I wanted to know for drift fishing if anyone has had problems with the driftmasters loosing if the tension pulls at the rod the direction of the threads? On the web site they say for trolling you should have left thread on the left of the boat and right on the right. I'm NOT going to be trolling Also I've heard that the bases are all aluminum and the only problem with them is occationaly one will have the threads stripped - I'm guessing part of that maybe someone not knowing they are reverse threads! My kids and their friends will be fishing on the pontoon with these rod holders and I'm wondering if the two diffrent thread styles aren't just asking for troubles. Does anyone have input on if the 2 thread types are really necessary for what my fishing style is. Also it's not like I'm gonna drift real fast even in a steady breeze with a 24 ft pontoon. Thanks for any help!!
