Description

The foundation of Traxstech's Ultimate Fishing System is its anodized aluminum mounting tracks with grooved interior design. Once installed, our mounting track system for boats allows rod holders, downriggers, and other marine electronics to be easily slid into the track. Once in place, the star-shaped thumb screws just need to be tightened to secure any accessories in place. When you are not fishing, just slide your fishing equipment out of the mounting track and replace it with our starboard sheet track insert (sold separately - Part #RPIB).

Mounting Track Width: 3 1/2"

Mounting Track Lengths:

6 inch, 12 inch, 18 inch, 24 inch, 36 inch, 48 inch, 60 inch, and 72 inch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What length/size of the mounting track should I mount on my boat?

A. The track is the least expensive item and it is easier to mount one longer track, rather than adding it in smaller sections down the road. IE: If you want to add another rod holder, net holder or adjustable cleat, with the longer track you are already set up for it. Just slide it in and go.

Q. What is the minimum length of the track I can use to install my vertical trees to my boat?

A. We recommend using our MT-24 or larger tracks. The longer the track the more stability and strength you will have. Using a smaller length may cause your equipment to fail and the possibility of losing your valuable equipment to the bottom of a lake increases.

Q. What is the minimum length of the track I can use to install downriggers to my boat?

A. We recommend using our MT-24 or larger tracks. The longer the track the more stability and strength you will have. We recommend downriggers have a track that is installed directly to the gunnel. Using a smaller length may cause your equipment to fail and the possibility of losing your valuable equipment to the bottom of a lake increases.

Q. How many backer plates do I need for my Traxstech mounting track?

A. If you are installing a 6", 12", 18", 24" or 36" track you need to order just one backing plate in the corresponding size. If you are installing anything over 36" and wish to use a backing plate as well you must order the 3" backing plate - (part # 3-BP). The other size backing plates will not line up properly with the mounting holes on your tracks.

  • MT-6 uses one 6-BP
  • MT-12 uses one 12-BP
  • MT-18 uses one 18-BP
  • MT-24 uses one 24-BP
  • MT-36 uses one 36-BP or Five of our 3-BP (recommended)
  • MT-48 uses five 3-BP
  • MT-60 uses seven 3-BP
  • MT-72 uses eight 3-BP

    Your track has gone on several boats. Never an issue.

    Have used your products on several boats over the years. Whether it’s stopping by the shop, seeing someone at one of the shows over the years or a simple call or email. It’s all good.

    The mounting track is a great product.

    Makes for a quick and easy set up when going out on the lake. Options are unlimited for rod position for changing conditions.
