I am thinking of getting a set of rod riggers , has anyone got some ? If so how do you like them. I think that they would be good to get the inside rods out of the wash. I havent got any outriggers yet and am thinking that these would be a cheaper place to start.
Hopefully next year I can invest in outriggers . I will see the brickman.

I have a set of rod riggers and use them at 90degrees from my rocket launcher as DIY outriggers with a couple of old rods (around 7 foot, but would like a couple of 10 foot beach rods to give me a little extra spread). Works really well. A couple of release clips at the end of the rods. On a 6.25m boat.
Also use them when at anchor bottom bashing with a lucanis jig or livey hanging off them. Gets them out of the way and can fish ot the back with no worries.
Cost $80 instead of $BIG. As a compromise, they are great, esp for a trailerboat.
Attached photo shows them held on with occy straps for the first test run, which has since been upgraded to a couple of stainless pins which is much neater.

a full set of outriggers with bases from Gary (Brickman) will cost your $400
i would be getting the outriggers ova rod riggers any day
you want your lures in the clean water and as magoo said the rodriggers wont do this
give Gary a call the seafarer deserves the outriggers
