Driftmaster® Pro and L'il Pro Rod Holder Bases
Seems to be a good quality product with heavy duty scres for attachment, only downside I see is the threads for the lanter/rod holder are a bit rough and hard to start.

Driftmaster rod holders
Very good for attaching securely to bow rail. Very easy to install

Very good product
I have used these rod holders for several years and they hold up great.
Just remember to order bases along with the holder.

Can't beat it..
I've hooked some real hum-dingers on these things and they haven't budged (stripers/flathead).
I was a bit worried to use these at first because i've heard of some bad experiences with screws backing out and leaving holes in the boat.
I called Tracker Service (I have a 2011 Tracker Pro Team 175TF), and they recommended I use these. They come with the screws so you know your using the right stuff and it is what they use when you pay them to outfit your boat.
I did not pre-drill mine (I wanted it to grab onto as much as it could) and because of that I did strip the head of a few screws. I just dremmelled the screw head and turned it into a flat head and backed it out. I was able to pick up replacements locally.
I honestly can't say enough about these things. I was very scared to drill into my boat but I'm glad i finally manned up and took the plunge. I don't foresee these things going anywhere anytime soon.
Heck, i've hit the dock a few times with a rodholder in one of these and the boat just bounced off.
Highly recommend! Oh, and Bass Pro is the only place i've been that actually includes the screws - Just FYI.
