3 crc systems at different lengths on the adventure van

At only 15 lbs, it's easy to bring the CRC System anywhere in carry mode.  Take it on the plane or store it someplace convenient when not in use.  When you're ready to use your CRC System, mount it in any of it's four telescopic lengths in minutes using our patented, locking, quick-clamp system.

BONUS: The low profile, aerodynamic shape is quiet and means more clearance for your vehicle's hatch or canopy. 

complete protection

Your guides are always safe.  With our reel up design, the weight of your rod won't break your guides while driving on rough roads.  In addition, you'll never snag a guide when inserting a rod.  If reel up wasn't enough, our soft walled, suspended liners and padded housing ensure your gear stays safe.

quick clamp system

The CRC System is designed to fit on all major manufacturer cross bars, from round to square to aero.  The included pair of quick clamps lock onto your roof rack with no additional tools in just minutes.

Great system!

I had been looking at buying a roof top carrier for my fly rods for a while and finally decided on this system because of the reel up design. I also got the locking mounts for it. It is easy to put on and take off, which is nice for longer trips. I also really like how easy it telescopes open and closed. I telescope it down and throw it in the back of my truck if I have a long highway drive to my fishing destination, then put in on while I'm there and use it while I'm fishing. I also have been getting a lot of questions about it, so people notice it and may be in the market for one. I enjoy giving them my experience.

Bought this as a season bonus for myself and couldn't be happier! Rods are at the ready when it's time to get on the water and keep ahead of the pack!
I use this on my Subaru Outback mounted next to a rooftop box carrier with just enough room to spare. I would recommend getting the locking bar clamps if you plan on traveling with this.
Bonus, conversation starter at the boat launches! Clients love it!

Beyond epic!

This system is amazing! Fairly certain the trout gods have divinely blessed the construction of the Trxstle! Having all rods rigged and ready to go for myself, wife and 2 boys is amazing and means a few extra casts for me! Secure, and bomber..mounted on my Jeep that sees some pretty rough off-road use! Highly recommend!
