FAQ

Q: Can I mount this upside down?
A: The CRC System is not designed to be mounted upside down as this eliminates the benefits of the Reels-Up design.

Q: How long does it take to install?
A: The CRC System installs in just a few minutes. It's the fastest installation available on the market today.

Q: Does it lock?
A: Yes, the reel compartment has a push button, locking latch and the mounting clamps use custom security nuts or our optional Lock Body Clamp Kit upgrade.

Q: How long of a fly rod will it hold?
A: 10'4"

Q: How big of a reel will it hold?
A: Up to a 4.5" arbor diameter.

Q: What size (weight) rod will it fit?

telescopic

The CRC System extends from just 44" out to a 10'4" total length quickly, easily, and without any tools. It mounts in any of its four lengths so you can use the product how you want, when you want. At just 15 lbs. you can take the rod carrier with you anywhere and easily mount it on any vehicle in seconds.

reels-up

The CRC System is designed with the reels of your fly rods facing up. This protects the fragile guides from carrying the weight of your rod. This orientation also allows us to incorporate our cork cradle rod support, ensuring the weight of your rod and reel is fully supported and not cantilevered out in space, potentially damaging your gear.

reels-up

Designed to transport your rods with the reels facing up - The CRC System protects the rod guides from carrying the weight of your rod and eliminates any snags when inserting and removing your gear.

Amazing Design

When looking for rod transportation solutions, you shouldn’t look past the CRC. From completely collapsed, all the way to fully extended it really does meet the needs of basically every situation. You also have the added relief knowing your rods are secure with the ability to lock them up! Don’t spend the time rigging up before and breaking down after each time you hit the water, look into this system and you’ll be glad you did.

Subi safe and collapsible!

First off kudos for making the rod system easy to install and lightweight enough to do so alone. This system is perfect go road trips to your favorite fishing waters as well as hoping from spot to spot. Love it and how much easier this has made hitting the water at the crack of dawn.
