Works exactly as described! Goes on the bottom of your Scotty holder and attaches to your track. Great alternative to drilling holes in your kayak. Highly recommend!

Typical very good Scotty build quality. Fits great on Wildy tracks, BUT Not quite strong enough for trolling - especially on the port side. Using Scotty Baitcaster rod holders, no matter how strongly I tightened it (as tight as possible without being stupid and risking damage), it wasn't tight enough to stay put. Using a light action 7 foot spinning rod with 6lb line, even with a light drag setting, the torque was enough to rotate the mount rearward before the drag would give line. Not as bad on the starboard side, because the torque worked to TIGHTEN the mount- but I didn't feel it was a strong enough mount to trust for any fishing tough enough for medium action freshwater tackle and light line. For trolling (bass, GL trout and steelhead, etc) I will be staying with "standard" Scotty 241 mounts on my rails. They are bombproof. These 438's will be great for rodholders used for still fishing, small fish such as panfish or stocked trout, and for things like light mounts or camera mounts, anything which does not require a great amount of strength. I bought two, and I'm sure they will find homes on my kayaks, just not for quick-release trolling rod holders as I had hoped.

this is the way to go! forget ram ball mounts (they move a lot when hit) so satisfied with this adapter. it is substantially well built for scotty products. i have both ram and scotty products and scotty is the way to go! i use it on my 2014 pro angler
