All I'm going to say that in my opinion CISCO is the only way to go for the many reasons mentioned above so you made the right decision. Since you have a Lund did you think about or order the Sport Trac mount for your rod holders? I used it in my last two Lunds and it gave me a lot of versatility.

Never have I tried the cradles with dipsies or other presentations. Been tempted to but I don't want the handle of the rods sticking in to the boat. With my current boat they would get in the way. I have not lost a rod yet while placing the tube at a 90 degree/horizontal angle and I also carry short bungy cords that I can use from the reel to the tube if needed.

Yes - I ordered two with the Lund Sport Trak mount, and one for the rail. The sport trak mount is a very useful and versatile feature, and easy to use.

A bit of an old thread but some good info here. I have a 216 Fishunter on order and I will have the flush mounted rod holders across the transom, but I am looking for some rail mounted holders for the back as well as the front.

I mostly troll live bait, swim baits and wake baits, and rarely ever use planet boards, at least currently (that could change). I love the look of the tube holders and like how they are not intrusive and can be used while running to keep the rods out of the boat, but are they really predominately for use with planer boards?

Mine are used mainly for boards, but I'll straight line one out each side occasionally with live bait (harnesses). Obviously, you would need some risers and differing rod lengths to straight line more than one line per side.

Thatís what I was concerned about. So different size risers and different tube angles would not be enough when straight lining more than one rod per side? You would need different rod lengths?

I'm sure you'd be fine long lining a couple rods per side....one pointed straight out the back, the other perpendicular to boat. To go 3/side I'd get a couple stubby rods.
