Rated 5 out of 5 by muskie45 simple fix Took warning about wing nut damage seriously. Replaced it with hex nut, cut screw and wrapped with tape. Since I don't assemble/reassemble each time, this solved problem. June 4, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill8788 sturdy product A good sturdy product! The ground spike is a little short but holds well. I wrap mine with 550 paracord for added grip on the rod handle. I take it on every catfishing trip. The securing nut is alittle high digging into the rods handle but nothing a dremel can't fix. April 1, 2013

A:...DONT BUY THIS PART...POST AND WINGNUT WILL TEAR UP A RIGG...
A:Yes. I have used it with longer rods. You just have to be careful if you are using long, heavy-duty rods such as those you would fish the surf with. I wouldn't stick a big surf pole with a heavy duty reel into a light-weight aluminum holder. I feel comfortable when the reel is between the fork and the loop end of the holder. I sometimes use rods with a long butt that don't allow this. In that case, I make sure the holder is angled so that the rod is pointing well upward to avoid getting yanked out of the holder. If I'm "dead-sticking" a heavy rod, I make sure the drag is set lightly.
Details:Is the rod angle adjustable on these rod holders?
Details:Just wondering how tall/long is the main spike for this rod holder.
A:About 8-inches from the tip of the fork to the tip of the loop.
Details:before i buy this it item... i noticed under the descripition, it just said ground spike.
and it does not say rod holder included or not included.
that's all i wanted to know, if this item is rod holder with ground spike or just ground spike.
A:holder w/spike but spike is wide and hard to get into the ground if the ground is hard as is in summer
