Dovetail Mounting Base

1 review Write a Review


Traxstech Dovetail Mounting Base Features

Traxstech's Dovetail Mounting Base serves multiple purposes for anglers. When used while side trolling divers, fish disks, or flatlining, it maintains the rod handle at waist height, facilitating easier handling. Additionally, when pointing rod tips skyward while utilizing planer boards, these bases effectively position the rod butt closer to the gunwale, keeping it out of the way.

Features of the Dovetail Mounting Base:

  • Oval base offers a 45-degree range of side-to-side rotation, enhancing flexibility in rod placement.
  • Crafted from heavy-duty aluminum, ensuring durability and sturdiness.
  • The block's backside is drilled and tapped to accommodate Scotty® & Folbe® deck-mount type bases for added versatility.

Traxstech provides two variants of the Dovetail Mounting Base:

  • Short Dovetail Mounting Base (Body Only) - Part: #RRH-400, Height: 5"
  • Tall Dovetail Mounting Base (Body Only) - Part: #RRH-400T, Height: 13"

These bases are available separately and are also offered pre-assembled with an S-17 Salty Bolt-On Rod Holder. They are designed to cater to various fishing preferences and situations, providing flexibility and adaptability in rod positioning for anglers.

    13” tall dovetail RRH 400

    I’ve owned the Traxstech system ever since it came out and this is my 2nd boat I’ve installed it on. I went with the 13” because I have a flush deck and wanted the rods higher. The product is very strong and built extremely well. I always recommend these products because I know how well their constructed and how long they last.
