CE Smith Fishing Rod Holders - Rod Holders - CE53682CA Review

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we take a look at this heavy duty stainless steel 30-degree flush-mount fishing rod holder with the large bottom drain. Now this is a heavy duty 30-degree flush-mounted rod holder. This will hold up to one 130-pound class fishing pole. And this will let you fish hands-free and have multiple lines in the water. The very bottom, you can see it as a grounded cast bottom, and that'll provide added safety when mounted in open gunwales 'cause there's no sharp edges to scrape your shins or damage your gear.

Now the holder we mentioned does mount into your boat's gunwale. It will require a two-and-a-quarter inch diameter hole to be cut into the gunwale and it does attach into place. You can see up on the mounting flange here. It has the three holes and it's recommended to use three-quarter inch bolts or screws to install this. Now the hardware to install it is not included.

You would have to supply that. We mentioned this does have a 30-degree angle when it's installed. This will help create a nice wide trolling spread and it is the most common angle for fishing rod holders. The very bottom right down here has a 30-degree or a three-quarter inch threaded drain hole. And this will let you attach a hose to route the water into the bilge.

And they do that because this can be used for mounting the holder over dry storage areas. And what you can do is put a threaded hose barb in there, connect the hose to it, and then route the water away from the dry area. Now the hose barb and the hose to install that is not included. We do sell that separately. This is a heavy duty 316L stainless steel construction.

It is rust-proof and corrosion-resistant. Does have a nice polished mirror finish on the mounting flange, so that when this is installed, it gives a nice good look onto your boat. It is a wide low-profile flange, and that flange is welded to the tube for durability. A few dimensions on the mounting flange, the length on it is gonna be right at five-and-one-eighth inches long. The width on it is gonna be right at four-and-a-quarter inches wide. Now at the very bottom of this, you might be able to see if I turn this, there is a bar that goes across, you can see there. And that's on the inside. That's a tall built-in gimbal bar in the bottom. And that'll help keep your rod from spinning in the holder. And it also uses a vinyl liner on the inside to protect your rod from any scratches or scuffs. A few specs on this, if we measure the length or height of it. On the short side is about nine-and-a-quarter inches. And on the higher, taller side is about 11-and-three-quarter inches. The tube inside diameter. It's coming right at one-and-seven-eighth inches. And we mentioned the two outer diameter is two-and-a-quarter inches. But that should do it for the review on this heavy duty, stainless steel, 30-degree flush-mounting fishing rod holder with the large bottom drain..
