Great product!

Ordered this beauty at the Fly Fishing Show. It was delivered within a week. The quality and design is outstanding. Can’t wait to use it.

Great product - better staff

It’s a great piece and well thought out. For my TRXSTLE, I do find it easier to slide section 2 into 3 before sliding it into section four. You can’t beat the set up with locking system and the ease of set up. It’s a little hefty to be carrying around the airport when collapsed, but It’s solid and the rods are safe!


Absolutely love this system. I was ghetto rigging inside my SUV with a bungee system that was not appealing and a safety hazard for clients sitting the back. Now I can have my 10’ rods safe and secure on my roof rack and still have room for my rooftop tent.

Game Changer

I often drive or fly long distances for weeks long fly fishing excursions. This unique rod carrier / locker suits that trip type perfectly. I had previously made my own out of PVC as the Titan/ Denver lockers were too bulky and heavy to either put in my truck or on a flight. The CRC system finally solved that for me. Thank you.

Great product and event better company!

I love my new CRC! The v1.5 upgrade process was simply awesome and pretty pain-free. The new liner design make a good product a great product! I'm very please with how well the CRC system keeps my rods safe, even on long, rough, road-trips! And service after the sale? Simple phenomenal, this company stands behind their product, PERIOD! They have gone above and beyond with customer service! Thanks Trxstle!
