Keep your fishing rods secure and reels higher out of the water with the Hobie Rod Holder Extender. These fit right into the molded-in rod holders and offer a larger diameter sleeve that is deeper than the sleeve molded into the kayak. Leash the holder extension to the boat and the rod to the holder using the molded eyelets on each side.
Raises the rods up so they are easier to reach back over my shoulder to grab. Wish the slots were just a bit deeper for more stability of the rods. Also wish I could lock them in somehow - not much good hooking a rod leash to a rod holder that's not locked to the boat, should the rod holder come out.
Good quality item. Only gave it 3 stars due to shallow hole for the rod to go in and width of tube(too wide for most rods) I filled in the inner portion with foam to help keep rod from bouncing around.
