About the Leashes – The YakGear Platinum Series Offshore Rod Leash is a lightweight rod/paddle utility leash styled off of the New Zealand paddle/fishing rod leash. As avid offshore kayak anglers, the Kiwis need a leash that is lightweight and features a quick connect system of leash management. Through a quick connect carabiner around a lightweight wrap and closure, the leash allows any kayak angler to stow or release the rod. The leash system is built off a series of extension loops that can stay permanently mounted to your rod while the leash is not in use.
About the Fish Grip – The Fish Grip is the perfect fish landing tool for fishermen of all kinds. The unique jaw design holds the lip of the fish without harming the fish and the wrist lanyard always keeps it close at hand. Another great feature of the Fish Grip is that it floats when dropped into the water! Color – Orange.
About the Base – Many kayaks come equipped with the preexisting external mount bases and rod holders from Scotty, RAM, Cannon, Fish-On, and many other variations of rectangular, four-point installation bases. We get it! This makes it really difficult to add RAILBLAZA bases and accessories to your kayak because the preexisting bases and accessories that you got stuck with are already installed to your kayak! Not anymore! With the invention of the RAILBLAZA StarPort HD – a rectangular, four-point installation base similar in size to that of Scotty, RAM, Cannon, Fish-On, and many others – you can easily remove and replace your old bases with a RAILBLAZA StarPort HD! Not only does this transition to RAILBLAZA base give you the comfort of the RAILBLAZA ‘slide locking mechanism’ fit to all of the bases and the versatility to effortlessly retask accessories from one base to another, but the transition also opens up your accessibility to RAILBLAZA’s large selection of accessories and limitless rigging possibilities! Even with the new improvements to the StarPort HD, the base stays true to the RAILBLAZA core features: stylish, low profile, based on StarPort design featuring ‘slide locking mechanism’ and compatible with ALL RAILBLAZA accessories.
About the Rod Holder – Stop compromising rod holder standards by forcing a decision between holding a bait caster, spinning reel, offshore reel, or fly reel. The Rod Holder II will hold any type of rod and reel, with quick adjustments. The rotating collar helps reduce ‘strike-theft’ and the rear gimble lock reduces rod rotation for compatible rods. This rod holder is fully adjustable 360 degrees around and over 90 degrees vertically. Like all RAILBLAZA accessories, this the Rod Holder II fits all RAILBLAZA bases.
