Lee's Swivel Base Rod Holders
Primarily designed to be used with bent butt tackle, the rod holders unique swivel base allows the rod butt to rotate in the rod holder when side pressure is applied to the tip of the rod. This is an indispensable tool, especially important in Giant Blue Fin Tuna fishing, where reel drags in the neighborhood of 60 pounds are frequently used and can result in tremendous forces being applied to the rod holder pin. Not only does this make sheared rod holder pins a thing of the past but, more importantly, it allows the tip of the rod to follow the fish. Size is 10 1/2" x 2 1/4" OD. RH577XL long tube version is 14 1/2"L x 2 1/4" OD. Backing plates RH5930 recommended for installation.
