Lake Worth, Fl. (July 20, 2021) – Tigress, the world’s leader in trolling technology, is giving anglers even better control over their spread with the introduction of two new top mounts. The XD Bay Series Top Mount brings precision control to vessels up to 40 feet so they can dial in their spread inshore or off. The XD Crank Top Mount combines speed and precision, letting tournament anglers quickly deploy an effective spread at the first sign of life, current seam, or color break.

Built for everything from Mahi to Marlin, the XD Bay Series Top Mount delivers full-size performance in a package designed for bay boats. The XD Bay Series Top Mount accepts all of Tigress’ world-class XD outrigger poles with 1-1/8” butt diameters in carbon or aluminum. Twenty-four adjustable positions in 15-degree increments stay precisely where you want them to, thanks to Tigress’ XD 316L stainless steel locking design, but stows quickly with HD Spring return. The upper arm will go exactly where you want it as well, with 19 locking positions at 10-degree increments. You don’t need to worry about bridges and trailering, thanks to horizontal stops that maximize clearance.

The XD Crank Top Mount is built to deploy in an instant, giving anglers pinpoint precision that makes the most of fleeting opportunities. The user-friendly folding crank handle with integrated drive brake gets the outriggers out fast, with a stainless steel and bronze-bushed head pivot that guarantees maximum strength and durability. The upper arm is also easily controlled, with a ball-bearing drive system with balance spring assist. The two combine to offer 24 adjustable/locking positions featuring Tigress’ XD 316L stainless steel locking tooth design, including ‘Run’ and ‘Laydown’ position stops and eight optional user-indexable set-up positions.

Built with an extreme duty top plate, upper arm and housings, the XD Crank Top Mount can handle all Tigress XD 1-1/2” butt diameter outriggers (and XD 1-1/8” butt diameter outriggers with an adapter) to 22 feet. The unique ergonomic, invertible 316 stainless steel mirror-polished handle design provides plenty of clearance on soft and hard tops over 2 inches thick, and is built for vessels up to 50 feet. It fits through all standard 3-inch diameter mounting plates and hard-top holes.

Both the XD Bay Series Top Mount and the XD Crank Top Mount is compatible with Tigress’ and other industry-standard 4-inch by 6-inch mounting plates, utilizing four 5/16-inch diameter fasteners. Each is built with fully sealed construction for generations of use utilizing extreme-duty 316L stainless steel and anodized aluminum and feature UV protection. So you can buy with confidence, Tigress backs the new mounts with a three-year limited warranty. The XD Bay Series Top Mount is sold individually; the XD Crank Top Mount comes in pairs.
