    Looking for 4 or maybe more stainless steel clamp on rod holders that can attach to the rails on my 17' BW Montauk.

    Anyone got some laying around they don't need before I buy new?

    I needed 4 more rod holders on my skippy. I was reluctant at first to purchase them on Amazon, but I got "Amarine-made Stainless Tournament Style Clamp on Fishing Rod Holder for Rails 7/8" to 1" Rail Mount Rod Holder" and they're actually really good. it was $40 for a set of 2. They look good and perform just as good as any clamp on rod holder I've used. Keep in mind, these are two bolt rod holders and do not have a set screw to put through your rail in case you have heavy drag the clamp slips. For that reason, I only use these as rod storage on my arch. The clamp on rod holders I got that I would actually put a rod in to fish are "Whitecap Industries S-7004CBLUE Rail Mount Rod Holder with Bracket, 10-Inch" - on Amazon. Those have the set screw, 4 bolts, and I'd trust most of my rods in them, except for my trolling gear. I think they were $75.

    Wouldn't be hard to drill and tap a set screw. If you have tools and know what you're doing...

    The Amarine ones don't have gimble bar on bottom. So nothing to hold reel up or clip a line to like quality holders.

    But if on a budget the Amarines are not bad for the price. Not everyone has the cash to buy the nicest rod holders.

    I've had the Whitecap rod holders on my boat for 3.5 years and my boat's in a slip. Not saying that there isn't better American-made product, but they're holding up well so far

    No gimble bar, but looks like a plastic “bar” (for lack of a better word)

    Still, killer part for $16 bucks. I took it apart to check the attachment to the tube. Nice strong welded and threaded. Much better than the old WM where the tube is just threaded and a single 1/4” long bolt holding things together...

    And .....way, way better than the cast metal, plated ones. These clamps are (suppose to be) solid 316 stainless steel.

    Ones I have are plastic inserts. Nice ones have welded bar you can clip a safety line for your rod.

    Like i said. For the price, it's a product with value. Spend more, get more. But these work just fine.

    I have had the Amarine ones from Amazon for 4 years on my boat. They look as good now as the day I bought them. I have a total of 10 on my boat clamped onto the rail on the bow for drifting a live bait and 8 on the hardtop piping rod storage. I can snap a pic next time I am on the boat if you want to see how they holdup. I moved them around until I finally decided where I liked them the best. They have been in their current configuration for 2+ years.

    Here are the ones I bought for rod storage. They are made for larger pipe.



    I also installed a couple of these and have been very pleased.
