I have 3 of these for myself and i order more of these for my friends as they don't know how to order off the internet so i do this for them ,I fish off a river float and when i mount these on the railings of the float . people are pretty much amazed at these and always ask how they can get these I think if i had 20 of these i could sell them myself but i don't want to do this , I do this only for my friends, great product and a fair price. also I am very satisfied with dealing with your company and will use you again
These rod holders were so easy to use and work great for your boat my son and I were surprised at how easy they were I am going to order two more of them soon.
I've had two other Down-East Rod Holders, and they are definitely excellent products made here in America. The ability to quickly pull up and off your rod from the holder is wonderful innovation. The product is made of cast metal parts, and there is absolutely no non- durable parts parts associated with the holder. It seems that FishUSA.com has the best price for this outstanding product. A major competitor sells the same product for about $10 more. It's solid and somewhat heavy, and a true innovative American product.
My boat came with two of these and that was more than 15 years ago. I'm sure glad I fould then again. They grip your pole like your hand does when it's face up. Push it down and the fingers close on it. Pull up on the rod and the fingers open. There is never a fear that your rod will go over board.. I wish they had a photo of the thing open ready to put the rod in. The wing nut you see merely sets the angle your rod is held at relative to the water. You set it once and never touch it again. It has nothing to do with securing the rod to the holder. Just lift up on the top and it opens like a clam shell. Push it back into the base and the base causes it to close and hold your rod secure. Simply the best design I've ever seen.
Oh almost forgot, you can set BOTH the vertical and horizontal position of the pole relative to the boat. So say your trolling, the you can set it so your rod is 45 degrees up (vertical) and 30 degrees pointed to the back of the boat (horrizontal). The 45 degree ange is set by the wing nut you see and the 30 degree ange is set by the positon you lower the clam shell back into the base.
