Unhappy Lund sport trac

Looking for trolling rod holders. Should I use Lund track mounts or are there better options? I purchased 3 scotty holders but not sure about them! Boat dealer suggest Ram mounts, with 45 degree Lund trac mounts. Have 6 trolling rods 8'.6" with Diawa Sealine 27 reels. All help would be appreciated. Thanks WC

I have an 1875 ProV/200Vrod. I use the Lund Track mounts with the Scotty/Cabelas rod holders (6 mounts). I have the extensions. System works great for trolling with boards on Superior. Mounts can be moved around on the Track system. I considered the Folbe holders, but balked at the price they wanted for them - on local lakes I usually rig or jig and use the rod holder that God gave me.

I use the scotty with extensions and they work very well. The LUND sport track mounts do have some flex in them, i bought some off amazon and they are not lund and are a bit stiffer which i like better. Ive seen some aluminium ones which would be the best i think.

The Impact has the same 45 degree track as the Tyee, what length rod extensions did you use? 6 inch or 12 inch? also who has the best price for rod holders?

Maybe this will help. I also have the 45 degree angle on the sport track. This is what I use for my net and paddle.

I use Ram rod holders mounted on my Sport Trak brackets and have done so since Lund first came out with them.
I use the Ram side mounts bases with the Sport Trak bracket in vertical mode...inside the boat, not over the top of the gunnel.
This way they do not mess with the travel cover when I tow. Also- mounted this way, I have never had an issue, nor did any of my customers. The torque is handled excellently.

Thumbs up

Thanks T MAC: Ram rod holders looks like the way to go, and seems to come with longer rod extensions than the scottys!

I use both the scotty's mounted like T-MAC has and also the Cisco Aluminum sport track mounts. More expensive, but way more durable and stable than any plastic mount. I use them for my dipseys and for trolling boards and deeper bigger baits. I've had magnum dipsys pull a rod holder out of a scotty mount when a big King hits it.

Fort lighter stuff the scottys work just fine..

If you're going to be running dipsey's - looking at other options is understandable. For anything else in freshwater fishing - the lund sport track brackets work fine. Brand of rod holder - is up to you. I run the Tempress and have no issues with them.

On my Pro V - I did mount a few flush mount holders in the gunnel that are in positions that are solid, useful locations. The sport track brackets offer flexibility as they can be moved around - although I rarely move them.

For dipseys, and downrigging, I have tube style Canon rod holders mounted right to the Downrigger brackets. When the DR comes off, the holders go with them.
