Pretty ingenious. That would be a ticket magnet here in CA. I'm going to be stuck with a roof rack on my HT if I want to tote my surf rods to the coast or live with them sticking out between the seats.

When my rods are all the way to the gate they still reach past the passenger seat. It is just a matter of time before I (or my passenger) breaks them.

Looks cool. I would notch out the top of each tube so the reel can slide down a bit more and keep it true/straight in the holder. Otherwise they will start spinning and slamming each other while on the beach.

I got a chance to test this out this weekend. Rods in the holder doing 60mph for a 2hr drive and had no problems.

I was wondering why you didn't just buy this:

http://www.quadratec.com/products/92038_11_07.htm

Or this

http://www.quadratec.com/products/92038_10_07.htm

I'm not knocking what you made and I can appreciate the sense of satisfaction that comes with building it yourself, but your original post says you didn't like any you found. My question is more of what is wrong with either of these two options I posted, except maybe the price?

My rods wouldn't fit in those. The bases of my rods are too thick and don't fit in normal sized rod holders. Also, the handle of the rod is 3ft long and I needed them to sit as low as possible. I used cross fittings and not tee's on the pvc holder I made so the handle slips through and the rods rest on the Jeeps C-channel just behind the front bumper. The price was also a motivator. The whole thing only cost me around $35.

Sometimes itís the fun and pride in making up your own stuff all the while saving yourself some significant money in the process for the most part.

I was wondering how you attached your setup to the bumper and also if you had to leave the plastic part of the bumper off?

Cool.

You could probably pull a para-sailor with that setup.. You know fly fishing for shark.

Dude that is B-A! I'm a big fan of coming up with stuff instead of buying and this is very well executed! I need to go fishing with you, but I don't think my rods can handle shark lol
