Reels Up Design

Reels-up won't break rods/guides. Other "rod vault" style carriers will break your gear. When the reels face down, impacts and stress are transferred to the rod guides during travel, and this orientation creates snag-ups when inserting and removing the fly rod.

Built By Guides

Our manufacturing and assembly team members are all current or former fly fishing guides. We are proud to make the CRC System in Helena, MT - now available in both original silver and the new Blackout colorway.

The Most Versatile

Adjustable and telescopic for more options on how you use it, how it looks on your ride, and IF you want it on your ride full time or not. The CRC mounts at full length on any vehicle, but you can also run it at 3/4 length for your car, half length in your truck bed, or even fully collapsed to store it in your trunk.

Best In Class

We build every CRC System here in Helena, MT with USA manufactured rod liners that suspend your fly rods inside the aluminum sections with soft walled HDPE plastic mounted on our proprietary spring system. And every CRC System comes standard with installed reel padding inside the main housing. Because you bought this to protect your gear, and we take that seriously.

Fast, Easy, No Tools Mounting

Every CRC System ships with all the necessary hardware to mount it to your vehicle's rack right out of the box. Standard features include our patented, secure quick clamp mounts, full padding in the reel housing and locking access to your rods. Looking to customize your carrier further? We've got you covered with great accessory options, like reel housing lights, shoulder straps, rod boot sleeves and more!

Fantastic Rod Carrier!

Just received my blackout edition of this fly rod carrier - LOVE IT! Super easy to install and has already saved me a ton of time. Really smart design with the rod guides facing up so they don't break and damage my rods.

Very good for two rods

Over a very good product. 9/10. Installation was a little more of a chore. The custom nut/wrench thing is more trouble than it's worth. Had to call customer service and they were very responsive and helpful. My only gripe is that I needed a 4-rod carrier and I didn't look closely enough at the description of the four-rod carrier - it's just two separate two-rod holders with a $150 discount on the second one. My mistake. I would have preferred a 4-rod carrier with a single mount or as a single unit.

Dear Tim,

I hope this message finds you well.

I wanted to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for your review and candid feedback regarding the CRC System v3.0. Your insights are incredibly valuable to us, and we genuinely appreciate your continued support.

I understand you may have some questions regarding the design of the 4-rod carrier as two separate units rather than one large fixed version. Allow me to shed some light on our decision-making process.

After careful consideration and extensive deliberation, we concluded that key matching two 2-rod units offered several advantages over a single fixed 4-rod carrier. While the latter would require the use of four mounting clamps due to its size and weight, the former maintains versatility and ease of use. Here are some key benefits:

Versatility: The ability to move around existing rooftop accessories such as solar panels, skyboxes, and ski racks without compromising functionality, which may not be feasible with a single large fixed unit.

Separation: Customers have the flexibility to separate the units, allowing for various applications such as outfitting a friend's vehicle for a trip, attaching one to a boat trailer, or using one on a raft.

Length Options: With two separate units, users can choose to mount one in a shorter length for smaller or lighter rods while retaining the full extension for longer rods on the other unit.

While there are additional benefits to this design, these are the primary factors that guided our decision. We trust that this information provides you with reassurance in your choice and perhaps even sparks some creative ideas for alternative uses of your new gear.

Once again, thank you for your business and feedback. Your support means the world to us, and we are committed to continuously improving our products to better serve your needs.

Warm regards,

John Smigaj

Double up Trxsle

Have had many rod boxes but these are the best. Light, easy to take off if needed, store rods in house when off season comes and guides up so no catches.
