Long Cradle (Dipsy)
Part Number: RHLCR
The long cradle was originally designed for charter boats but has been adopted by many fishermen with a smaller size deck. The unit was engineered to allow the reel to be held further up the cradle keeping more of the rod handle out of the boat. There is a security ring at the end of the cradle which can be quickly engaged/disengaged.
Charter captains use of the long cradle allows for comfort and freedom for their customers to move around the deck.
This product is great for pulling dipsy's and trolling with Muskie lures!
The cradle style rod holders are designed to index 360° with 20 interlocking positions by simply lifting and turning our exclusively engineered spring loaded mechanism. When engaged, it is secured by machined teeth around the entire circumference for virtually no wear on the product ensuring long lasting sustainability.
In addition to the radial movement, the cradle will adjust to any angle from 0-135° by actuating the padded lever. The lever can be rotated in any direction to meet the needs of each user. No tools are required for positioning of the rod holder. All aluminum components are anodized to military specs.
The cradle rod holder is designed to ensure quick removal of the rod from the holder. The handle of the rod can be removed by tilting it up vertically and freeing it from the cradle.
As of 2014 all new cradle orders will be shipped with the second photo as a redesigned cradle! This will accept spinning rods and trolling rods!
