Fits into Hobie’s molded-in rod holders and fastens to the boat using two straps and padeyes (included). Release the lever to adjust the angle of the rod holder. Allows you to adjust the angle of the rod so it is best suited for the fishing situation. It is a tube design with a removable gimbal pin and a reel holder that can be rotated to orient baitcasting or spinning rods into the perfect position. The two oversized padeyes can be used for rod leashes. Extremely popular with anglers who like to troll. Hobie recommends using a rod leash to tether your rod to the kayak when fishing for big game.
