I just took delivery of a new rod pod cover for my trident 13.

I’ve never been happy with the flimsy effort that came with the trident – coupled with the fact that I couldn’t find a suitable place to mount a forward rod holder when I saw this was available I decided to get one. It’s a nice sturdy piece of kit with plenty of scope for attaching rod holders and other accessories. it even comes with handy rulers to measure your fish.

Its very rigid and the seal looks excellent so as well as having useful features, I will feel more at ease that it wont let in too much water in the event of a capsize.

All new tridents now come with this as standard but it will fit all of the older trident models.

here’s a picture of the top, showing the rod holder mounts (apparently both scotty and RAM holders fit these), attachment points (use self tappers to attcach accessories) , plug store areas and rulers (cm’s on one side, inches on the other)

and here’s the underside, showing the sealed areas where your self tapers would go into , meaning no leaks
