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 30-degree angle helps you create a wide trolling spread by positioning your rod tip further from the boat. 30-Degree rod holders are more commonly used than 15- or 20-degree holders or straight holders.


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 CE Smith Boat Accessories - Fishing Rod Holder - CE53672A Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the 70 series fishing rod holder from CE Smith. This is a flush-mounted rod holder that's going to hold one fishing pole, up to 80-pound class. It's going to let you fish hands-free and have multiple lines in the water. It does feature a 30-degree angle. That's going to help create a wide trolling spread which is going to be the most common angle for fishing rod holders. The unit is made from 316L stainless steel construction. It's going to be highly resistant towards rust and corrosion and it's going to have a nice polished mirror finish which is going to look great on your boat.

We're looking at a wide, low-profile flange that's going to be welded to the tube for durability. It's also going to feature the open bottom. That's going to let water drain out of the holder and it's got the built-in gimbal bar. That's going to help keep your rod from spinning and it's going to hold it in place. The gimbal bar dimensions, that's going to measure a quarter of an inch wide by a half inch tall. It's also going to feature a vinyl liner.

That's going to protect the rod from scratches and scuffs. The holder is going to mount in your boat's gunwale. It does require a two-inch diameter hole to be cut in the gunwale to get this to mount and then it's going to attach with three quarter-inch bolts or screws. Your hardware is not included, so that will need to be provided separately. The length that we have. I'm taking a measurement from the bottom of the tube to the base of the weld.

That's going to give us a measurement of about nine inches long. Inner tube diameter measuring from inside edge to inside edge of that vinyl liner, that's going to measure about one and five-eighths of an inch. Outer tube diameter is going to measure around two inches. Then when it comes to the mounting flange, that's going to give us a width of three and five-eighths with a length of about four and a half inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the CE Smith 70 series fishing rod holder.
