Thread: Penn Downrigger bases

    Default Penn Downrigger bases

    Hi guys, looking for 2 Penn swiveling downrigger bases. Heard they're not making this stuff anymore. Hard to find them new online and would rather find used ones. Anyone have or know of any?
    Thanks!

    I tried buying one on ebay a while back and the price bid up to $150 per base so I said F-it.

    I've heard of guys taking the Cannon brand swivel bases and mounting the Penn mount on top. Not sure how well that option works though.

    Yep came across that as well, will look into it. Ridiculous to pay that.

    Found a couple locally for 124. Each. The cannons are about a 100 and low profile which may or may not make a difference. Will likely spring for the penn but I'll look into the mods needed for using the cannon

    Cool. Well if you local source has any extras, can you give their contact info?

    Sure, was Ulmers. Took the 2 off the shelf, not sure if they have more in stock but might be worth a call.
    I checked out the cannon base, would require drilling and modifying everything to make it work. Not worth the 50 buck savings to try to Macgyver it.
