Kayak fishing is all about adaptability. RAM Mount offers the widest selection of kayak fishing accessories to adapt to a wide range of fishing scenarios. RAM now offers a deployable transducer arm for kayaks. This solution enables the quick and effective deployment and retrieval of your transducer, while protecting your transducer from damage. Perfect for kayak applications, the transducer arm can quickly be retrieved if you enter shallow water or when beaching your kayak. With little effort, the arm can quickly be moved to a different kayak and attached to a 1” RAM ball. The unique design provides a universal solution for virtually any kayak as well as any transducer. - See more at: http://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-316-18-TRA1-NB#sthash.4QQrxuk7.dpuf

Easy solution to transducer mounting

There's several solutions to transducer mounting but none are as easy & portable as using a Ram transducer arm. Using the Ram arm allows you to easily transfer our fish finder from yak to yak. While it does what it's advertised to do I'm giving it only 4 stars for several reasons. (1) price, $45 seems a little steep. I only spent $65 on the fish finder. I have nearly that into the mounting accessories. (2) Drag. Yup, any Ram arm off the side is going to give you some drag. When I want to make time I pull the arm up when paddling (which could be seen as a plus, I guess). (3) The impression I got before purchasing it was it was articulating. Well, not really. It's a bendable aluminum rod with a plastic sheath over it. The kind of deal where you bend it once and leave it. It is what it is and works well. Just don't have the impression you can easily change the articulation each time you use it.

Overall a 'must have' accessory for me.
