Default Ceiling Rod Racks

Thanks to everyone who answered my post about horizontal rod storage. They're nothing fancy but it helped clean up a corner of the room and rods don't fall over when I dig through them now. I made one for two piece rods and one for four piece rods. I might build another one for my larger diameter multi-rod tubes also.

Let her know that this is about half of my rods if it will help convince her that your collection is under control. If the number of rods I own is greater than the number of years I've been around, I might start thinking I have too many. I think the big multi-rod tubes are going to stay in the corner instead of going on the ceiling.

Nice...mind if I copy? By the way...I noticed the two triangular TFO cases....I am in love with those tubes! No rolling around.

The triangle tubes are nice. I also have a square 4-5 rod tube from BW that goes with me on most trips. No worries about it rolling off the hood of the truck.

You know, now that I think about .....you are correct. I have a vintage Feralite 6ft 5wt that has a triangular tube (hard plastic). I guess good ideas tend to stick around!

Wish every company used a triangular tube, nothing more annoying than when a tube gets loose in the back of the truck and you hear it banging around with every turn.

Friend of mine has a similar set up in his motor home; just a bungee cord 'snaked around' the tubes/wood to hold them in place while driving. Works a treat.
