Power-Pole Micro Anchor vs. Anchor Pin (Best Kayak Anchor)
Thinking about getting a Power-Pole Micro Anchor?
I’ve been using one for the past few months and I’ve enjoyed it.
But it’s not perfect, and it’s not right for everyone.
Another option is an anchor pin, so in this video, you’ll see the top pros and cons of each of these options so you can choose which one is best for you.

Power-Pole Micro Anchor vs Anchor Pin [VIDEO]
Both of these anchoring systems have their pros and cons.
Here are some of the more important ones:
Power-Pole Micro Anchor Pros:
- Easy to use (has a wireless remote control you can use with one hand if you’re fighting a fish)
- Stops you quickly
- You can stop on hard bottom
Power-Pole Micro Anchor Cons:
- Price (about $700-800)
- You’re stuck in whatever direction the current or wind pushes you
- Battery powered (if battery dies or goes bad you’re out of luck)
- It’s noisy
Anchor Pin Pros:
- Price (under $100)
- Anchor trolley lets you move positions
- Not battery powered
Anchor Pin Cons:
- Harder and slower to use than the Micro Anchor
- Can’t stop on hard bottom
Both the Power-Pole Micro Anchor and anchor pins are great anchoring systems, but one may be a better option for you.
The Micro Anchor is easier and quicker to use, but is more expensive, noisier, and doesn’t allow you to swing your kayak into position.
Anchor pins are cheaper, silent, and let you move positions thanks to an anchor trolley, but are slower to deploy.
