Default SOLD: SOS TACO 15' Telescopic Outrigger Poles & Mounts

They are in complete working order and just have a few light surface scratches but nothing out of ordinary.

The type of bases these were in are sort of unique. They come with plates that go on top of your t-top and the bent arms slide down into the main t-top tube from the top. The end of the bases have notches on them. You pick the pole up, rotate it 90, and then set it back down. I think these can also be used in a gunnel rodholder;?

These were on the boat when I bought them so I dont know how old they are. They are labeled SOS which is what they were before Taco bought them. From what I know, SOS were better made and Taco had some issues that have since been resolved with quality.

The buttons all work and there are no dents. I believe these are 1 1/8". On one of the bases, 1 of the 4 teeth are missing that lock to the gimbles. This doesnt affect operation though and it can be easily fixed.

Here are the pics. You can see sort of how they mounted to the t-top. Its raining so this is an older photo.

Asking $300.

I would consider trades but all I am looking for right now are a bilge pump, pop-up cleats, a crowder trolling rod, yamaha tach, and a yamaha fuel management gauge.

There are no bases. As you can see in the last picture, the poles go into the vertical piping of the T-Top. This is great for smaller boats!

I think the current bent arms can be used in gunnels by inserting them in the rode holder but I havent tried that.

What do you mean holders? This particular setup is designed to be used with the bent arms and the guide plates. The main support is coming from the t-top leggings as shown int he picture.

You said they originally came with plates that the holder slides into. Do you have the plates? Was it basically a 90 degree rod holder mounted inside the t top tubing? You rotate them from the top I assume?

Eddy yes that is correct. The bent arms and the plates that you see in the picture above would be included. This will increase shipping slightly due to the shape of the bent arms as a heads up...

It seems they are basically traditional gunnel mount type outriggers placed on the t top. The thread got a little confusing.

Do all the buttons on the rigger pop out easily?

Sorry for all the confusion. I was originally just selling the poles but I decided I will include the bent arms if the buyer wants them.

I have never used gunnel mount outriggers but im sure these CAN be used as gunnel mount(with the correct rod holder) or, a better option, on the t-top as shown in my picture. You have to drill a hole for a bolt to act as a gimble but Its much better than in a gunnel rod holder IMO

All of the buttons work perfectly. There are just some very light surface sratches from bouncing rigging but nothing I could get to show up on a camera.

The rigging is included as well. If you dont want the arms, the shipping cost would be less.

Thanks for your interest.

Do you have a pic from under the t-top? I want to see how the circular plates are attached to the t-top.
