I had an 8' pro xl on a 21' Xpress bay boat. Worked real good for shallow water. The sportsman models have a slower, noisier pump, but should work fine otherwise.

You can easily make a redneck powerpole with a c-clamp and a length of pvc pipe.

Power pole is great for shallow water. Mostly used in salt water. If you fish water that shallow go for it. Great for red fishing on the flats. To confirm they are worth the money.

I have been considering one for my pontoon boat. We have a sand beach where we beach it every weekend in the summer. It sure gets anoying having to crank the motor every hour or so and straighten the boat back up. Seems no matter how hard I beach the boat it works loose. There is to much foot traffic in the front of the boat to tie off to anything. What do yall think?

if thats the only reason you need it, you could just tap a piece of pvc down into the sand and tie off to it , couldnt ya, i saw some post on here about a cajun anchor,

I guess I could drive a piece of pvc but could'nt you do that any time you would need a power pole? I am lazy and I also use a trolling motor instead of a paddle. lol. By the way what is a cajun anchor? Thanks

thanks for the post guys, im still debating if the sportsman series is the way to go, they alot cheaper especially buying 2. the pro is high, then the remote extra , looked like the adaptors are 165. each ,,,must be a patent thing going here..
