Reel Stand for the bigger Stella SW reels

Was talking to Gomexus as they do a nice foldable titanium reel stand for the smaller reels (to keep reel of rocks etc) and I suggested make one for the bigger Stellas / daiwas as quite a lot of people use the bigger reels from shore as well not just offshore.. and nobody seems to make them. 

 

Well they emailed me and said they have looked at it and should be ready in few months...

 

Now that is a company that listens to feedback

 

Looking forward to getting mine

He had a jig slingshot back from a fish mouth. Hit the blank.  Then a while later on another fish, snap. Clean at 1/3 from tip.  I’m helping him get a new tip n

These reel stands seem to be the solution to a non-existant problem!

Just my two cents.

I think people like them as a guard for the left side of the reel for rockshore fishing in case of drops 

 

stand is a bad description 

 

like i said Eric was kind enough to include it on the reel he sent me 

 

i have yet to use it in that application but I could see how it might save your reel on a fall

It’s for saving reels from scratches.  If you lay it on the stand side you can crank the handle the rotor or bottom guard doesn’t rub the ground.  Very useful on a beach or rocks and concrete. 
 

some stands can also be used to balance the reel itself out while cranking, you can load the little tube with weights.

It’s 5Kish in a SW reel 

 

 

Ah ok. Yes Gomexus amongst others makes stands for the smaller reels but nobody I can find makes for the 14k 18k etc

Could you mount an offshore rod holder through a yeti or other sturdy roto molded storage box, drill two offset wholes in side to run a a srong cable bike lock, attach to unmovable object. It would suck watching a  $1200 plus rig get dragged into the ocean

Or buy a handle cap, drill a hole, put a screw in it and a nut and washer on the outside, should be functional, if not attractive.

Yeah I looked at that, but I am such a bling tart that I just couldn't bring myself to do it... also looked at getting one machined... but as Gomexus going to do.. will wait
