Primarily designed to be used with bent butt tackle, the rod holders unique swivel base allows the rod butt to rotate in the rod holder when side pressure is applied to the tip of the rod. The rod is more easily removed from the holder since it is not locked on a rigid pin. The swivel base holder functions as a standard rod holder when used with straight butt rods. Straight butt rods can be manually rotated so that the line remains on the tip’s roller. The amount of torque required to rotate the swivel is set by adjusting the pressure on two Delrin® drag washers with a ½ inch stainless steel lock nut at the bottom of the rod holder. White vinyl liner protects rods and is keyed with the gimbal bar to eliminate liner twist.
