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.

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.

CRC System Mounting Distances

Please note the minimum mounting distance for any extended mounting of the CRC. The only exception to this rule is if you are mounting the unit when in the fully collapsed position. We recommend a minimum of 32" between mounting points.
