Rated 5 out of 5 by SierraPeaks EXCELLENT PRODUCT I bought 4 of these rod holders and am completely happy with them. They are built extremely well. There is very little assembly required (2 screws and a reinforcment bar) I love the fact that they can be vertically or horizontally mounted. My only regret is that I didn't buy these holders years ago. Fantastic all the way around. March 11, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4kuchi never need another rod holder! I've had these holders for 25 years, and when I bought another boat I needed to add them to it. They don't break, rust, or malfunction, and the rod comes out with little effort. I like them because I can pull the rod out without standing up or lifting forward to disengage the rod. adjusts to any angle or direction easily. I use both bolt on and clamp on, and am very happy with all models! April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by FormerFishingEditor Must have rod holder I have been using these rod holders for over twenty years now. Unquestionably the best rod holder for the fly fisherman. Also works well with both open and closed faced reels. Simple lift action removes the rod yet it is imposable for a fish to pull a rod out of this holder. February 20, 2013

A:yes, you can rotate it and tilt it.
A:Yes, and you can tilt the position of the rod up and down as well.
A:Yes it can be rotated. There are splines on the part you lift up that fit into grooves on the base. It will not rotate unless it is lifted up.
Details:Is any lubrication needed? I have several of these for a long time. They are getting a little difficult to pull up. I guess I need a block and to clean them
A:I agree, after time the do get more difficult (and noisy) pulling up to release the rod. Try a little wet sandpaper and smooth the oxidization from the friction areas
A:Yes there should be no prolem with this product fitting your 03 Tracker.
Details:Does this model have a system in place to lock the rod in place?
A:Yes, once the rod is in place the holder slides down to a locked position--very simple.
A:It is a gravity lock if you want to call it that. The weight of the rod and holder keeps the rod safe and secure while in the holder.
A:The rod holder utilizes a clamp mechanism around your handle that closes when you put it in the base. The rod will not come out unless you have it pointed down (wouldn't make sense) or you lift the rod straight up.
A:As I use the the Model D 11, as the holder collapes around the rod, it automatically locks the rod in both the veritical angle (up) and the angle relative to the boat direction.
A:Yes. Once you push the jaws that hold your rod down, they automatically lock. Some larger saltwater rods may not fit however.
