Quick FAQ's
Q: How long of a fly rod will it hold?
A: 11'6"

Q: Can I mount this in different lengths?
A: Yes! You can mount the CRC system in all 4 of its lengths. The 3/4 length is perfect for 9' fly rods!

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

Q: What size (weight) rod will it fit?
A: Measure your largest stripping guide on your rod. The CRC System has a 1.6" diameter (40mm) opening (largest fly rod carrier opening on the market). Usually rods over 8wt require measuring to ensure fit.

Q: What if I want to carry more than 2 rods?
A: We have a 2-pack option available for that!

Q: Can I take the CRC System through a car wash?
A: NO. Do not bring your CRC System through automated car wash systems. As with most roof racks and rack accessories, the mechanical elements of the car wash can become entangled and damage your CRC System, your vehicle, and the carwash itself.

Aaron A.
Nice rod case for travel.

The unit works as described. Collapses & extends with no issues.
I'll be honest, after spending $700 on a product it would have been nice for the manufacture to through in the $10 shoulder strap.
Take note fellow Anglers, it does not come with the shoulder strap. You will need to purchase it separate.

Almost perfect

Well I bought this with the only mounting bracket available and that was the standard bracket. Three hours later I calmed down and simply packed up the project until I could work out a better mount. I did speak to someone on the phone and they said they were going to get back to me with some other options but never heard back. My cross bars are 80-20 very standard. I used some off the shelf 80-20 components and starboard plastic to create a base that better supported the vault to prevent rocking. Simple threaded bolt through a threaded three hole 80/20 t nut and “bobs your uncle” goes on in minutes.

My second CRC - Better than ever!

Longer rods were causing me problems since they did not fit in my 2.0 CRC. Problem solved. The longer version and in an all black offering made it an easy call to upgrade. Depending on my setup: Now you see it. Now you don’t. There are some nice improvements with the 3.0 as well. I like the new door latch and the T slot mounts. This carrier saves me time and energy and I get more time on the river and less time putting up and taking down rods on short trips. Trxstle’s service is excellent to top it off.

Introducing: T-slot Mounts

Take advantage of your T-slot equipped rack crossbars with our new T-slot Mounts. Quickly and easily mount your CRC System with this locking, all metal mounting system.

Redesigned Housing & Hatch

The main housing has been overhauled with a new and improved 360° double baffle seal, and rigid, reinforced hatch opening that provides even greater security and strength.

Carry Rods Up To 11'6" Long

You've been asking for a longer Euro length rod carrier, so we went ahead and made one. The Euro Fly Rod Edition of the CRC System is the longest fly rod carrier on the market and accommodates two rods up to 11'6".

Adjustable Convenience

The patented telescopic design means the Euro Fly Rod Edition adjusts to four  different lengths with the push of a button. You can easily adjust or mount your CRC System to the length you need for the rods you want to carry. Tip: Mount the carrier in 3/4 length and carry rods up to 9' long, extend the carrier out to the euro rod 11'6" when you're ready to bring your longest rods.

Best In Class Rod & Reel Protection

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.

Top Shelf Hardware

A product is only as good as the nuts and bolts that make it whole. We've used the best grades of stainless steel and weather resistant materials throughout the CRC System, including upgraded hatch springs for a snappy feel and a polished finish on the telescopic stop buttons.

Everything You Need

Every CRC System ships with all 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 available like reel housing lights, shoulder straps, rod boot sleeves and more!

Ultra-Aerodynamic Design

The sleek shape of the Euro Edition CRC System fly rod carrier is the quietest, lowest drag design available. The split air foil design cuts through wind by directing airflow in the same way as an airplane wing. Also, it looks damn cool.


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.


Equipped with our patented soft-wall suspension mounted rod liners for premium rod protection and standard reel padding pre-installed to protect your reels. Each CRC System is built by professional fishing guides right here in Helena, MT. We know the demands you place on your equipment, and we've got your back!

Extending the CRC System to its four different mounting lengths is fast and easy.

How It Closes

Collapsing the CRC System is just as easy as extending it and requires no tools.
