In part 1 of this series on Rod Holders, we covered Scotty Rod Holders.  In part two of this series, I want to share with you Ram Mounts.  Ram Mounts use a ball and clamp style mechanism to hold the rod holder in place, which can come in handy if you simply want to lay the rod holders flat while paddling.  

As I mentioned above Ram Mounts use a ball and clamp to hold the rod holders in place.  One benefit to this over the push in and lock system by Scotty is that you have a much wide range of motion to position your Rod Holders.  

2x2.5_dia_baseRam Mount Standard Base:
Ram offers two base plate models, one being a 2.5” diameter circle base and the other being a 2 x 2.5” rectangle base (the rectangle base offers an additional backing plate for reinforcement).  Both of these base plates come in either a 1” or 1.5” ball.  Most of the Rod Holders accept the 1.5” ball, the 1” ball is usually used for other Ram Mount accessories, so pay attention if you’re ordering these components separately.

Ram Mount Rod Holders:

Revolution_Rod_HolderRevolution Series:  
Integrating two sought after features into a single system makes this new Rod Holder versatile to the extreme. Offering not only the patented RAM Rubber Ball and Socket Feature, but a ratcheting feature as Revolution_Tubewell, there is literally no limit to where this holder can be put or how it can be fished.


The RAM-119 tube holder is designed to hold the handle end of you fishing rod. It is an aluminum tube with a 1.5 inch socket at the end, connected to a 2.5 inch round base with a 1.5 inch ball.
