In the past I have used the Wise Rod Holders and they held up well for a value priced item. It seems the quality isn't what it used to be. I left my old Wise rod Holders on my Loon 138 kayak when I sold it and bought a new set for for my new Loon 126. The new ones haven't lasted one season. The problem is the small white plastic piece used to keep the rod retaining ring on falls off. It was held on by a rivet. When this happens the white ring that holds the rod down can pop off.
The old axiom "You get what you pay for" has proven true again
