Solid gimbal mount for downrigger

I use these to mount my downriggers off the stern gunwale rodholders. They're very strong and mount the downrigger bases fine. The only flaw is that they are a bit tight fitting onto the pin at the bottom of the rodholders. Otherwise fine.

Universal Gimbal

I purchased two of the Cabela's Universal Gimbals.... both broke within one year of use. In both situations the teeth broke at the base causing the downrigger to become loose. I almost lost a downrigger! It appears that the aluminum is not strong enough for this application - buy one that is made Stainless Steel!!

Gimbal Mount for Fishing Pole Holder

Looks good so far--just hope the weld holds up under the strain of the downrigger and weight. Fits well and all the holes line up perfectly. Expensive for two pieces of metal welded together and a few bolt holes tapped into it. Bought it because my pole holder had a 25 degree angle to it and couldn't find any others to fit that angle. Would give it five stars if it were half the price. Would recommend to a friend to get a pole holder with a 30 degree mount so that they had cheaper options for a gimbal mount.
