Actually, it is more accurate to say the new StarPort HD has been ‘rectangled’ off, but that’s gibberish. Here’s the takeaway: Originally round, with a small footprint and low profile, Railblaza has modified its accessory mounting base to fit in the same rectangular footprint as the blocky versions of Scotty, RAM and Cannon mounts. Just look at the picture, you’ll get the idea.

The StarPort HD also fits on many accessory track systems using tool-free hardware.

Railblaza offers a wide variety of rod holders, electronics cradles and lighting accessories via US distributor Yak-Gear.

The StarPort HD can also be used with many accessory track systems. It features tool-free adjustment.
