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 like this so much I got a second one. If you have problems when the fish strike, you should set the drag low on the reel when trolling and turn on the clicker.
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.
I use both bait caster and Spinning reel. This yakAttack Zooka Tube works great for both. I've got 2 of them. I really like them
Great product, very helpful and solid quality.
