This product would probably work well for
holding a gps, fishfinder or a rod that you
just want to keep off the deck of your
kayak. It is not suitable for trolling and
that was how I had intended to use it.
Even after tightening the screw down
very hard, it is still posible to rotate the
ball by hand. With the additional torque
provided by a 7' rod, a very weak pull on
the line will cause the adapter to rotate in
the base. I tried this with both a scotty
gear head and also a scotty flush mount.
Do not buy this product if you want to use
it in a trolling set up with Scotty mounts.
ACK refunded my money with no hassle,
however I did have to pay return
shipping costs. I hope somebody reading
this review will be able to avoid that
expense in the future.
I purchased this to mount a
Ram rod holder to my existing
Scotty mount. Torque the
screw down and it's lock in
tight. I could pick up my Pro
Angler by this if I wanted!
