There are many flaws with this item including, but not limited to, the design.  I received mine with the plating on the bottom cross-piece peeling and oxidizng.  The cross-piece spins like a helicopter it is so loose.  I tried to peen the rivet to tighten it up to no avail.  There are no cleats, points or anything else to secure this to the ice.  I could bury it in slush and wait for it to freeze, but then how do i extract it from the frozen ice.  Lack of snow on the lake rules that out as an anchor.  On bare ice the wind blows it around and blows it over.  Yes, it does a fine job of holding the rod, but I'd hate to have a fish strike while I was checking another pole/tipup:  the entire apparatus would go down the hole along with your rod and reel with nothing to stop it.

Do yourself a favor, spend an extra $2.70 and buy the Tag Alder Tackle Dickey Rod Saver.  I've seen this in action and it actually works.  Or build yourself a PVC tip-down.


Pros: None

Cons: unstable, blows around and over, cheap plating

Best Uses: Display a model ship on it.

Best Fishing Pole Holder.... EVER!!!

About Me:

This is by far the best fishing pole holder out there, especially for the $$.  I like the fact that the pole just sits it a cradle, rather than having to grab your pole out of a holder that sometimes gets hooked up and detours you from setting your hook.  This pole holder allows your to grab your pole and lift it straight up and hook that toad!!! Only draw back, when it gets really cold I have had the orange plastic cradle break.


Pros: Price, Pole just sits in a cradle, Efficiency, Keeps rod off the ice, Folds down for portability.

Cons: Orange plastic can break in very cold weather.

Best Uses: Ice Fishing

Would you recommend this product?  Yes

About Me:

This holder works very well.  I like the fact that it folds up and takes very little room. In West Virginia we are allowed to use only 2 rods when ice fishing for trout.  I use this holder for a rod using PowerBait and jig with the other rod. It's not made of the strongest metal so care must be taken when folding it.  I don't think it can be beaten for the price.


Pros: It works, Small size, Folds, Keeps rod off the ice

Cons: Not the strongest metal

Best Uses: none

There have been several rod holders i've tried over the years and they've finally made a product that works the best for ice fishing. It craddles the rod and reel so that you can grab it when a fish strikes.

Pros: none

Cons: none

Best Uses: none
