Default Taco vs Tigress Outrigger poles

I am considering putting a pair of Grand Slam 250's on my boat. I am going to go with 15' x 1 1/2" telescoping poles. I like the blue Tigress poles. Does anyone have any experience with them vs. the Taco poles? I really want the blue ones but I don't want them if there is a big quality difference between them and the Taco's.

I guess it will be the Taco's the Tigress poles will not work with the Taco base.

I think there was a lawsuit a while back because Tigress imitated exacly Taco's patented system or something. We just got a set of the Taco's, and they're nice. Havent fished them yet. I think outrigger bases and poles are pretty much universal. I'd go with the Taco's

I had a pair of 18' Tigress Poles in my Taco Grand Slams and the poles were not too bad but they did break once while running in to the inlet....not good the 15' poles would most likely be fine. They say they won't fit but they did in my case 1 1/2" OD is the same. I currently have lee's 16' x strong poles on my boat...the make poles to fit all brands.

I have one Taco pole and one Tigress pole in my Taco 250's. They seem very similar, maybe EXACTLY the same!
I honestly don't see any difference, so buy the ones you want. And when the Tigress break, don't come B!tchin to me!

Seriously, no difference I can see, buy the BLUE ones.
