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!

CRC Sytem

The CRC system took the rod rack industry by the horns! TRXSTLE has put a lot of thought and research into their design. The rack changed everything from day one, allowing a telescoping platform to be easily adjusted to fit your needs (length/personal carry). The small details such as having a reel box which inverts your reel allowing it to ride upright to save your guides is my favorite aspect! From day one the crew and customer support have been extremely helpful and actually care about their product and their customers! I had a few issues with the old style liners but the company stood by their product the entire time and even released the new V1.5 liners which changed everything! I Would highly recommend the CRC to anyone who wants a quality product with a quality company behind it at an affordable price!
