Keep your fishing rod secure and protected along the side of your kayak with the Hobie Horizontal Rod Holder Kit. Insert the rod tip into the tip protector and lock the rod handle into the clasp. Easy to install using the provided hardware. Choose either through-bolts or sheet metal screws. Fits any kayak.
Great for surf launches. You should try to install them with the paddle stored.
I got this to use for my other rod when fishing for snook near docks. They pull the kayak under some times and saves me moving the rod. The rubber part only lasted 2-3 trips before it snap, so I can only give it 2 stars at most
Great idea, great setup, but the rubber strap is cheap and breaks easy. Mine broke on the second day of use. It wasn't over stretched, as i mounted the hanger bolt so close that there was barely any tension after reading similar reviews.
Good design but just like evryone else reports, the rubber band is completely worthless and breaks after a couple of uses.
