Keeping things simple and versatile, the new RAM Ball Wedge Mounts are a great way to provide a mounting point to practically anything. Simply slide the wedge into the round opening of your rod holder base and tighten the screw. The new RAM Ball Wedge Base expands to accommodate holes from 7/8 in.- 1 in. diameter and locks in tight. Once installed, you have the perfect way to mount anything from RAM Rod holders, GPS, Cell Phone, Cup Holder, Fishfinder, or Flash Light which can all be supported and perfectly positioned using this great new product. The RAM Ball Wedge Mount features a 1.0 in. rubber ball.

I use the RAM wedge mount adapter to attach a Garmin fish finder on my Hobie PA 14. It works great putting the fish finder in the center of the boat at the front of the cockpit where it is easy to see while seated and standing up.
Not what I expected. Cannot quickly mount or take off. Need screwdriver. disappointed
Works exceptionally well for mounting my fish finder to an existing Scotty style rod holder mount. It makes installing and removing the fish finder mount very easy. Just remember to keep a screw driver in your box of tools before heading out on the water! The Ram videos on the web site are very helpful too.
I like the idea of installing a Scotty flush base then using these 1" and 1.5" balls to adapt to the ram system when/if desired. This provides the utmost inflexibility without giving up anything. That said, I wish installation (and removal ) didn't require tools as it would add great flexibility on the water. NOW IF WE COULD JUST GET THEM TO MAKE AN REVERSE ADAPTER TO GO FROM THE RAM BALL TO GEARHEAD for those places where the ball is already installed.
