    Weight

    Anyone know now the weight of the 8' talon or power pole. I've been thinking about getting one but my boat is already a bit heavy in the back.

    Our heaviest model (10ft Blade) is only 35.7 lbs completely installed but only 27.7 lbs on the transom. The 8ft Blade is only 30.9 lbs completely installed and only 22.9 lbs on the transom.

    If you are looking to really save weight, the Pro2 or Sportsman2 may be better at about 27 lbs installed and only 19 lbs on the transom for the 8ft models.

    Our side mount adapter brackets are about 5 lbs a piece or 10 lbs for a dual kit. There is an additional brace that is required for use with the 10 ft Blade only that will add an additional 2.5 lbs.

    Please let me know if there is any other questions you may have.

    I just added 2 Power Pole Sportsman 2s to my Basscat Sabre FTD and they had zero impact on my holeshot and top speed. I figure the pair were just under 70lbs and they allowed me to ditch my 20lb anchor that I never used anyways.

    I've been running them for just over a week and they're awesome.

    Hey, just a note, the Talon spec chart doesn't include the weight of the support bracket or a tilt bracket if you use one. I just installed dual 10' Talons on a Triton 21x and with a full fuel tank, live well on the Port side full, 5 fish, and No co-angler, it took a much longer time to plane out than I like. So my thought to adjust was to move trolling batterys forward. I have a 36volt system so if I move the 3 battery's it should counter the Talons. Any thoughts from others if that would help/work?
