Taco outriggers

PostTue Jul 29, 2014 9:56 am

Looking to add outriggers to my 222 Sportfish. Already have outrigger poles...15', 1 1/8".... Are Taco 170 mounts strong enough, or worth the money to step up to the 280s?

Go with the Grand Slam 280 of 270's. I have them and they work great. I have the 170 as a center rigger mount with an 8 pole.

I have the 270s and they work great. No problems with them at all.

Thanks! I went w/ the 280's...simple install and seem very strong. Used Taco's sleeves to reduce from 2 1/2 to 2 1/8 ...found the sleeves to be too tight in the mounts, but after a little sandpaper and steel wool to the plastic, fits fine now.
