Rod Holder Help

Postby Evan » Sun Jan 17, 2016 8:55 am

I just got a Tanacom 1000 and rod Its got 100# braid on it.
I checked my 2 back rod holders and they have some small fender washers under the
nuts. Do i need to make a backing plate to reinforce them? Or perhaps take some bigger fender washers
and modify them to fit?

Installing additional backing is definitely easier than repairing the gunnel after a failure due to over- torqueing the rod holder.
