  1. Go smokeless! you will never regret it. here is a great option to get into smokeless without breaking the bank. Chromeslayer has proved what you can do with a higher end build like he has and from his post you can see nothing he can't do with his that most can't even do with a rifle!
  2. I puchased 0ne for my 10 meter Trojan a few years ago after talking w Rick from Yankee troller. I called ordered over the phone with the amount of rod holders I wanted and where, they had all the measurements from other boats and was no need for me to do so. they keep all info for every arch they build so if they have ever build 1 for a boat like you have they will build it and it will be perfect! they are build to outlast your boat and the craftmanship is over the top. installation is not hard but you willl need 2-3 people to do it....mine was 12 feet wide with 14 rod holders. on mine I had to cut the "legs" on it as they make them long depending on how high you want it. it can be unbolted with 4 bolts and removed in about 30 min if you ever desire to do so. to say they are overbuilt is a understatement. If you can take time to drive down to pick it up you will save $$ as shipping is kinds pricey. good luck
  3. Set my boat up with all Cisco rod holders last year. very well built product. I have 12 tube rod holders and 2 of the short cradle holders for dypsies. everything is on cisco tracks as well. I run my dypsies behind the rigger at the very back of the boat so the rod handle does not stick into the boat but, along the stern and is not it the way. They work great and it is very easy to get out when a fish is on. The ONLY problem i have with them is I run roller rods and the reel would sometimes rotate in the holder so the wire would be not be running true on all rollers...if you run twilly tips or a roller rod with a swivel tip this would not be a issue. It only happened a cpl times when I was running Tekota 600s but when switched to 700s it happens all day because of the heavier reel. When running two on each side my others are the tube style which you can leave unlocked and pull up very easy just like ratcheting holder. IMO the cradles are a little easier with a big king pounding on it but both work fine. good luck.
  4. when I had my 24ft Penn yan hardtop. I just purchased tite-lock rod holders and screwed them to the top across the back. spaced about 8" apart. they were adjustable to what ever angle you want to have them at. they could be folded down flat to the roof when not in use which is what I needed to do to store the boat in the garage.
  5. nice work BadFish...see you Thursday. keep at them
  6. FYI...friend of mine just ran into same trouble. cannon uses the same rigger body for the digitroll's so under the "sticker" on the top where the buttons for digitroll would be there is a hole where they run the wires thru. if any of that sticker starts to peel up as his did just a little in one corner...your rigger will fill with H20 and fry you switch and board! his had 2" of H20 in it when took side cover off to change board! I placed small bead of silicon around mine after seeing that!
  7. check out the cisco cradle rod holders for dypsies. i always had berts rachets till i used these. no more struggles to get out when big king hits...can do it with one hand.
  8. If you are from Ohio..check out CISCO rod holders they are made in Ohio and are all machined aluminum...awesome. http://www.ciscofishingsystemsltd.com/
  9. Just got The New to me 10 meter Trojan to Wilson last week. got it on lake Simcoe in Canada. 1984 never been fished. PO had just replaced the Top and complete interior inside and out and installed the Plasti-teak floor. in last cpl week I have installed a complete Trax system and Rod holders from Cisco. The cannon riggers, Furuno fishfinder and Fishhawk X4D. already had a 9' Raymarine GPS/ fishfinder. Installed a 14 rod custom fishing arch from Atlantic Towers. should be ready to fish by next weekend! keeping it in Wilson for few more weeks then off to Oswego. http://imgur.com/hl0OZuQ http://imgur.com/0rQQjLb http://imgur.com/hwUuqAL
  10. I just mounted 2 4 ft traxs, 1 3 ft trax and 2 2 ft traxs with 8 rod holders and 4 cradle dypsy holders on my Trojan all from Cisco..could not be more happy the product!! great company to deal with as well. i had berts on my last boat and had very good luck with those as well but, these are VERY well crafted and rugged. http://imgur.com/0rQQjLb
