I came across these the other day while I was browsing boat gear. A man could save $1000's of dollars by using these instead of Talons or Power Poles. I believe that once you used these a few times you could deploy them as fast or faster than the afore mentioned systems. Also for everything you add to a rig that increases the potential for equipment failure and side lining you and your rig for repairs. These will pretty much eliminate that issue. I could also see where these would save on added weight, battery drain, aerodynamic drag, and hydrodynamic drag coming up on plane. What do you guys think????

Probably work in non-flowing water like lakes if the wind behaved

I figured it would be fine on a soft bottom and OK if you put some weight behind it when you anchor on a hard bottom. Most folks shallow enough to use these won't be in wind or current but back in coves. I can think of one spot I used to fish at home on the Ouachita River where they'd be OK in the current and that is because you are parked on to of a big sand bar and should be able to anchor into that solidly. Unless my next rig comes with shallow water anchors already installed I'm going to give these things a try.....

Let us know how they work!
I'll let you in on a secret (don't let anyone else read this), I'm a TIN man. So, it would probably hold my boat with a 20 knot wind.

Yeah, that's what I thought when I bought a couple two years before I finally bought my first talon. Cheaper for sure. Simpler? What could be simpler than double clicking a button? The problem with the stickpins is having to stop the momentum of a bass boat to be able to push down into the bottom deep enough to hold it. You can't push it in unless you're going straight down and expect it to hold. More times than not I looked at it to see why my boat was drifting and it had pulled out. Your partner has made ten casts while you're trying to anchor and the eight foot pins were only effective for five feet or less so you are not pulling upward. Now that I have installed two 12' talons I found the pins make a decent push pole used in reverse direction. Still they beat having nothing if you simply can't afford talons or power poles. But for simplicity and efficiency once installed you'll wonder how you could ever get by without the pair of talons or power poles.
