I have a few ideas on the design of the holder, but I'm not sure how to secure it to the tube.
I know some of you guys have built your own holders. Can some of you guys share so pics your custom holders, to give me some ideas?

I'll search for the photo of the frame version 2 with wheels and fish finder attachments. If not, I'll clean the garage tomorrow, and take a picture of the updated frame for you. Wife's corner of the garage is not something to laugh about.
Can't seem to upload the file to this forum, so, forgive me, but here's the link to Photobucket:

I can give you a visual on how to customize the rod holder with proper balance, based on what you're hauling as a complete fishing outfit. Kelster, one of the Fish Cat 4 owner, has a very unique design for both 3 rods holder, balanced with 2 tilted rods holders on one side, while 3 rods carrier on the other side. Mine is a 45° 3 rod mount system for one side, 2 rod holders on the back, balanced with a Humminbird 728 fish finder on the other side, with a 8 AmpHr battery. May have to decrease it to a 3AmpHr. It's pretty heavy. I also retrofit the Caddis tube with a small 4 wheel cart system frame (PVC) underneath to haul my tube on the ground, rather lugging that thing and break my back. The frame and wheels create a positive buoyancy system just in case the tube takes a dive.
