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 re-task 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. WARNING

    This rod holder securely holds your rods/reels in place with all of the working components of the reel (bait caster/spinning) able to work freely. Great Product, and definitely recommended for any angler’s situation.

    I was searching for tough, durable rod holders that could handle strong take downs from the big catfish that I chase from my kayak. I chose these because of the much lower profile that they have compared to some of their competition. My only concern was their strength. Upon receiving them I was very impressed with their appearance and decided to give them a shot. The first fish caught using them was the biggest fish I’ve ever caught and boy did he give this rod holder a test! The Railblaza II handled the trophy fish flawlessly and removed any doubt I had in it’s toughness. All my fears have been relieved and I would recommend these to any one in the market.

    Sleek yet robust piece of equipment. Perfect for securing expensive rod/reel combos even during large fish encounters.

    Strong, tough and durable. Railblaza products are well worth the cost.

    I am pleased with this rod holder. It is very secure, and allows adjustment to angle or direction without undue fuss. I like that it is easy to remove from the base when transporting or storing the boat.

    Perfect rod holder for my fly rod!

  7. 5 out of 5

    Exactly what I was looking for, the product description was accurate, and helpful. Installation was a breeze. I used to carry my rod in my lap, very cumbersome when paddling, now I have it behind me out of the way when traversing to the right spot, and then easily reach for it. Another huge plus is that all I need are additional bases and I can now carry my rods on all my water craft! What a GREAT product!

    Nice rod holder, I also purchased the Railblaza StarPort HD Mount Track Kit and swivel base, works great on all my rods except a fat gripped muskie stik. Would buy again

    Best rod holder and base I have ever used, they fit very snug and secure and are easily removable to be stored out of the way. Fit and finish is of great quality and install was simple as could be. I will be ordering more!
