    This holder works great for me. It holds my fishing rod very securely. I use this holder for fishing from my kayak. I can keep my hands on the paddle and reach the rod quickly and easily with this holder.

    This holder has a rubber strap to lock in your rod if you want. I personally don’t use that feature much since the holder does a very good job of securing the rod with gravity alone. Also, by not using the strap, I can take the rod out quickly if a fish hits the line.

    I looked at other holders, and while some were less expensive, they all seemed inferior to this one.

    I got a different base (the #241 Mount, see link at bottom of this review) later to avoid the obvious large hole I would have to drill (not just for the screws but the shaft also).

    The left-right rotating neck feature is nice to position the holder just how you want it. I don’t change it much once I get it set, but it’s invaluable to get it into the right initial position. It stays put by friction alone, but it is very secure.

    The twist for up-down, locks very securely with a thumb wheel. Again, I don’t change it much once I get it set, but it’s invaluable.

    Regarding my setup, I didn’t want to drill holes in my kayak, so I rigged up a system. I loaded a picture of my system to the “customer images”. It’s the yellow kayak. This system is basically the holder mounted to a board and then bungee strapped to my kayak. The bungee straps were the default straps already on my kayak. The board I chose was a “plastic” board for outdoor decking applications sold at my local home store. It was strong and waterproof.

    While this setup enables flexibility of positioning and no holes, it is slightly less solid than drilling into the ‘yak. If you’re catching huge lunkers that strike super hard maybe this bungee setup won’t work for you. I have caught some pretty big fish that have hit hard though, so maybe getting carried away isn’t needed. For me this bungee setup worked well because I was fishing casually and I could move or eliminate it entirely. For example, a day without fishing or when the kayak is on the car racks.

    I would definitely buy this holder again, it has worked really well for me.

    I purchased this rod holder for use in a sit in kayak and mounted it in a flush holder just forward of the cockpit. Its a very well made product and serves it purpose very well. I did have to purchase a mini rod holder extension in order to have enough clearance for the butt of my rod when the rod holder is turned parallel to the yak.

    Rigged my Kayak with this mount and Rod Holder to serve dual purpose for Spinning, casting and if possible, Fly Rod holder. It is well made, convenient to operate and sturdy. Good Products Scotty put forth.
