Down-East Rod Holders Designed to allow you to grab the rod and pull back quickly in a hook-setting motion. The die-cast rod holder itself actually opens up when the rod is pulled backwards 3" or more. The Down-East rod holders are adjustable to any horizontal or vertical position and made of high-strength, non-rusting alloy castings treated to resist corrosion.
The Salty S-10 rod holder is great for heavy fishing. Holds up to 1-3/8" diameter rod including rods with triggers or pistol grip. Great for fish up to 85 lbs and holds up to 100 lbs test line. Made in USA.

These S10's are are great for row trolling, as well as for boats that dont have rails to mount on.

This thing is what u want if u have an aluminum boat.
The salty is fully adjustable and was down 50+ feet with a dipsy with no problems.
easy to use but......
early one morning while setting it up i overtightened the clamp with my pliers and...snap. the threaded rod broke. totally my bad. had to go to brafasco to find the (7/16) threaded rod ($12) and two nuts to weld onto the threaded rod ($2). Greased em up and works better than new. hefty setup!!

is this designed so i can use it on a boats gunwale ? and when clamped is there enough clearance so the holder doesn't come in contact with the gunwale, i had another model and interferance was an issue.
The S-10 is designed to clamp to gunwales. It has two mounting positions depending how the clamps fit on your gunwale. This design allows for adjustment of the holder without interferance with the gunwale. Hope this is helpful.
