Rod transporting

Curious on what kind of setups you all had for rod transportation.

 

Going on vacation I've tried many methods from tieing strings in the SUV and hanging them along the interior of the inside roof to putting them in my overhead thule carrier...

 

I'm mostly interested in the ski style gear or any custom built carriers for your roof racks. I'm thinking about something custom using pvc and styrofoam of some kind. What have you all done? Any photos to share!?

 

I know you're all a very creative bunch love to hear it!

I've not had a problem with the suction cups provided I wipe the surface first.  They do magnetic bases too which is fine as long as your muscle car doesn't have carbon fiber panels.

In use the Thule ski racks and like them a lot.

 

Just remember to close them when you are driving :banghd:

Hahahahaha

 

Been looking for some used ones. I just need to make sure they're narrow enough as I also have a thule cargo carrier up top.

The bazuka fits just the rods but no reels?  Put the reels in a separate case?

I had the same question. Also would be concerned about bouncing around. I literally just bought bubble wrap to wrap my rods individually before putting them in my cargo carrier. Problem is as I get larger rods especially a 70/30 split rod they won't fit in the carrier. My 10' barely fits now in the carrier and it's 50/50 split. I just got a 10'6" speed master and I think those extra 6 inches will cause a problem 

 

I may be zip tieing but that scares me to.

 

I might buy thick styrofoam padding, cut recesses into it and zip tie that to the bars so the rods have some cushion. Maybe with pvc pipe split down the middle I can have a locking mechanism near the reel area so they don't go anywhere and can even be locked
