The YakAttack Zooka Tube Ball Mount without Ball gives you the ability to carry either a casting rod and reel or a spinning rod and reel, all in one unique rod holder. Simply loosen the turn dial on the side of the YakAttack Zooka Tube Ball Mount without Ball and rotate the tube to fit the style of rod and reel you chose to bring with you that day. The YakAttack Zooka Tube Ball Mount without Ball simply mounts to any 1.5" ball style mount. By mounting to a 1.5" ball, the YakAttack Zooka Tube Ball mount without Ball has unparalleled adjustability. You can even stow rods flush against the deck of your kayak with the rod still mounted in the holder! Both ends of the YakAttack Zooka Tube Ball Mount without Ball offer the ability to lock your rod/reel into place so you have the peace of mind that you will not loose your rod/reel while paddling or even while trolling.
I think that this rod holder is great. I have it mounted in my Ride 115 and when paired with the track system I can put the rod in virtually any convenient position that it would need to be in. The easy but secure access to either a baitcaster or spinning rod is a plus!
Cool feature of having the ability to switch from spinning to bait in the same assembly. What I dislike is the RAM ball connection. When mounted on port side while trolling, a fish strike causes the ball to loosen and can potentially slide off the yakattack rail. When mounted on the starboard side while trolling, a fish strike causes the ball to slip and the rod holder turns and points towards the stern. The deck mount would be a better option for trolling.
Easy to install and works great
I've got two of these mounted on either side of my yak next to my seat, on four inch tracks . I troll ALOT and due to the infinite adjustability I can move them around to keep out of the way of paddling . On occasion , my lure will get hung up and pull very hard on the setup, it may rotate in the ball a little but rod stays in and nothing has broke . I'm putting these on my other yaks. A must have item for me, and for anyone that needs a rod holder. Functions great and very durable . Have landed lots of fish as a direct result of using these.
