      User-Selectable Anchoring Modes

      Anchoring in hard bottom isn’t the same as anchoring into mud. Only Talon has User-Selectable Anchoring Modes to give you the perfect hold in any condition.

      STANDARD MODE:Activates the Auto-Drive sequence that powers the spike into the bottom with three increasingly aggressive hits. For most anchoring situations.

      ROUGH WATER MODE: For heavy wind and chop, this mode performs three consecutive Auto-Drive sequences at 10-second intervals for a triple-strength hold.

      SOFT BOTTOM MODE: For less aggressive anchoring – and easier anchor retraction – in water with a muddy or silted bottom.

    • Talon-Multi-Stage-Deploy

    • new-Saltwater-hero

      Saltwater Tough Engineering

      Over 80 years of trolling motor design and testing taught us how to full combat the corrosive effects of saltwater.  And we build that know-how into every Talon, so saltwater won't stand a chance.

    • Talon-Multi-Stage-Deploy

      Auto Up/Down

      Hit the button, then get back to fishing. Only Talon has Auto Up/Down, which makes lowering and raising the anchor as easy as using a car’s automatic windows. Utilizing bottom-sensing technology, Talon automatically knows when it has anchored, so you don’t have to hold down the button and wait.

    • New-Pivoting-Design

      Pivoting Design

      While other anchors limit you to one position, Talon’s Quick Release Bracket enables up and down adjustment, 30° of pivoting, and easy
      removal when Talon’s not in use.

    • Talon-Deployment-Notification

      Deployment Notification Alarm

      Talon’s indestructible composite spike bends but doesn’t break - even if you try to take off while deployed. And if you do that, Talon’s the only anchor with an audible alert to let you know.
