3 crc systems at different lengths on the adventure van

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. 

complete protection

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.

quick clamp system

The CRC System is designed to fit on all major manufacturer cross bars, from round to square to aero.  The included pair of quick clamps lock onto your roof rack with no additional tools in just minutes.

Nice Piece ! we go. I replaced a competitors version with the Trxstle mainly because of the 'guides up' configuration. You may think that's not a big deal but , especially on 7wt and larger the physical weight of the reel really puts a load on that first guide especially offroad. It doesn't matter if they are cheap rods or expensive , there ain't no reason to break em. I didn't think the 'collapsible' feature was much of a benefit ,but if you wanted to take it off for some reason it would make it easier to store. The lock kit is a no brainer , must have it ! Now to future products and purchases......I would pay extra for an 'optional' aluminum mounting bracket ! This one has been in Florida now for a few months (needs stainless springs on the lid). How about a spinning rod version ? Ya'll Rock...Fish On.

Trexstle rod carrier

Just got my rod carrier and uses it yesterday. Works great!

Great job. 👍🏽

Picked mine up at Sheels in Colorado. So glad I found this. Was about to purchase a different product but so far I find the Trxstle not only a better value but also a better fit for me in every way. I really appreciate the eyes up design. Looking forward to other innovations the folks at Trxstles bring to the fly fishing community.

V 2.0

The v2.0 is bullet proof with a hint of sexy ness it will complement any vehicle but most of all it will securely protect your most prized fly rods

Awesome Rod Carrier

After researching several well known rod carriers I chose the Trxstle CRC system V 2.0.
One of the main reasons was the reel up, eyes up storage to protect my rods.
After receiving and installing I was fully impressed with the design, sturdiness and ease of installation.
I will be purchasing a 2nd unit and would highly recommend this rod carrier.
