Minn Kota introduces the new Realtree MAX-5 Talon shallow-water anchor – ideal for the outdoorsman who loves the water as much as the woods. The MAX-5 camo pattern will be available this fall on 10- and 12-foot Talon models.
Recognized by many as the best boat control and positioning tool in the game, the Talon anchor puts you on the fish and keeps you there with legendary Minn Kota ruggedness and exclusive innovations unlike any other shallow-water anchor. Talon’s new camo design makes the quietest and strongest anchor on the water stand out while blending in. To see how Talon holds up to rigorous testing against flamethrowers, shotguns, cage fighters and more, visit the Talon Torture Chamber at talontorturechamber.com.
Anchoring in hard bottom isn’t the same as anchoring into mud. With Talon, you can choose between multiple modes to ensure the right hold and fast, easy anchor retraction.
- Auto-Drive Mode: Powers the spike into the bottom with three increasingly aggressive hits.
- Soft Bottom Mode (On 10′ and 12′ Talons only): For less aggressive anchoring – and easier anchor retraction – in water with a muddy or silted bottom.
- 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.
As an added bonus, the Talon is as easy to mount as a trolling motor thanks to Minn Kota’s rugged Universal Modular Adapter Brackets that let you configure your Talon to the exact orientation you want.
The Talon is loaded with impressive features to make your day on the water both productive and enjoyable.
