I have Roberts holders on my river rig.I haven't lost a pole yet,but yet is the key word.The plastic is too flexible and well I just don't trust them.On my other boat I had Cabelas quick set type rod holders(made by Scotty)I like these,they are tough and built well and allow you to set the hook when your rod is still in the holder.I bought two more for my new boat.

The best rod holders I've owned or used are Setzer. They were a small Chicago area company that catered almost entirely to Lake Michigan trollers -- Setzer was bought by Du Bro and are available under that name. They cost more than most, but they are super.

Ram Rod. Best set I've ever owned. Might be a bit more than the others, but well worth the price.

Another vote for Ram Rod. Great flush mount install, tough, easy in and out, recommended to me for walleyes and muskies by several folks at Reeds. I used them all last fall with no problems.

I have to give it up to the Scottys. The Rams are better, but for the price I can't argue withg the quality that comes with the Scottys. I've used them for everything from walleyes to muskies without a problem.

I'm assuming that you're trolling for walleyes and not great lakes trout and salmon. I used Scotty's all last year and am getting two more, they're about $20.00 ea. and represent good quality at a fair price. I never had a problem with the Scottys and they are adjustable for the "pitch and roll" that you want the rod to be at. But it's possible to pinch you're finger when locking the rod into the holder if you're not used to them. In the high end of rod holders are Ram's. They have a great ball bracket and a nice shape, but cost substantially more than the Scotty's.

I bought 2 Scotty fish holders last year and my only complaint is that one will pinch your fingers on them when turning the lock shocked.gif ...otherwise the quality is good and priced right! Plus it easy to get the rod out if you have a strike!!!

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?

    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
