For today’s angler, sonar is the name of the game for finding fish. With sonar technology that scans directly down, to the sides and, more recently, around the perimeter of the boat in real time, crappie, panfish and bass anglers are more informed than ever regarding where fish are and where they are. its underwater environment. habitat.
With the influx of sonar options comes the need to place these displays in strategic locations, both forward and at the console, so they are visible, accessible and out of the way. Mounting sonar displays on the vessel requires strong yet lightweight materials that are built to accommodate the additional weight of large 12- to 15-inch displays, which are often placed side by side on many modern vessels.
One of the companies filling that need is a new entrant in the probe holder market, Rose Metal Products (RMP), makers of Trophy Graph Systems holders. Headquartered in Springfield, MO, Trophy Graph Systems offers a variety of mounting hardware for any size sonar configuration, with versatile options available for single or dual bow and console displays.
Outdoor Specialties Boat Center in Eastland, Texas has a constant stream of customers requesting a variety of sonar mount configurations for their new or used Ranger, Nitro and Tracker boats. Outdoor Specialties also handles all three major electronics brands: Humminbird, Garmin, and Lowrance, so they are well-versed in what constitutes a quality mounting setup and bracket. Your service manager, Hunter Starr, agreed to look at the various mounting offerings in the Trophy Graph Systems line and provide his initial feedback. In a word: “Impressive”.
Hunter states, “The first thing I thought about handling the Trophy Graph Systems mounts was that they are very light, but also very strong. I’m not worried about stability when holding these expensive sonar units in place, even in rough water. They also have a nice powder coat on the metal brackets, so they have a clean look that seems very durable.”
He adds, “The bow mounts are nice because they come in single or stacked configurations above the trolling motor pedal, but the mount has enough offset to avoid interfering with pedal access.”
Additionally, Starr likes the versatility in the multiple configuration options in the RMP lineup, noting, “Our goal is to give our customers what they want with screen placement, so the ability to have options with screens multiple or individual screens in both the bow and the console help us meet the needs of those customers.”
