HOLD YOUR GROUND. Built with the legendary performance and durability of a Minn Kota, Talon delivers a fast, secure hold to keep you on top of fish in shallow water. It's the ultimate weapon in the battle for boat positioning. Made of marine-grade extruded anodized-aluminum, Talon can withstand a harsh, corrosive saltwater environment as well as the pounding waves of a freshwater river or lake. Operating from the boat's existing battery setup, Talon vertically deploys the spike without fish-spooking noise. Additionally, the indestructible spike, made with fiberglass reinforced composite material, is guaranteed for life.

Speed
With lightning-fast deployment at the push of a button, Talon makes every second count.
Fast Deploy -- Talon's spike moves quietly through the water, faster than the competition.
Automatic Deploy -- Auto Up/Down lets you deploy Talon by tapping a button on your wireless remote, so you don't have to hold it down and wait.
Two-Stage Deployment -- Talon utilizes a sequential deployment that quickly and quietly moves the spike vertically, so it causes minimal disruption at the bottom and doesn't interfere with your lines.

Power
No matter the conditions, you can stand your ground with the heavy-hitting, relentless power of Talon.
2X Anchoring Force -- Built with nearly double the force of the competition, so you can power  in for the most secure hold on the water.
Auto-Drive -- The Auto-Drive feature powers the spike into the bottom with three successive hits, using increased force on each hit.
Rough Water Mode --  In heavy chop, activate Rough Water Mode, which performs three Auto-Drive sequences at 10 second intervals for an even stronger hold.
Built-in Wave Absorption -- Talon enables your boat to move up or down without affecting the anchor. It works like built-in floating suspension to keep you locked  to the bottom, even in rough water conditions

Stealth
Anchor down without spooking fish, thanks to Talon's quiet design.
Simple Design -- Built with minimal moving parts and no hinge points, Talon starts quiet  and stays quiet.
Noise Dissipation -- The innovative design prevents noise from being emitted below the water or through the hull, where the fish can hear it.

Easy Installation
Talon is as easy to install and adjust as a trolling motor.
Built Smart -- Talon's space-saving, lightweight design is easy to install, and doesn't require messy, complicated hydraulic pumps and hoses.
Versatile Adjustments -- A Minn Kota Quick-Release bracket enables Talon to slide up and down or pivot up to 30 degrees; to easily accommodate any transom angle. You can also easily remove it when not in use.

LED Depth Indicator
Track anchor depth at a glance, with LED lights on the unit that quickly show you how far down you're deployed in one foot increments.

Rough Water Mode
When the winds pick up, activate Rough Water Mode, which performs the Auto-Drive sequences at 10 second intervals for an even stronger hold.

Rugged Construction
Each Talon model is built with saltwater-tested corrosion resistance, thanks to a marine-grade, extruded aluminum body.

Deployment Notification Alarm
If you turn your engine on while the spike is deployed, a Deployment Notification Alarm alerts you that the anchor is down to avoid damage.

Standard Wireless Remotes
Two wireless remotes come standard to give you push-button control of Talon from anywhere on the boat.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy To Have It's great to have and use when you are shallow enough to use it and are fishing a spot meticulously. It's also great when you have to retie your bait and don't want to drift too far from your fishing area or have to do double duty on the trolling motor when you retie. It even works good to put the boat on shore and anchor to keep it in place. July 15, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Have had it just over a year It was replaced after a few months after it stuck in the down position by BPS. Several months later in the shop for repairs, stuck down again. Once repaired after a few months it is now back in the shop stuck down again. I love the fact it doesn't have all the hydralics the Power Pole has, just wish it didn't break down so often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Needs improvement The Talon is a product that works well but needs improvement. Mine gets stuck on the mud quite often. Sometimes I have to get out of the boat to help it get unstuck with my hands or rocking the boat sideways. In my opinion the motor is powerful enough to get it 1 or 2 ft down into the mud but not powerful to get it up. It may need a stronger motor or upward force. Last time I used it got stuck on the down position and something inside the metal mechanism got bent. I couldnt get unstuck so had to use the motor to break the composite shaft to get the boat moving, then since the metal mechanism goes down about 4 ft, I had to unscrew the talon from the boat on the water to prevent it from damaging it or the boat as I was getting back to the ramp.. The talon service specialist closest to me 2 and 1/2 hour drive said "they are getting talons for service every day". He recommended the power pole better. I would call the authorize service specialists that repair both products to compare and for advise. Good luck! September 18, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible company I have the 8' model on my Key West 210 BR. I've had issues with this anchor since day one. The anchor got stuck in the down position the very first time I tried to use it and it hasn't been right since. I've contacted the company and nothing... they really don't care about the customer what so ever. The only way I'd buy this product is if the Bass Pro extra coverage was purchased with it.. so you can return it to them and not have to deal with Minn Kota. Minn Kota seems to think that 57.5 mile , one way trip is satisfactory for "their" repair people to look at it. 4 Mechanics and the owner of the dealer are not enough "word" for this company. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. I wouldn't buy this product again nor would I recommend it to anyone. Keep your money and buy a Power Pole, it's cheaper, better and well you don't have to deal with Minn Kota. My talon got stuck the first time, Got home it worked fine in the driveway that day. Next time I was out, the talon worked but would not hold had to swim after the boat twice, tried the talon at the beach a few weekends ago and it wouldn't work period, went out this past Sunday and wouldn't work period. It does work in the boat yard and in my driveway, but not when I need it, in the water!! August 28, 2012

A: 
If you have a jack plate it would be good to get the universal mounting bracket. Bass Pro Shops carries it. It is anywhere from $229-$269. The Universal jack plate bracket is easy to install and can be made to do about anything you want to do with it. It can be used on either port or starboard sides. If you don't have a jack plate you would need a sandwich bracket that goes between the motor and transom. It would be a much harder install with resealing bolts etc.

A: 
The Talon will stick up about 2 foot above your out board motor. The overall hight will depend on how high your trailer runners have the boat bottom off the floor. On 8'4" models installed 4" up from bottom of hull they should be 5'4" from bottom of hull.

A: 
First, you can buy a mounting plate that allows it to be tilted 30 degrees for going into and out of the garage. If that's not enough you can raise and lower it quite a bit with no tools. If that's not enough you can take it completely off easily with no tools.

The Talon has great holding power. I use mine on the Calcasieu and Sabine Rivers in southwest Louisiana. These rivers are affected by tides. When I put my Talon down it holds me firmly in place in heavy current.

A: 
Doubt it will hold, way too many rocks on the bottom and it will not penetrate enough to hold you in the current, it will just drag down the river

From my experience with the talon, it did not stop my boat. The spike just drags on the bottom and you cannot drive it in any further.
