The Best Rod Carrier Available
|The RodLoft rod carrier for SUVs and related
vechicles is something I've had quite a bit of personal experience with.
Plain and simple, they're terriffic. It's probably the best $99 ($50 less
than what I paid two years ago) you'll spend to protect your expensive flyrods
while making them readily available. How many times have you gotten off
the river with your friends in the dark and you're in a hurry to pack up.
You end up breaking down your rod and tossing it in with other gear or trying
to find your rod case which has conveniently disappeared. Wouldn't it be
nice to leave your outfit intact and simply snap it into a rod holder that
keeps it out of harm's way? Need I say more?
| To be sure you can buy a roof racks and truck
bed rod carriers (I've used both) but having something that keeps your rods
safe inside the vehicle is far better. Any system you buy should be able
to work in various cars, accommodate multiple rods and be expandable. The
RodLoft meets these requirements .
The original RodLoft product has been replaced by the redesigned RodLoft PRO. All of the changes were based on input from fishermen who were using the original product and the results were very positive. According to the company there were four major goals to achieve with the new version:
1) Fit today's vans, station wagons, SUV's, sport wagons, crossovers
and trucks with caps on the bed with ease - no drilling or permanent installation;
Changes include additional mounting options, stiffer support bars, beefy security straps, tougher and more durable foam padding, adjustable rod carriers for all sizes and types of rods, double suction couplers, and stainless steel components.
The six mounting options consist of:
Dual suction couplers (2);
