Poleducer Basic Short Ram Mount Arm
The Poleducer Basic Short arm will have the short length arm/stem D size Ram Mount, standard 2x3 rectangle base, and the one peice sleeve clamp.
Short Arm Dimensions:
- Overall Length: 7.875" when assembled with the sleeve clamp and 2x3 rectangle base.
We developed the 60" shaft out of fiberglass utilizing a marine-grade resin for strength and longevity. Lifetime warranty on the shaft. The inside diameter allows for the transducer cable to be run inside the shaft eliminating the need to have the transducer cable "zipped tied" outside the shaft. This was part of the simple, clean appearance we were looking for. The fiberglass shaft along with the D-Size 2.25" RamMount allow for the "break-away" ability thus not causing damage to the shaft or transducer if striking an underwater object. The PoleDucer allows the angler total control of the transducer to be pointed at the intended target and not have their images skewed by the trolling motor turning left/right etc...when operating in anchor "spot lock". That being said the PoleDucer system is also a great option for any transducer and can be rotated in a 360-degree fashion to see all around your boat.
For those that have an electric-steer trolling motor like the xi3, xi5, Ulterra, Terrova or PowerDrive V2 the PoleDucer is simply another option to mount the transducer to instead of purchasing the cable guard system required from other companies to mount a transducer to those type trolling motors.
Mounting: The PoleDucer can be mounted to the Fortrex or Ultrex trolling motor side plate or to the gunnel of your boat.
The RamMount is 3.25 lb. (which is dead weight when attached to the boat) and the PoleDucer is 5.25 lb.
The Pole Ducer allows for the end-user to keep in touch with there target 100%
* Marine Grade Fiberglass shaft (no bending of the shaft if you bump a tree)* Ram Mount Break-A-Way ability (keeps from breaking your transducer)
* All Transducer Cables slide up the center of the shaft (no need to manage the transducer cable with zip ties or tape)
(transducer/s not included)
The the difference between the PoleDucer Basic and PoleDucer Deluxe will be the handles. The PoleDucer Basic will have the 12" all thread on a shaft collar with a knob handle and the Deluxe will have the HelmsMate Tiller handle with u-Joint.
UPDATE...since the videos "below" were produced we have made improvement to the Poleducer. We went with a one peice ram ball sleeve clamp over the two ubolts and have gone with the 2x3 rectangle base mount over the round 3.68" base mount. We also offer a Short Ram stem and a Mid Ram stem.
