Power-Poles anchors are powered by an advanced operating system, namely the C Monster Control System. This technology adds features to your Power-Pole anchor that allow you to fine-tune your boat for any conditions and for your specific style of angling. You can download the FREE C Monster app on any Android or IOS device – giving you immediate and customisable control of your Power- Pole anchor directly from your mobile phone! All Power-Pole products come standard with hardware for transom- mount. However, if your boat cannot accommodate a transom mount (the requirement is a completely flat transom with 5”X6.5” free space); we then offer adapter plates (sold separately) that are installed on either the jack-plate or behind the motor plate. A lot of boats have TWO Power-Poles installed. Recreational anglers can make do with only one. However, if you do not want to swing with the current and need precise positioning- then you should get two! Each Power-Pole anchor adds only 13 to 27 pounds to your transom-allowing you to maintain speed and performance. The engineers designed Power-Pole to deploy downwards and out of your way, allowing you to fish 360 degrees around your boat. And if you happen to drive off with your Power-Pole spike down, it might hurt your pride a little, but that’s just about it. With a hydraulic system that disengages automatically when you start moving, your transom is always safe and secure. If you have the correct tools, you can install your Power-Pole anchors yourself. But we always recommend using a professional installer. Feel free to contact us for a referral to an approved installer.
