Tite-Lok Black Widow Spider Ultra Rigging System
Top Rail To Short
The top rail on this rod holder is only 16" long. Long enough to hold 4 rods as long as they are pointed straight forward. With the 16" rod rail there isn't enough room to fan the rods 180*. They sell a 24" rod holder but you have to order it separate at an additional cost plus send the 16" back to them. Not happy with the 16" . I was told that the 16" was the most popular rod rail, but when I tried to order the 24" holder they told me there was a 4-8 week backlog. Wonder why? I would only go with the 24".

ultimate rod holders
I purchased 3 sets of these. Two for the front of the boat and one for the back with a extra base to move to either side. I have two kids and these work GREAT when catfishing or when i'm trolling for lunker slabs. Get these sturdy rod holders, they are costly, but for the convenience of having the rod by your side and the kids wont lose the rods when they are away from their rods. Heavy duty aluminum construction will last for years to come. Very easy to install on my tracker TXW. THANKS BASS PRO AND Tite-Lok for a awsome product.

Tite-Lok® Black Widow Spider Ultra Rigging System
I bought two of these rod holders to use for trolling crank baits for Crappie. They are very well made and they work great. I vary the rod tip height and I troll three rods with one a long line, one a medium distance line and one line only about 15 feet behind the boat. I have really increased my daily catch using this system. When trolling I catch Crappie, Bass, and Catfish so it's always a surprise until I see the fish.
I highly recommend this product. I also bought 2 extra base plates so I have one at each corner of the boat at the bow and stern. That way I can use two at the front if fishing alone or on one the front and back of the boat if fishing with someone.
When I'm just Bass fishing they are easy to remove just leaving the base plates on the deck.

They're fast, they're light, and they're awesome!
I just got these, and they are very impressive. The fit and finish is top-notch. The holders themselves are amazingly strong - way stronger than I expected for aluminum of that diameter.
The adjustments work great. I only wish the t-bar was longer. I want to use it for trolling larger reels off the back. As it is, it's perfect for smaller reels.
