In the past, staking up on the flats entailed jamming your expensive push pole into the bottom or stowing that and deploying a stakeout pole. Power-Pole’s shallow-water anchor has made this task as simple as flipping a switch, and the new John Oliverio Signature model is the latest rendition. The pump of the new model is more compact and lighter in weight, as is the unit itself. The aircraft-aluminum outer sheath has a corrosion-resistant finish. Also new to the John Oliverio Signature line is the addition of a 4-foot model for ultra-shallow running boats – 6- and 8-foot models are also offered. The John Oliverio Signature model comes in black, chrome, red, blue or white. 4-foot, $1,350; 6-foot, $1,525; and 8-foot, $1,695. For more information, visit www.power-pole.com.
