Down East Rod Holder - Standard with Single Clamp Mount
Top Notch Rod Holder
I purchased and have fished with two of these rod holders.
I have a 13 ft Smokercraft and put them on the rail. I did have to put a wood block so that it would clamp to the rail. Not falut of product.
I did put a little oil so that the parts moved better.
But I sure like them and they work great.
I even have bought the thrid one so that I can use one on the stern of my boat when I have two others on board.

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!

All metal construction, easy to use clamp, great adjustments and functions better than I expected. The rod is held secure until you lift it straight up, then the holder easily releases. This is great for lazy fishing with that 2nd pole while I cast with the other one. I did think it was a bit spendy, but am 100% satisfied and would recommend this item to others.

My favorite rod holder
I have owned six boats in my lifetime and have had these rod holders on all of them.
My father used them on his boat before me fishing Sebago lake in Maine for salmon and if it was good enough for him, its good enough for me.
What I especially like about them is you can adjust the angle for your rods.Much sturdier than some plastic holders out there.
