Bass Pro Shops Rod Holder Twin Pack
Value for the money!
I have owned several of these and put tem on all of my boats. For the price they are a really great deal. They are super easy to mount. The only downside is that the locking mechanism is not the best. The plastic piece usually pops off if you have them too tight. I usually just take them off and use a wing nut.
I have noticed alot of people stating that these will break on big fish. this is not the case. I think that has to do with user error. I have caught huge catfish and never had a problem.

Good price for 2
These rod holders work great for what they are, but they need to have a taller mast between the floor and the holder, because when installing them on the flush mounts, there isn't enough room to use them with the longer handle fishing poles.

Worth every penny
Well worth the purchase. Intend to get another pair and a surface mount as well. Perfect for the A10 these are mounted on.

You get what you pay for!
First I was disappointed because the brackets only have side mounts and does not give the option for a top mount. Definitely do your research on where you want to place them because like I said before the hole for the mount is on side of base so unless you are attaching to a vertical surface the mounts will point the rod holders themselves left or right.
Second issue is that compared to other manufacturers the gears and design are a little on the fragile side but with that being said I attached them to a cross bar that goes behind my seat and so far so good. I use them to troll and in order to make sure that there is not a lot of stress on rod holders I keep the drag a little lighter than normal so rods don't get pulled out and there is not to much tension.
Will not work with a lot of other systems.
You get what you pay for they will do the job just don't expect them to do the job of a stainless steel rod holder or other more rugged rod holders they will do the job for fresh water fish and light saltwater species.
