We designed and overbuilt our heavy duty fixed rod holders to outlast the competition. When we set out to design and build our rod holders we refused to settle for the ho hum copycat mentality that plagues the sport fishing industry. We challenged ourselves to build the strongest rod holder using the thickest gauge materials within reason and keep the cost in line with our competitors.
We put an emphasis on building a product that will last longer than most people will own their boats and withstand the rigors of commercial fishing while sporting a refined custom look! Thanks to our in house manufacturing capability we offer standard boat name and graphic engraving for a marginal set up fee on all of our rod holders! Check out the specs below to see for yourself why our rod holders are better.
Featuring a hand polished mirror finish ¼” thick 5” x 4” Top Plate with 4 mounting holes to accommodate 5/16 diameter countersunk bolts made from 316L Stainless Steel.
Measure 9" Deep to accommodate trolling with #2 short butts.
A proprietary L.T. Marine (Laurel Tool & Engineering Co., Inc.) feature standard on our holders is the rod tube is recessed up into the top plate to help minimize flexing and weld failure at the point where the rod tube, and top mounting plate meet via a heavy duty weld.
The Rod tube is made from 1/8” thick walled 304L stainless steel. It is designed to accept all 130 size class bent butts and features a closer tolerance fit with a heavy duty liner to minimize 130 class rods from rocking back and forth in rough seas and create a more secure feel while resting in the rod holder. Our rod holder will also accept all #2 and #4 butts, and Winthrop Terminator Butts and still swivel without rubbing the reel handle against the covering boards.
The backing plate comes standard in 1/8” thick stainless steel and features a proprietary L.T. Marine (Laurel Tool & Engineering Co., Inc) designed safety line bracket which can be positioned at any of the 4 mounting thru holes and rotated to fit your clearance needs.
Custom Engraving of your boat name/graphic is available on the top plate! (One time processing / set up fee of $200. Custom engraving has a lead time of 4 weeks)
Available in 0 (90), 15, and 30 degrees.
Features a lifetime warranty against structural/mechanical failure due to normal use.
