I have been using Ram rod holders for many years. I have not used extensions but would wonder how much flex you would get under load. No worries on up to 5lb Walleyes but 10 or 12 might do a bunch of twisting. Curios, why the extension? Bob

I use them and troll for muskies with them no problems. I don't use that long extension but the small 6" or so extensions that come on them do twist quite a bit. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I've been using Rams for about ten years without issue. Last year I tried a couple of the 9" ( I think ) extensions all went well until my fishing partner caught his coat sleeve on one of the rod holders and broke the extension. These are not made of the same plastic that the rod holders are definitely not the same quality. OK not Great.

Thanks for all the info. Ive narrowed it down to the scottys or the rams. I was trying to figure out if the scotty and ram bases were interchangeable.

They are not interchaneble but ther may be a Cabelas that will work with scotty. I have scotty and Ram so I know they are not. Bob
