Question Traxstech Ratcheting Rod Holders?

Anyone out there with personal experience with Traxstech rod holders? I'm thinking of picking up a few of the GT-100 model. (See attached pic) I'm curious as to how the rod holder is attached to the base plate. If you have these, may I impose on you to post a close up of the base and a picture looking up at the bottom surface of the base plate?

buddy has them on his boat for running dipsys on Lake MI. I like them, only ratchet up and quickly. Feels like a quality product.

I think they are for a track system. you buy the tracks in the length you want then just slide the holders in to where you want them and tighten them down.

I have cannon single axis ratcheting rod holders and have 2 24" tracks on each side of my boat. I can place the rod holders wherever I want.

if I was buying new holders now I'd buy traxstech ratcheting rod holders.

Thanks for the replies...

I understand these are for a track system. But I'm not sure I like the base plates on the rod holders and would like to see if they can be easily removed and replaced with custom plates I'd fabricate.

Lifetime warranty, so not sure why you would mess with it, doubt very much you are breaking them, and if you do they have great CS.

Agreed... But for my application, the use of the track type base plate quite possibly won't work. It all depends on how that plate is attached and the actual size of the plate.

I could probably get the info needed this coming weekend at the Marine General booth at the SportShow. BUT... No joy there as I'm unable to attend. Thus this post...

you can get tracks from traxstech.com from 6" to 48" and 3 1/2" wide. I have my tracks mounted on my glass boat with stainless screws. I was a little anxious about just using screws. but after I got them mounted I tilted a couple of holders down and lifted my 220 lb weight on the holders and nothing came loose. I use them on erie with 3 dipsy type divers on each side. I've been using them now for 4 or 5 yrs and never had a problem with them.
