    Hey BOC I have a Tracker Pro Team 190. I want to put some good holders on it. I have searched but found no info of anyone using Scotty's. But I seen and heard of a few that have used Berkly quick set, Cabelas quick draws. I also know that I dont want to drill up my new boat trying to make a homemade setup. Which do you think would be best that could take a beating? So Im not swimming after my rod and reel.

    2. Cabelas Quick draw

    I Use The Cabelas Quick Draw System On My Boat, I Troll With Them Also & With A Flatbottom Boat They Take A Good Beating When The Water Gets Rough. They Have Held Up Very Well.

    I Bought Several More Of The Receptacles In Addition To The "Tri-Mount" And Placed Them All Around The Boat. I Can Then Put The Poles By Themselves Or 3 @ A Time In Any Location, Which Is How I Prefer To Use Them.

    I Feel You'll Be Happy With Them As I'm Pretty "Fussy" About Everything Working Perfectly & I Have No Complaints.:wink:

    I use the scottys, they cost you but might be the best. I have about 30 dollars each in mine and have 6 of them. The extensions are 10 dollars each and even now I want mine up higher. They are great quality

    i have the attwoods. wally world for 12 bucks. basically the same thing as scottys.ive used mine all summer and havnt had any problems with mine.as far has hook set it has a locking collar you just flip it to the side and the rod pulls back and out not forward and out so there is no slack when you set the hook

    Cabelas 360s are what i use on my boat. The quickdraws won't accept bigger rods so the 360s worked best for me. There is a pic of the holders on the back of my boat in the photo gallery.

    I have Scottys on both my boats and they take a beating but I've never broken one yet. They're a little more money then the other ones made like them but they're a lot heavier made. I have the flush mount bases in the gunwales on my Invader boat and the bolt on type mounted on the wooden rail on my Carver cruiser. I really like'em.

    I just got done mounting four Driftmaster rod holders on my boat. Look at my profile picture of my boat and you will see the holders.
