This hefty stainless steel holder will keep your rod steady whether you're doing some serious trolling or enjoying a recreational day on the water. Part of CE Smith's 70 Series line of 9" long rod holders, this model features an open bottom that lets water drain and a tough, extra-tall gimbal bar that keeps your rod from spinning. The straight angle of the holder ensures that it will take up less room under the gunwale than a rod holder that has a 15-, 20-, or 30-degree angle. When mounted in a flat gunwale, the straight holder will hold your fishing rod in a vertical position.


Strong Gimbal Bar and Protective Vinyl Liner

Strong gimbal bar inside the CE Smith 70 Series open bottom fishing rod holder.

The 1/4" wide x 1/2" tall gimbal bar can withstand the harsh conditions that heavy tackle or downrigger mounts can unleash - unlike standard gimbal pins that can get bent or knocked out of place. It's built into the holder and reinforced with welds, making it a virtually indestructible anchor that keeps your rod from spinning inside the holder. This tough gimbal bar also helps boost the overall strength and rigidity of the rod holder. And, the holder's open bottom lets water drain.


A protective, UV-resistant vinyl liner keeps your rod free of scratches and scuffs. The liner is notched to fit around the gimbal bar so that it stays in place and won't twist or spin.


Sturdy, Rustproof Stainless Steel Construction

This heavy-duty, 1.2-mm-thick rod holder is made with 316L stainless steel, which is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, even when exposed to saltwater. The exterior is polished to create a mirror-like shine that makes an attractive addition to any boat.

The 4-1/2" long x 3-5/8" wide flange is welded to the tube to create a strong connection, and it has a sleek, low-profile design that allows it to sit flush against the gunwale so it won't snag your line. For added strength, use a backing plate (CE53673A - sold separately) with this rod holder to reinforce the mounting area.


Installation requires that a 2" diameter hole be cut into your boat's gunwale to fit the holder. The holder will drop into this hole and then secure flush to your boat with (3) 1/4" bolts or screws (not included).

Video Transcript for Review of CE Smith Fishing Rod Holders - Rod Holders - CE53670A

Hello everybody, this is Jeff with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this heavy-duty, stainless steel flush mount fishing rod holder with the open bottom. Now this is a heavy-duty, flush-mounted rod holder. It'll hold up to 180-pound class fishing pole and it'll let you fish hands-free and have multiple lines in the water. The holder is designed to mount in your boat's gunwale and it does require a two-inch diameter hole to be put or to be cut into the gunwale to allow this to be inserted into there. And it does attach with three, you can see up in the top here, 3/4-inch bolts or screws you need to use to attach this.

Now the hardware installed is not included. You would have to supply that. You can see when it's installed, it is at a straight angle. It's great for gunwales with limited clearance 'cause it requires less space under the gunwale. It is a heavy-duty 316L stainless steel construction which is rustproof, corrosion-resistant.

And you can see the flange at the top, the mounting flange, has a nice polished mirror finish to this so it looks good when it's installed on your boat. It is a wide low-profile flange and that flange is welded to the tube for durability. Few dimensions on that flange, you're looking at widthwise, right about 3 5/8 inches, and in lengthwise is right about 4 1/2 inches. Now this one is an open bottom design. This'll let water drain out of the holder.

It does have this tall built-in gimbal bar right down here which will keep your rod from spinning in it. And it does have a vinyl liner on the inside which will protect your rod from these scratches and scuffs. Few specs on this, the total length on this, if we go from the bottom to the very top is right at nine inches. The inner tube diameter, 1 5/8 inches. And we had mentioned the outer tube diameter of two inches.

But that should do it for the review on this heavy-duty, stainless steel flush mount fishing rod holder with the open bottom..

I bought 4 (and the backing plates) to go in my skiff. They look good so far and I'm sure they will handle the Ono Mahi Aku and Ahi that I target here in Kona.

Bought 2 of the 15 deg rod holders, haven’t installed yet but the quality seems to be very high. Will probably buy a couple the 30 deg as well. Also would like to say this is my first purchase from trailer, they came up in a google search, and wow they were the lowest price for these particular rod holders, also shipping was fast and free.
Thanks etrailer!!!!

I ordered 9 CE Smith rod holders from etrailer. 5 15 degree units for the transom wall, 2 0 degree units and 2 30 degree units for the side gunwale walls. If you are a saltwater fisherman, you know that the CE Smith rod holders are "the good stuff". But most places wanted $80 per rod holder! Keep in mind that a reasonable quality rod holder like amarine-made and other similar Chinese no name brands can be bought from other online retailers for $17 per unit. etrailer had the CE Smith version on sale at around fifth dollars per unit with no tax and free shipping. This is far from cheap but by going with etrailer I saved $180 and that was enough to push me toward the higher quality gear. After all, the rod holder bling is one of the first things that someone will see when they board a sportfishing yacht.

etrailer handled my order with good communication and follow up not only by email but by phone call as well. Pretty impressive in this day and age where you usually can't speak to a person about your order even if you call.



by:

Outstanding service from E trailer, superior product from CE Smith. Highly recommended.



by:

As advertised. Solid.
Would benefit
from a gasket rather just relying on caulk for deck sealing.



by:

Great customer service , second time ordering from E-Trailer



by:

Great product
