  • CE Smith
  • Stainless Steel

12" Long, swivel-bottom rod holder lets you use up to a 130-lb class fishing rod. Single-piece swivel gimbal cup ensures your rod turns to follow the catch. Features smooth-release clutch with adjustable resistance. Rustproof stainless steel.


Features:

  • Swivel-bottom, flush-mounted rod holder holds 1 fishing pole (up to 130-lb class)
    • Ideal for high-speed trolling
  • Single-piece, precision-machined swivel gimbal cup allows your rod to turn in the holder to help reduce line breakage
    • 360-Degree rotation in either direction
    • Gimbal bar helps keep your rod from spinning independently of the swivel cup
  • Adjustable-resistance clutch lets you control the amount of pressure needed to turn the swivel gimbal cup
    • Smooth releasing so it won't jerk your rod
  • 15-Degree angle helps you narrow your trolling spread
    • Requires less space under the gunwale
  • Heavy-duty 316L stainless steel construction is rustproof and corrosion resistant
    • Polished mirror finish looks good on your boat
  • Wide, low-profile flange is welded to tube for durability
  • Drain hole in the bottom keeps water from pooling
  • Vinyl liner protects your rod from scratches and scuffs
  • Holder mounts in your boat's gunwale
    • Requires that a 2-1/4" diameter hole be cut into gunwale
    • Attaches with (3) 1/4" bolts or screws (not included)


Specs:

  • Length: 12"
  • Tube inner diameter: 1-7/8"
  • Tube outer diameter: 2-1/4"
  • Tube wall thickness: 1.2 mm
  • Mounting flange dimensions: 5-1/8" long x 4-1/4" wide
  • Gimbal bar dimensions: 1/4" wide x 5/8" tall


This heavy-duty, swivel-bottom rod holder lets your rod turn to the left or right to follow a fish that's taken the bait. Its 12" length, strong stainless steel construction, and extra-large mounting flange can endure the strain of a hefty tuna or a speedy wahoo. Because the mounting flange is angled 15-degrees, the holder takes up less room under the gunwale than a rod holder with a 20- or 30-degree angle.


Swivel Gimbal Cup

This swivel gimbal cup is built into the CE Smith swivel bottom rod holder.

This rod holder has a precision-machined, cast swivel gimbal cup in the bottom that rotates a full 360 degrees in either direction, allowing your rod to turn in the direction that the line is pulled when you get a big bite. This reduces the risk of your line breaking and the fish getting away. It is also ideal for high-speed trolling when using a rod with a bent butt. And, thanks to this swivel holder's sturdy 1/4" wide x 5/8" tall gimbal bar, your rod won't spin independently of the swivel cup.


The swivel gimbal cup remains stationary until it is triggered by the adjustable, smooth-release clutch. The clutch will activate when a certain amount of pressure is placed on your fishing rod to turn. This occurs when a fish pulls your line with enough intensity to pull your rod in a different direction. The clutch releases smoothly so the swivel cup, and your rod, turn to follow the line without jerking. You can adjust the amount of pressure it takes to activate the clutch by tightening or loosening the threaded nut on the bottom of the rod holder.


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 5-1/8" long x 4-1/4" 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 (CE53683A - sold separately) with this rod holder to reinforce the mounting area.


Drain Hole and Protective Vinyl Liner

CE Smith swivel bottom rod holder has a drain hole to keep water from pooling.

A small hole in the bottom of the holder lets water drain out instead of pooling inside. A protective, UV-resistant vinyl liner sits inside the holder to help keep your rod free of scratches and scuffs.


Installation requires that a 2-1/4" 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).
