If I had it to do over I'd go with Lee's Sidewinder bases. Simple and bullet proof, I have TACO and I don't need all the extra positions, I only use two in the vertical and two on the swing out. If I had the extra money Carbon Fiber poles.

Kicked around a lot of things before getting my outrigger bases .Really thought about the Leeís that you just pull on the collar to relocate the arm but went with the Taco 280ís manly because they were what everyone else was putting on . Canít say I have any issues with them BUT spinning the knob loose while lifting the outrigger then jiggling it so it he notches line up so I can retighten the knob can be a Pain in the ass while standing on the gunnel underway as itís just not a convenient place to do it at the dock. second thought is I didnít spend the bucks on Graphite outriggers might have made it easier than lifting the 18í taco aluminum ones I have. Itís a little thing but hey make life easier on yourself

I have the Taco's but they require maintenance. The factory does a terrible job of lubing the moving parts properly so my advice is to partially disassemble them before installation and apply good marine grease. Also, make sure the detent ball and spring the holds the crank is well oiled and stays that way. If you do this you will love them. If not, good luck with Taco resolving any issues. Their product quality is OK but if you really want quality and service go with Gemlux.
