After watching your video I went ahead and ordered a Castmate system for my SFC. Like you pointed out, the versatility of the system outweighs the increase in cost. Thanks.

Thanks for the comment! I'm sure you'll find it a great rod holder.

Since you have had it a while do you have a preference over the low or high rod holders or any draw backs with either? My plan if for one up front and three out the back, four rods total.

I use them both, but the longer ones give me more flexibility.

Got my Super Fat Cat out Wednesday for the maiden voyage on lower Otay. Really liked the Castmate system. Caught a couple nice ones and a few dinks.

Here’s my DIY. Love it. It is very versatile. Similar to Castmate. Made it for a lot cheaper [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
