    Power Poles

 I've read all the benefits of the Power Poles, but I'd like to know the negatives associated with them before plunking down that much money. Any comments?

   Oh yea from stp357 #17928  7/21/2012 4:41:11 PM
 One more question, would dual PPs get in the co-anglers way very much?

   I have dual power poles..... from kevengineer #17626  7/21/2012 8:55:29 PM
 I don't think there is a negative to them. I always lower the poles a bit if they are bothering the co-angler. It's as easy as pushing the foot switch.

 most boat owners fishing for money don't give a damn about the guy in the back. Hes just there for the ride.

   They are great to hang the American Flag....Waste of money from humminbird #11206 #11206  7/22/2012 2:27:35 PM
 ...to look like the Pros. It more BS than anything else. If you live in Fla. and fish shallow, then by all means buy the flag pole. Negative: Guy in a recent tourney lunched his boat with the poles down and damage ($$$) his flag poles. Oh gosh.

 They do get in the way of the non boater, but I didn't buy my boat to accommodate the non boater... They will learn to fish around them. If you fish water 8 ft or less you will love them.. Don't just buy one, you need two for best results... Power pole is making a ten foot version now

 Maybe the guys will stop fishing in the back of boats with poles in the way and all the semi-pro guys will have to fish together in draw tournaments. I would just not pay the guy at the end of the day and see what the tournament director says when I claim the poles are in my way and keep me from catching enough fish to win. As for accommodating the non boater maybe all tournaments should be fished giving the non boater his half day in front like we used to do.

   Just buy a boat from fishintechnician #13154 #13154  7/24/2012 9:36:05 PM
  The best way to make sure you get ample time in the front of the boat is to buy a boat... It's ridiculous to expect a boat owner to set up his boat up for a guy that didn't help pay for it... Skill will allow a non boater to fish around the poles...You sound a tad bit bitter Dwight, good luck finding someone to argue with I'm done with this one... My response will be limited the original question regarding power poles

   fishintechnician: you might want to do the following.... from humminbird #11206 #11206  7/26/2012 10:02:04 PM
 Since you don't give a damn about the non-boater, I suggest you fish by yourself. Of course you will have to pay all the expenses. Isn't this the reason you want a non-boater to help cover cost. You are greedy bastard. Oh, the original question pretend to negatives. So, you got negatives that you don't like.


   Not worried about expenses from fishintechnician #13154 #13154  7/27/2012 3:57:36 PM
  I bought my boat with the intention of paying all the expenses myself. I allow people to fish with me, i don't need them. I try to accommodate my non-boaters, but I don't set my boat up based on them. Besides I do fine paying for my own expenses... Again, a man has to set his boat up the way he wants so he can enjoy his $50K investment. I don't set my truck up based on a passenger. Greedy;excessively or inordinately desirous of wealth, profit.. This doesn't quite describe a guy who isn't soliciting for a non-boater. You may want to edit that reply. You can't live your life trying to please other people, there will always be someone to complain. Besides, you and Dwight are the ones attacking, just because you don't agree with what I wrote. I'm assuming your are both adults, so you should know that you can't control what other people believe or write. Talk to the guy that asked for your opinion.

   Well stp357 there you have it from fishintechnician #13154 #13154  7/27/2012 4:08:43 PM
 The caliber of guys I fish with don't complain about my pole, but some people will obviously be pissed off that you had the nerve to put them on your boat as it you purposely did it to piss them off. Oh the other issue you have to consider is putting your boat in the garage. I have a Talon so I have to lower mine via quick release handles each time I put it up. If you get power poles you will be able to push a button and let them down some. If you forget you will be tearing something up.
