Recently purchase Scotty rail mounts 245, rod holder 279 and scotty gear head extender. Installed and went fishing on my 2013 Hobie pro angler. Can move rod in all the positions that I need to with this set up. I also installed the slip disc which makes making adjustments on the water a lot easier! Only have to loosen adjustment knob a little to adjust with slip disc. Quality product and makes my fishing kayak more effective.
The only problem I have is that the gear heads do not line up with each other very good. If you have a single rod holder mounted it's no big deal. If you try to use it with a triple rod holder or a bait board, you won't get it level.
This is a durable product that integrates with Scotty accessories perfectly;y. That said, part of the the durability is created by having deep notches used to "lock" the system in place. I'm using my extender for a bait cutting board... allows me to swing it in front of me... or keep it over the water. But the board is always off kilter from where I wan't it. DO NOT GET ME Wrong... this product is durable and integrates solidly with Scotty accessories. But if you need (or want) a flat surface... you may be better off with a Ram Ball (it just won't be as stable).
Does just what it says and works well with the panfish mount. It's good for putting accessories in reach and then out of the way when needed.
