Default Troll master mounting??

I have a digital trollmaster and was wonder if you guys have seen any type of RAM style or similar mount that the troll master will fit into? I am looking for something similar to the cell phone mounts that RAM has that fit on the RAM arms.

Any info or better yet pictures of your installed/mounted troll masters would be appreciated.

I just installed one today with this

http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-pla...ng-cradle.html

It fits great, but I have no on-the-water time with it to tell you if it slips at all. It doesn't look like it will though, the fingers grip well.

Perfect! Does this come with the arm and mounting ball? It looks that it doesnt so I guess how do I know what one to order with the finger gripper?

I use those heavy duty Velcro patch you get from Home Depot, clean the area with rubbing alcohol and they stick real good.

Thats what I used in the past but the new rig doesnt have a spot to velcro to that is easily visible for operation.

I like that Ram Cradle, great idea. I have been just putting mine on the gunwale while fishing and as you can imagine it slides all over the place.

Looks like exactly what I was going for. Thanks! I assume you need to order the arm separate?

Yeah, but I just put it together from spare parts laying around. I tend to accumulate Ram parts.
