works great unless you go to lake fork where the WWW has not yet been developed in that part of the country...…..

networking in a closed system (your boat) via blu tooth or ehternet has nothing to do with the inner-webbs noidea

Power Pole on my boat. As said, CS is top notch. The product is pretty damn good too! They network with Lowrance stuff too, it’s a good choice if you have Bluetooth capable Lowrance graphs. Russel Marine Products makes a stern light for them, and drift socks are available for them too.

I bought my Blades one year apart from each other. PowerPole changed them cosmetically from the first one to the other one. I called them and they sent me, for free after I offered to pay, all the parts to update the older one to match the newer one.

Picked up my boat today first impression is pretty good. They are super rigid and quiet. Seem like they are going to be just as good if not better then PP.
