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 5 out of 5 by BEST INVENTION EVER!!!!!! BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT AND WAS SKEPTICAL UNTIL I TRIED IT ON THE WATER. THIS MAY VERY WELL BE THE GREATEST INVENTION EVER AND POSSIBLY THE BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE EVER MADE FOR FISHING ACCESSORIES. I RECOMMEND THE MINN-KOTA TALON FOR ANYONE THAT OWNS A BOAT. February 27, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't Work The Talon said it was more powerful and faster than the competition. My tournament partner has a different shallow water anchor on his boat and we never used my Ranger in tournaments last year because I could not anchor. I thought this would work, but when the anchor hit the bottom the unit would stop going down. I kept hitting the down button to try and put the spike down harder but it won't let you do that. Luckily the guys at Tracker traded me out for Sportsman's Edition Anchor. We will see how that works. January 17, 2011

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.
