We knew it was time we developed a transducer deployment arm that is truly designed for the task, and the SwitchBlade Transducer Deployment Arm is exactly that. With a single product you can attach the SwitchBlade to either your YakAttack CellBlok, deck mount, or on a track system. We designed the blade to minimize gurgle and resistance, making the SwitchBlade the most efficient transducer arm on the market. The patented arm folds up compactly. No more cumbersome, rigid arm to deal with. And for the angler that really wants to dial it in to fit their boat perfectly, we made the length of the arms customizable and can easily be cut to length to accommodate nearly any kayak on the market.
Unlike other transducer deployment arms of the past the new SwitchBlade Transducer Arm from YakAttack is focused on speed and adjustability. Featuring a hydrodynamic blade design the SwitchBlade causes less water turbulence resulting in a faster and less noisy over-the-side transducer mounting solution. Whether the SwitchBlade Transducer Arm is mounted on top of a YakAttack CellBlok or on the gunwale of your kayak the depth of the transducer is easily adjustable and gives you the ability to get the transducer deep enough for your side scan fish finder. If you don't need the full length of the SwitchBlade simple remove the middle arm and now you have a customized solution. To deploy or retrieve the transducer arm the SwitchBlade features a unique tubular design and multi pivot allowing for easy articulation in and out of the water.
In 2018, we launched the LockNLoad™ Mounting System for rod holders and fish finder mounts and we knew we had to find a way to integrate our new mounting system into the SwitchBlade Transducer Deployment Arm. By replacing the included knob used to attach the SwitchBlade base to the track with the the LockNLoad Mounting base it gives you the ability to mount your fish finder and transducer arm in one compact system.
