These racks use a custom "blind fasten" pad that not only allows for a clean look, but keeps you with only one mounting hole.

Not only do you get the custom mounting pads, you also receive the custom inserts that are specifically made for these racks. These "hard plastic" inserts not only repels mildew but also protects the rim of the rod holder with an overlap lip. These inserts are custom made in Good ole Tennessee

Hey Trooper. I like that mount. Alot. Fewer holes = fewer places to leak!

I assume you can still do that one with alternating straight to angled tulips and accomodate more rods, like the 11 rod unit we discussed last week. Correct?

Looks good man. Be ordering soon.

Oh yeah! We can do the same with 11 alternating. Many more than that and it starts to become to tight and looks really cluttered.

Hey Stamas, I have a full time career and do this as a hobby. I do everything by myself and truly enjoy seeing things come together. With that, I'm able to offer products just a little over cost. This hobby allows me to keep my boats operational on a Troopers salary!

I love to see someone take a Idea, apply some creativity and talent and put together something that looks this good with a great function at a very fair price.

Tig welders, Argon, materials, electricity and powdercoating are not cheap.

A small fabrication business, making money. .

Good luck to you.

Whats the next product?

What size are the pads you use on the mounts? I have a 6 rod holder and the pads have 4 bolt holes. Curious if your pads will cover the 4 holes I have in toolbox for each pad if I buy 11 rod unit.

They are 4 inches. The washer on the back comes in 2 or 3 inches. I can get the pads upward of 5 inches though

Jagsare1: The customer didn't have any large tackle to put in the rod rack so I stood on it to show its strength and durability. I'm 270lbs and balanced on it for a few minutes with out a hitch

Trooper: I love the 11-rod holder. I already have a rack for the truck, but I need to replace the factory rocket launcher on my Parker 2520.

If I unbolted it and shipped it to you, do you think it would be possible for you to make an 11-rod launcher with the same anchor points as my factory launcher?

360-400.00 depending on how difficult the mounts turn out to be. That would be for 11 rod holders
