Cannon Ratcheting Rod Holders

Recommended Posts

Just bought one of these and was under the impression the holder would freely stand up from the "dipsy position" without having to pull the trigger. Doesn't seem to be the case.

 

Did I get a lemon or what?

It will "ratchet" up and hold position. When you get bit, just grab the rod, lift up and pull out. They seem real tough when you test them by hand, but trust me when you get a king on they come up smooth as butter.

Don't get me wrong, I like the cannon holders! Possibly the best I've tried. But it seems a couple small changes could have made the product better. Like a below-vertical setting.

the only ones I know of that has a below vertical setting is the traxstech ratcheting holder. it has 17 positions up and down. I have the cannon on my boat and love the one hand operation. I just bought one of the traxstech holders. going to see which ones I like beat.

I'll just throw this out there - let me know which you think is best and what features you think are missing from each. I'm actually working on designing my own now, you sir could influence the development early on.

Thanks all!

 

Is it just me, or should the rod holder ideally just fold up without any force required? Seems to me this would be superior.

 

other than just grabbing and standing them up what force do you have to do to get them there?

Pardon?

 

sorry, i am confused as to the problem you are having. are you saying you have to do something extra to stand yours up? if so, there is a problem with yours.

If the four boats I fish in most we all have different rodholders, I have cannons, my buddy big Jon’s, his Bil has traxtech and my other buddy has berts. I like the cannons the best with berts a close 2nd don’t care for the traxtech but would use them if that’s all there was and would have many complaints I absolutely hate the big jons.

If cannons had one more click down past 90 they would be perfect.

I have both Berts and Cannons on mine....the Berts come easier by hand, but loaded (fish on) I rarely notice the difference. I do like the easier adjustability of the cannon dual axis over having to loosen thumb screws to adjust the Berts.

I wont be using the traxstech until next yr. but from observations of them I like that they adjust below vertical and has 17 adjustments so they can be as little or as much as you want to keep your diver rods apart.

 

the cannon is one hand operation. just grad the holder and squeeze the release to put them down. then just grab the rod and lift to ratchet them up. I have both the single and double axis and like the single axis the best. the double axis has a square base and adjusts from pin hole to the next pin hole. the single axis has an oval base and can be adjusted as little as 1/16 or up to 70 degrees left and right.

 

just off hand I think the traxstech will serve my purpose better if I can get use to using both hands to put the holder down. the ideal holder would be one hand to set the holder with the 17 adjustments of the traxstech. and I would want the oval base that traxstech and cannon single axis has. im probably going to use 2 traxstech holders to start with. then if I can get use to using both hands to lower it i'll replace my cannon with the traxstech.

cisco. can set them any angle and go below 90 down does take 2 hands 1 to loosen thumb lever other lifts the rod simple and extremely well made

i've decided to stick with the cannon as it takes one hand to lower the holder. the 17 adjustments on the traxstech is better than the cannon. but with the rod in one hand its nice to be able to lower the holder just by squeezing the holder and adjusting it. the traxstech takes both hands.

quick question, i was just ready to order a couple of these from fishusa,

 

at the bottom in the question section, it says these won't fit a traxtec trac or cisco trac

 

can anyone confirm this, or are they wrong will they fit

From what I understand, they should fit. Maybe someone can confirm.

I have a total of 8 cannon dual axis. 6 are mounted inside Traxstech tracks and the other 2 are mounted into a Berts track. As stated above all interchangeable

    • Rod Holder question

      I am fishing with a dipsy now.  The rod holder I use you have to pull it out of the holder and it a bit of a time waster and a pain.  I think they make a rod holder for trolling that you just lift up and it releases the rod.  Am I making sense.  Well anyway, what is the brand name for those rod holders as i would like to buy one
