Attwood Pro Series Rod Holder
This is a tough review, because I like the rod holder. It's user friendly and durable.
Unfortunately, I have issues with the rail mount adapter, which I will review seperately. I purchased two rod holder kits (which come with the 360 mount) and also two rail adapters to mount on my Ranger rails. The stainless lock nuts that came with the adapters were poor quality. One nut stripped on entry and two others stripped trying to take them off. I ended up drilling them out and scarred my 360 mounts in the process. It was pretty disappointing after spending all that money and now I wish I would've tried another brand. Luckily I had some of my own stainless hardware to at least finish the install.
I contacted Attwood with my issue twice and still haven't gotten a response.

Looks the part
Have not yet installed these rod holders but have done the planning. looks like an easy install. Nice solid construction. I ordered 4 unit but one of them did have a molding defect on it. it does not affect the operation of the holder just looks a bit scrappy. still good value for money.

really great for catfishing
I use these for catfishing and trolling crankbaits and jigs. They take a little getting used to to be able to remove the rod quickly for the hookset but not a problem anymore. These dudes held up to some seriously large catfish and kept on ticking right along with my timex watch.

good holder for the money
I have 3 of these holders and they work great for me. They are very adjustable and even my big cat poles fit in them with no problems.
