It's a good platform, but it could be slightly improved in my opinion.
Pros - The Triple Rod Holder is a solid built item that I know will last
a very long time due to its ruggedness and solid construction.
There is nothing flimsily about it at all. Cons - As a result of the
solid construction, it is a heavy item. So with three rod holders
attached and with rods, it becomes an even heavier item. This is
okay if you plan on mounting it directly to a Scotty Side and Deck
Mounting Bracket. Now if you need to raise it up higher, this is
where the problem occurs. I used the 4.5" Scotty Mini Rod Holder
Extender and the Triple Rod Holder now becomes somewhat
unsteady with all that weight causing it to now wobble side to side.
My advice would be to build a dual mount Triple Rod Holder so with
two bases, this would probably eliminate the wobble from side to
side with three rod holders, three rods and extenders added. One
more thing, if you plan to use it for kayaking and want to mount it
somewhere in front of you, make sure exactly where you are going
to place it. If it's somewhere between your legs, before you start
drilling, make sure it doesn't interfere with your legs or feet. Thus it
may have to be far enough away to do this. Just a few things to
think about. 4 stars because of the wobble if you attempt to raise
it, otherwise a solid item.
Great item. Many different uses
the Scotty tripe rod holder is a wonderful solution to mounting more
than one Scotty rod holder in front of you . . . extremely well made and
easy to put together and then just plug in your already installed Scotty
single rod holder mount. again . . . ACK service is the best on earth
Great product. Mounts on the existing mount in my ocean kayak,
allowing my to mount two rods and my sounder.
Sits a little too close to the sides of the kayak, so I will need to add
10mm or so cutting board as a spacer, either beneath the mount, or
between the two parts of the triple mount bar.
I have 3 kayaks two Ocean Torques and 1 Hobbie Pro Angler 14.
The Ocean Torques I bought are classic models that did not
come with rod holders. The other torque models rod holders are
behind the seat making getting your rod a bit more difficult
(IMO). I installed the Scotty Triple Rod Holder on both torque
kayaks in front of battery box and behind the front hatch. I went
to the dollar store and bought a cutting board and used that for
backing underneath the mount inside kayak for added support.
The mount is rock solid and out of the way of your feet and in
front of you but still within arms length to grab rods. I feel it is
just the right width and height for my use without using any
extensions (although that is an option). Great product and an
awesome upgrade to the torque kayaks.
Works great. I have it mounted
on a Hobie PA 14. I use it
primarily for trolling. I mount a
Scotty Lake Troller and Scotty
rod holders on it, this allows
me to stack lines while trolling
from one central location on
the kayak. I have 4 Scotty
bases mounted to the PA,
making this triple rod holder a
very versitile piece of
Built pretty heavy duty and would
take lots of abuse. I wouldn't
have a problem putting three rods
in it to troll.
I bought this for my ocean
kayak trident 11 to mount on
the mod pod and free up some
room. The rod holder seems
to be quality built, but I had
some application issues. When
I mounted it to the mod pod
the holder is too wide and hits
my feet. I added the Scotty
extension to raise the holder
up so I would have room for
my feet but I lost some
stability with two rod holders
and fish finder mounted. It's a
quality product so I gave it 5
stars, but if you are going to
mount it to your mod pod take
into consideration its 16 1/4"
Works great mounted to a kayak.

Excellent deal and best price
by far. Slipped right
into my existing Scotty center
mount. Now I can have
my Scotty camera mount and rod
mount in front of me
with a spare for ??? and hang
the lures and tools
Love it, awesome rod holder. Scotty makes great products for kayak fishing!!!!
it is great
