The Rod Racks from Tight Line Enterprises were originally designed for the fly fisher who travels from hole to hole by automobile and wishes to transport his valuable and delicate rods without the time and inconvenience of breakdown and re-rigging. The inherent beauty of the system is that it has two carrier assemblies capable of transporting up to four rods. It mounts on the car, pick-up or SUV by means of powerful magnets andr vacuum cups that can be easily attached and removed. Therefore it is unnecessary to purchase a new rod carrier every time you change vehicles. The system is lightweight and portable enough to pack in your luggage on a fly-in trip for use on your rental car. An especially attractive product feature is the open-ended design that allows convenient mounting and removal of the rods. This design was specifically developed to accommodate fly rods without a fighting butt to avoid crushing your fly line in a pinch-point against the rod holder. Although originally designed for fly rods, we have found this product is sturdy enough to carry large surf rods and most any other fishing rod that won’t fit conveniently into your vehicle.
