Thinking of upgrading my rod holders from "fish-on" to the track type thats made by both Bert's and Pursuit. Tired of the rod butts sticking in the boat. Prices seem about the same at Cabela's website. Anyone have a preference for one or the other? How about good pricing? What about tite-lok? do they make a similar system?

Personally, if I were to buy new ones, it would be Berts. I like the new locking adjuster. Seems easier to use and more heavy duty than the Pursuit. I have the Pursuit brocure, it say the swivel mechanisim is lexan. I just like the Berts better.

Mike I got the Burts holders across the back on two tracks. Also put a small track and a straight up holder on the motor cover to hold the dip net. For a net I have a Beckman "Walleye Pro" and keep it fully extended (10 feet) so the holder really takes a beating. All are holding up well so I feel comfortable reccomending them.

After much research I went with tite-lok holders with tracks. I fish Erie trolling dipsies and in line boards. I have used them for 2 years now and am very happy with them. The only thing I don't like about them is they are a little cumbersome to adjust, but for the price they are great. I guess if money is no object I'd go with the Berts, but the tite loks are a good bang for your buck.

They aren't trac holders but vector makes real nice rod holders. A bit expensive. check them out on vectorsport.com
Mine work great.

I looked at these earlier this winter. On my boat, the length of the
track was just a hair longer than the spot I had to mount it....so
I talked to Mike at Fishlander, and ended up getting a good deal on
a new set of duals from him. Small deck plate, 360 up/down; front/back. Came in a little less than the pursuits would have cost.

I've hear that Bert's uses some plastic/lexan parts in their systems now. Is that a problem , durability wise?
