Attwood Rod Holder
I bought this rod holder to mount onto my kayak to go fishing and it works well so far. The complaints i have with it is that it came with NO bolts to mount it and the rod isnt held very snug inside it. The local hardware store had what i needed nuts, bolts, and washers wise, but other than that, it works good. Its bigger than the picture makes it seem but very light weight. Easy to diassemble for transportation. Mount only sits up 2" or so off the deck (see pictures). Would recommend to any person looking to mount a rod in front of themself while in a kayak.

I bought this to replace an old rod holder. It's perfect for multi-use applications. Tough enough to troll for muskies and perfectly fine for holding my crappie ultra-light while I'm sipping a cold one. Easy to mount in the base. Like the capability to position it at any angle I prefer. Great for the price, too.

good rod holder
I have used these rod holders for several years now with no problems at all. A must have for a catfish boat.

I have had Atwood rod holders in the past. Still had two when I bought these. However they were about 10 years old. The difference I could see immediately between the older model and the newer version is smoothness of action. The collar lock on the older model from day one was always a little stiff and clunky while these newer ones slide very easily and smoothly. The wonders of "space-age" plastics. Atwood didn't change the mounting base shaft lock pattern from the old days, so the new one fits the older bases I have in the boat. I can't speak to the durability of the new material yet, but if it lasts like the older stuff, I'm a happy man...
