Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris Sturdy but lacking
I mounted this rod holder to my kayak. It did not come with any mountain hardware so I had to dig through my tool kit and hope I had a few screws that fit. I used it on my first fishing trip and was catching fish almost every cast. I left the rubber security latch open and was easily able to grab the rod to set the hook and place the rod back when needed. It is very sturdy when mounted and I never had to worry about the plastics breaking. When it was paddling and trolling I was disappointed to find this rod holder does not have the capacity to swivel like others I have. This limits your ability to run your line off different sides of your kayak or canoe. This is the reason ill be returning the rod holder. It gets 5 stars for quality or workmanship but 2 stars because it will not swivel and does not come with mounting hardware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stonecrab Fine!
Purchased this for my new kayak. Serves it purpose good, I use a spinning rod with it.
Just check the grip diameter of your rod to make sure it will fit. The but end cap fitting of one of rods rubs going in and out.....a little too tight, but will work fine with all others. I shopped around, good pricing at Dick's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fish-work-fish The best on the market
The best on the market. I have 4 of them mounted on my tandem kayak and they get used all the time. Never a single problem with them. Fully adjustable; means I can angle the rods out while trolling lures, angle them forward while paddling or angled vertically while casting a lure or live bait. Very easy to install! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

I've got one for all three kayaks. My son and girlfiend just love them. Great for freeing up your hands to net a fish or paddle around. Sturdy durable design make them indistructable!
