Power-Pole anchor systems are on almost every shallow-water tournament boat. Thanks to their Micro anchor, their systems are now on most tournament kayaks, too. This year, they’ve added the Ultra-lite stakeout pole weighing considerably less than their heavy-duty stake. Using Power-Pole’s Hollowcore technology the tubular pole can still hold 1500 pounds. A wide handle at one end drives the sharp point at the other into the sand or mud. Remove the handle, and there is a ¼ 20 threaded bolt to mount a camera. The pole includes a six-foot, 3/8-inch dock line to secure the kayak to the pole. The Ultra-lite is available in six and eight-foot lengths and works with the Micro anchor system.
