Other than making a pole ducer from clumsy pvc , who or whom makes parts and or entire ducer ?

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated . Starting to get the thump fixation back as I have been chasing the pelagic fish .

Tried the pole ducer and just wasn't happy with it, ended up just mounting to the Ultrex.

Because of their options I suggest you take a look at www.FishingSpecialties.com Just my opinion.

Really depends on what you're looking for.

Several companies make transducer mounts for the forward facing sonar. Some are independent of the TM and mount on some kind of bracket or RAM style mount. Some will mount directly to the TM but can be moved independently of the TM. They range in price from a couple hundred dollars for the separate mounts to over a thousand for those that mount to the TM but move independently.

Just google "live scope transducer mount" and you'll get many options.


"Life is a matter of luck and the odds of success are in no way enhanced by extreme caution." - Erich Topp, German U-boat Commander, 1943.

When in doubt, set the hook.

I'm more of a bass guy but I just bought this one and I like it. Had a few gripes and called them on to discuss but it's the best I have seen for the price.

I built my Livescope pole from an old tripod speaker stand. It is aluminum, lightweight and sturdy. I mounted it using parts designed for bimini tops and 1" aluminum tube. I've got about $50.00 in parts.
The handle is from an old hand control extension I had laying around. I bought a thumb screw (not shown) and simply loosen the thumb screw to remove it when not using.

I have a PVC pole ducer and it is anything but flimsy. If done right, I really feel like they can't be beat for the price. I just can't justify spending 250$ on one that does the same thing.

LOL.....I'm with you on having it on the TM...... It does take work with having to point the TM at the fish or structure....
BUT I'd rather deal with that than an extra mechanism that you will still have to adjust to keep on the structure.....
Some of the poles I've seen I wouldn't put on a remote control boat..... pure junk....LOL

There is only one "Poleducer".

Stop by the shop and put your hands on one. Check out the boats in the shop that have it installed. I would be happy to show you around and hook you up with a great solution for mounting any Live Sonar transducer to the Poleducer.

Simply raise and lower the Poleducer all day. Only stow and deploy the Poleducer when launching and loading the boat.

I ran my pvc pole that I made for about a year and recently installed the Fishing Specialties pole. Should’ve ditched my pvc pole sooner.
