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.
When the best place to install a mount is in a location that is not as easily accessible as you would like, the extender is the perfect solution to position whatever you are mounting exactly where you want it.
I have a Ocean Kayak Trident 11. I wanted to employ the mod-pod as best as possible so I minimize drilling holes the kayak. For bottom fishing on the ocean, i wanted the rods in front of me, but I also wanted a bait board with cup holder and camera mount. The solution was the Scotty Triple Rod Holder Mount with an Extended Gear Head Mount in the center and the Scotty Bait Board/Accessory Tray attached to that. I am very pleased.
