If you are a kayak angler who has been searching for a good mounting option before you purchase that new fish finder, you will be happy to hear that Tallon has updated their “Elite Socket” for Lowrance DSI models.

For Immediate Release - 21 August 2012

Tallon has released the latest update of its Elite Socket for Lowrance, which now incorporates connectivity for Lowrance DSI (Down Scan Imaging) models in the Mark and Elite Series of fishfinders and chartplotter/fishfinders.

“This update of the Tallon Lowrance Socket accommodates connectivity for the higher specification Lowrance DSI units. The Tallon Socket with accompanying RAM Mount is the perfect marine electronics mounting solution for those who want to spec their vessel with higher end systems such as the DSI,” says Tallon General Manager, Duncan Good.

Available in DSI and standard versions, the Tallon Elite Socket can be fitted virtually anywhere on a boat, kayak or personal watercraft (PWC), and is wired to the Lowrance transducer and comes with a 12V socket as standard. It lets users simply attach their Lowrance Mark & Elite Series units to RAM mounts and plug them in to a flush Tallon Elite Socket in seconds.

Whether the user is fishing from a kayak, PWC, a centre console or a bass boat, the Elite Socket with Lowrance connectivity, will appeal to a wide variety marine users who want to easily remove or relocate their Lowrance Mark & Elite Series sounder for either practicality or security purposes.

“Fisherman can quickly plug in their Lowrance DSI unit to where they need it, no matter where on the boat that is, and it also means there will no longer be any loose cables or ugly permanent mounts cluttering the boat, a feature that will make the product very attractive to the Kayak market as well.”

When the Lowrance units aren’t needed there are hundreds of Tallon and RAM accessories to take their place - from simple hooks to drink and rod holders to a wide range of powered attachments or the latest iPad mount. Just plug in the required accessories and change them out to get the most out of your vessel.

 

Pricing and Availability

The Tallon Elite Socket will be sold as a complete mounting package for DSI and standard models online, including the new RAM Mount for Lowrance (1” or 1.5” options) and the Lowrance Transducer Extension Cable, retailing from USD$99.95/NZD$129.95.
