So the time has come; I need to buy new out riggers. I currently have BLY riggers- which got bought out by Gemlux a few years ago; so I unfortunately can't buy replacement parts anymore and my Taco bases don't lock in like they are supposed to anymore.

I like the collapsable kind because I do trailer the boat on occasion; whenever a hurricane/storm is coming and I also pull the boat out for the slower months of the winter. Otherwise, the boat is lift kept. I have been having issues with my current riggers collapsing while I am running the boat-If I hit a wave too hard. This means I am climbing all over the t-top in rough seas trying to extend them back out again. (not fun) Keep in mind these riggers ARE carbon fiber. I really don't want to have to deal with this anymore.....Has anyone else had issues with their riggers collapsing while running? Is this a problem with the newer Gemlux, marshy tacky etc?

I like the newer taco riggers and bases...they seem to be the most inexpensive-but I just wanted everyones opinion on how to get the most bang for my buck here. If ya'll don't mind please give me your reasoning as to why are suggesting the brand you are. (ex. Best warranty and customer service, cheapest etc....)

I am hoping to get a lot of life out of whatever I buy next. I do a lot of trolling out at the break and I need a set of riggers that are reliable and dependable. I pull dredges from down riggers so I don't really care if the riggers can handle a triple stacked dredge or not...

Also may need some help installing new bases-who should I call for that?

Thanks in advance for your input and time!

Matthew

Try these people http://tcmetals.com/ I use the E-Tec Sailfish poles and mounts on my Albemarle. They were original equipment. I have rebuilt them no problem in getting parts. The poles are collapsible and have wipers to keep the joints from binding up.

I agree with Dave. My previous Southport had Lee bases with collapsible Carbon Fiber poles. Great support. Had everything I needed in Wilmington to rebuild the bases and parts for the poles if needed. Brother are great to work with.

I'm pretty sure they make 18' and 22' carbon collapsible poles. I have the 18's and love them. Super light and they dont flex like my old tacos.
