Default Rod holders for track systems

just got my new boat home last week, yay me!, I been leaning towards Berts ratcheting tubes, my only concern is has anyone had one slip out when you run them below parallel to the boat?? Or even on a strike when turning?? Any other suggestions are appreciated

I run the Scotty tubes and rod holders, maybe not as pretty (ok they aren't as pretty) but they are reasonably priced and work well

I have Berts , the only time I'd run them like that is if I'm running dipsys and the force of the dipsys keeps them pinned in the tube. I will add i generally keep them parallel when running dipsys as I just don't like the look of them below parallel though. Very good rod holders,tape your caps on with black electrical tape.

Welder I think it would help if you posted more info. What are you using these rod holders for. Dipsy divers, planer boards or fishing rod by itself. I would not run tube type rod holders below parallel. I have a few of the Folbe rod holders. I will run those in the back corner of the boat. Those you can tip down. Run the tip of the rod right next to the water.

Default Berts

Bert's work great. I never run below horizontal. Only downside of Bert's in my opinion only is that they do not ratchet back to point inside the boat; they only go vertical. for that reason, I have to slide them off to put on my snug fitting boat cover. Maybe I'll get a different cover eventually I guess.

For running boards i recommend rod trees- they save space and cut down tangles in the turns and also a good net holder. I also keep my Berts horizontal for dipsys .

I used to use Burts. I actually like traxtech ratcheting rod holders better now. I agree with above poster. The best is a combo. Use three rod holder vertical trees for boards. And ratcheting rod holders for dipsys. Even if you are not going to use all three rod holders on the trees. You want the taller three rod holder posts.

When trolling boards I am also concerned a bit with my Bert's rod holder below horizontal but I have never had a rod shift outward while trolling in this position.

I will second the securing of the black caps. I have lost 2 and replaced 2 on my buddies boat..........
