Even with the additional anchoring depth, the height of the new Talons does not increase due to the three-stage deployment system. Minn Kota also made the new anchors incredibly quiet, and added models in red, blue, black and silver. The 2014 units feature a new Soft Bottom mode that prevents the spike from being driven too deeply into a sandy or soft-mud bottom. Ten-foot Talons cost $1,849.99; 12-footers cost $1,999.99.
