    Cisco Rod Holders

    Just wanted an honest opinion from those who have and use Cisco rod holders. They look bullet proof but,need some input from experience to see if they stand up to a Dipsey/Wire combo and the punishment our Great Lakes Salmon would hand them.
    Thanks, Frank

    They are as good as a traxs tech little more money scratch up a little easier
    Their adjustability is is their big selling point . They certainly are not a compromise in quality construction .
    We stock and install traxs tech and cisco have then both on display rite next to each other in the store most of it in stock
    Including the cisco riggers
    Stop by and have a look
    Seems to me the traxs tech stuff is popular with lake Michigan guys and the cisco stuff is popular with lake Erie guys only because cisco is originally from Ohio and traxs tech from Michigan

    I've ran them for the past 3 seasons. I absolutely love them! Two sets of triples along with their rocket launcher...

    RE: Cisco Rod Holders

    Absolutely BULLET PROOF! Their adjustability is the BEST thing about them. I waited and used A LOT of rod holders before I bought them. I have been more than pleased with these holders. Here is a picture of mine in use along with my set-up.

    RE: Cisco Rod Holders

    FYI....the low diver (second rod from the right) runs on a .5 with a Magnum ring most of the time when I am running a double wire set. That set-up isn't a lightweight puller. I am very happy with these and mind you I have no affiliations with them.

    RE: Cisco Rod Holders

    I run Cisco's as well they are rock solid rod holders. I run triple tubes as well as the cradles, the way my boat is set up I prefer to run my divers in my cradles do to the fact I have storage bins in my Ranger that would require me to lean over the side. I also use the cradles for pulling bouncers walleye fishing. You'll love the quality build and adjustability of them.
