Unlike the standard Out Rod holder which is fixed in a horizontal position, the E-Z Out-Rodder is hinged so that it can be easily lifted upright into a vertical position. You don’t have to struggle anymore when removing your rod from the E-Z Out-Rodder, as you would with a standard rod holder. When a fish is hooked, simply pull out the safety pin and bring the rod holder to an uprigt position. Lift the rod out of the holder and reel in the fish.
How to use the E-Z Out-Rodder
Place the E-Z Outrodder in the gunwhale mount rodholder.
Place fishing rod in the E-Z Outrodder and lock in gimble. (You should always use a safety line at least 6 feet in length from your reel to your cleat.)
When a fish is hooked, grab your rod and pull gently toward you and release the pin.
Lift the rod and E-Z Outrodder to a vertical position.
Lift the rod out of the E-Z Outrodder with a slight pull towards you and reel in the fish.
