00:33
[Music]
00:40
hey everybody kevin with how many cats
00:42
monster rod holders
00:43
are they worth it let’s talk about it
00:46
the model i’ve chosen to purchase is the
00:48
33
00:48
45 i have seven across the front
00:53
and in the back of the boat i have my
00:56
silver and black ones that i
00:58
started off with in the back i got four
01:01
on the back
01:03
and i have a couple more silver ones
01:05
that i’m gonna mount on the side
01:07
for different scenarios uh where i want
01:10
to fish off the side of the boat
01:12
two main positions a 33 degree angle and
01:15
a 45 degree angle
01:17
the 45 degree angle is the first slot in
01:20
there
01:21
this position is great for anchoring
01:23
because it keeps the pole
01:24
high up in the air when the fish hits it
01:28
it’ll pull down and the takedowns are
01:29
better
01:30
more pronounced the second position is
01:33
the 33 degree position
01:37
i used this one for dragging baits it’s
01:40
a little lower to the water
01:43
i’m not worried at all that a fish will
01:46
drag
01:47
these poles out of the water mainly
01:50
because of
01:51
the rubber coating this rubber coating
01:53
really grabs your rods
01:55
i have a clip of my rod getting snagged
01:59
in my
02:00
the action on my rod being all the way
02:02
down and the pole’s not going anywhere
02:04
it’s holding it tight
02:05
you can suspend with these rods you
02:08
can’t make a zero
02:09
degree position
02:13
the only thing about this one is as you
02:15
can see there’s no point of contact
02:17
right here with this particular rod
02:19
now maybe yours is different but uh i
02:22
still use it just like this
02:24
it keeps your rod in the zero degree
02:26
position
02:27
uh for suspending baits
02:31
so you get that good pronounced take
02:33
down and your
02:34
rod is level unless it’s a really rough
02:37
day i’ll even travel from spot to spot
02:40
with my poles in these rod holders all i
02:42
do
02:44
is i just take it and put the reel down
02:47
lower
02:48
so that i’m not worried about you know
02:51
if it pops up straight
02:52
it’s it’s not going anywhere even if it
02:54
goes to the side
02:56
it’s just not going to go anywhere
03:00
and it holds the casting reels just the
03:02
same
03:04
holds it right in there that’s the 33
03:06
degree
03:09
there’s the 45 degree and then when i’m
03:12
riding
03:13
[Music]
03:15
i slide it down and i don’t worry about
03:17
it
03:18
if you’re strapped for cash you can only
03:19
afford one
03:21
one will hold two rods just gotta get
03:24
creative with it mr makes these great
03:26
square mount bases for your pontoon
03:28
rails
03:29
as you can see there’s just a bolt right
03:32
through that connects the two
03:35
pieces of uh i guess that’s aluminum
03:38
and on the bottom there’s a screw
03:41
so all you do is get you a screwdriver
03:44
and a
03:45
socket wrench and you can install these
03:48
quickly i love it i can take them off i
03:50
can move them
03:51
so if i want to move these anywhere on
03:53
the rail i can
03:54
i just have to unscrew it and move it
03:57
down
03:57
now on the right side of the boat this
04:00
is where
04:01
i wish they had a left-handed green one
04:04
at the time
04:06
because if a fish hits this really hard
04:08
it’ll unscrew it and
04:10
the rod holder will turn to the left if
04:12
you have this situation
04:14
and have it available in the color you
04:16
want make sure that you get the left
04:17
hand threaded rod holder
04:19
and you also have to get the left hand
04:21
threaded base
04:22
as you can see i’ve also replaced the
04:27
nut that comes with the rod holder with
04:29
a stainless steel wing nut
04:31
and this just helps you tighten it down
04:33
and loosen it on the fly
04:34
you don’t have to do this but make sure
04:37
that you get the stainless steel wing
04:39
nut
04:39
and not a zinc wing nut or it will rust
04:42
i bought these rod holders for several
04:44
different reasons one
04:46
being the reputation that they have i’ve
04:49
never heard of anybody
04:51
complaining about their monster rod
04:52
holders two
04:54
the base is very attractive i can take
04:57
it off
04:58
when i store the boat when i put the
05:00
cover on
05:01
and the bases allow me to move
05:05
the rod holders wherever i want number
05:07
three
05:08
the half inch design makes them really
05:11
sturdy
05:11
i’m not worrying about them breaking in
05:13
half i’m not worried about them wearing
05:15
down
05:16
and that coating on the top is gonna
05:18
keep rust
05:19
from ruining my rod holders and then
05:21
lastly they just look great
05:23
don’t they combat the cats is not
05:25
sponsored by monster rod holders at all
05:28
i paid good money for all of my raw
05:30
holders
05:31
and i’ve bought way too many of them to
05:33
be honest with you so this is an honest
05:35
opinion
05:36
unbiased opinion it’s just what i like
05:38
you can get monster rod holders from the
05:40
monster rod holder website
05:42
you can get them on various different
05:44
tackle shop websites
05:45

05:52
twenty two dollars
05:53
up to about twenty six dollars if you go
05:56
on monster rod holders website that’s
05:58
where you can get the different kinds of
05:59

06:00

06:03
square bases i purchased for my boat

06:07

06:09

06:10

06:24
no matter what brand you pick everyone
06:26

06:27
that a good rod holder it’s worth its
