Rod holders for an X2

8 posts in this topic

Has anybody found rod holders that work well in an X2, or made their own?

I'm looking for some good ideas, other than making a couple holes in the sled (I used to have a Frabill that had pre-drilled holes in the front of the bench for putting rods in).

I am going through this dilema as well. I just bought a couple of those cheap red ground ones and was going to try and rig something up, i will let you know if it works.

I have a couple of catch cover rod holders that mount to the poles. They aren't big enough to mount to the bigger poles, but I mount them to the support poles in the front of the house. You can also put them on the internal poles on the side of your X2. They work great as the rod just rests in the cradle and is very secure yet easy to take out. Most places have them for around $20 each but I found them at Reeds for $14.99.

I use two kinds of rod holders. I use the nature vision multiflex rod holders on the outside poles on each side of the trap.

And I use the Outdoor Creations hot-rod holders (the wall mount ones) that I stick into holes drilled in the tub lip and center console.

Im thinking the Otter Rod holders would be able to be mounted in one. I run them and they are very nice and adjustable.

I agree Steve. There has to be a way to attach the Otter rod holders. One might need to drill a hole or two.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
