This unique concept did a whole lot more than just support a fishing rod. Allowing a quicker response to strikes and elevating the rod to a comfortable height spelled success for Fisherman everywhere. Keeping with that tried and true design, RAM now offers the RAM-ROD 2007 series. Ideally suited for vessels as small as kayaks, to larger Tournament or Charter boats, this new line of products is guaranteed to please. Incorporating a one of a kind and patented ball and socket feature, perfect adjustment is a breeze and setting the hook could not be faster. When it comes to price, form, function, and don't forget fun.
works well with a few different rod types. the ball is a 1 1/2" will not interchange with fishinder ball but will with other rod holder ball. the holes are the perfect size to tap a 1/4-20 thread. I used large headed ss screws from the inside and it works great. solid mount and the ball will not slip when tightened!
The rod holder functions as advertised. The ram ball holds the holder firmly in place. It works PERFECTLY on my baitcaster. I'm afraid it doesn't work quite as well with my spinning reels. I can set the rod in the holder, but the reel prevents me from positioning it far enough back for a secure hold. You can turn the reel sideways and slide it further back, but in that position you have no functionality in the reel and because the rod holder is mounted on my console, the reel is then in the way of my foot-controlled steering. You may want to consider a different holder if you use baitcast reels.
Bought this to use with the screwball and I have to say this works great. Easy to get rod in and out.
This item when used with the floats can be utilized to make kayak stabilizers. Mount them in front of the mirage drive as they do not interfer with fishing.
