Can't find these rod holders, HELP!

In Alaska we used a rod holder that clamped the rod/reel as you lowered the rod into the holder. It was a clam shell affair. When you got a salmon or halibut hooked all you did was jerk the rod straight up, the clam shell opened and you had the rod in your hands ready to fight.
There was no way possible for the rod/ reel to come out unless you tore the holder off the gunnel or picked up vertical on the rod.
Does any one know where I can get them for my pontoon boat?
I find the ones with a rotating plastic cover thing to hold the rod to be almost useless, the fish will be gone before you can get the clamp undone and fight the fish.
You're looking for a Folbe brand rod holder. Amazon has a bunch of 'em.
They sure look like it but I ordered MONSTER rod holders before I found your link. I think the monster rod holders will be just fine, I hope.
Well I gave up trying to find them and ordered MONSTER rod holders. They did mess up the order a bit but fixed it at no charge. I saw Dieter Melhorn using them on Youtube and they sure are stout and work fine on the pontoon rails.
