Taco Marine’s carbon fiber outrigger poles won an Innovation Award at this year’s Miami International Boat Show in February, and for good reason.
Carbon fiber laminates can withstand more load cycles and are lighter than aluminum, the material most commonly used for outrigger poles. A patent-pending swivel roller mechanism lets live baits or artificial lures have a more natural swimming action. $699 (10-foot Center Rigger Single) to $1,999 (20-foot Outrigger Pair).
