This rod holder is a great addition for any kayak. Whether your kayak doesnt have built in rod holders or has 16 rod holders, these are a handy accessory. I use one on my river kayak as it allows me to angle my rod back and keep it out of the trees. I also use it on my lake kayak that has a ton of rod holders. It allows me to stage rods after a catch and keep the rod out of the way for taking pictures of my fish for tournaments. You can detach them with the quick detach mount and it makes it a breeze to attach other accessories like camera mount and many other things. Great accessory!
