Rocket launchers? They're all the rage over here.

have a word with INCENTIVE on here. 5.5m ocean pro fitted out for fishing and with rod holders but not on A frame.
Seems to work well (too well-catches far too many fish )

I went for the cheaper option. Speak to a plumber for some off cuts of pipe and a few pipe brackets and screwed into back of seat. Not too stylish but very cheap.

290mm x 600mm could attach it to stainless steel bar and tack weld it to the a-frame. Do you think this would work? 19.99 on e-bay item no 390232962198

I added an Outhill 2inch stainless Aframe to my rib this summer and really struggled to find a rod holder that would do the job and look smart. Eventually i find a company that manufactures stainlees rod holders that clamp to the a frame and hold the rods vertically but with the twist of an allen key they rotate through 360 degrees. so once i have rigged up i twist through about 60 degrees and i can put the rods in them and use them for trolling. if iam on my own and haul a fish in i put the rod in the holder in a horizontal position which makes it easy for bringing fish in and baiting up or changing rigs and for bottom fishing i can put the rod in the holder till i get a bite.

Go to the wakeboard towersuk website then got to " tower accessories" then "racks" then bottom right handside "fishmaster swivel mount"

I have mounted mine at the point where the Aframe goes up after it wraps round the tubes.

Hope this helps

For an even cheaper alternative if 'MOD rocket launchers' aren't your cup of tea, then Penn velcro rod holders are worth a look. Can fit on the top of the A-frame or stainless-steel hand rail. The base of the rods would need to be secured when underway though. Details here: http://www.tacklebargains.co.uk/acat...il-Holder.html
