Over the last three or four years, I have probably broken two tips rattling around in the back of my pickup truck. In addition, when fishing from place to place, it's a real hassle to reassemble the rod, attach the reel, and thread the line at each stop. It subtracts from the overall quality of the experience and the amount of fishing time available. After doing a little bit of research, it looked like this product was the best at the cheapest price.

But, would it hold? I took a risk and spent the money. When it arrived I discovered it worked primarily by magnetic attachment. No biggie... until I was stunned to discover that my 2001 Ranger did not have a metal hood. Who would've thought that a 10-year-old truck would be made mostly out of some other material than metal? Geez... it's a truck! After some desperate trial and error, I discovered that the roof was metal and that the rack gripped tightly to it. Now the scary part... Would the rod fly off in use?

I wanted to fish several different spots on the the Savage River in Maryland and would drive and stop in multiple places. With a deep breath, I assembled an old fly rod (I did not want to risk a good one) and popped on a reel.

I am happy to report that there were no issues with this model running at 55 mph in a periodic downpour. The rod was in the rack for approximately 3 hours as I drove from place to place and I did not remove it until I was ready for the long haul home.

I did a few things to stack the deck in my favor. I used the hook keeper and tightened the line down to put pressure on the rod tip to make sure the sections would not wiggle free as the wind pushed to the rear. Then, to hold everything in place, I cranked down on the drag to keep the reel from moving and unspooling line.

Nary a problem. I will trust this to my good gear in the future! BUT! Before you buy it, make sure you have a metal section of your vehicle to attach it!

I live in Florida and HATE two piece fishing rods. I also don't have a truck, I drive a Lexus. This little wonder allows me to transport my rods outside the car, without marking the finish of the car. The bottoms are rubberized and leave no marks. When you remove them you are supposed to place the bottoms together for storage. When I do this my 14 year old son can not separate the two so this should give you a good idea of how strong the magnets are. However, when you grab the built in tab you can easily peel it off of your car. They are made well and easy to use although the bungees can be tight (Which I consider a good thing).

I regularly drive at speeds of up to 70 MPH with 4 rods on the car using these holders without any movement or and appearance as if I were about the lose the rods. More than this I can not go fishing here in Florida without some other angler asking "Where did you get those? What a great idea!"

My highest recommendation.

Great for short trips. I use this for my surf rods (9-10 ft.). Although the instructions tell you to mount it from engine hood to roof, I've mounted both on the roof and works just as well. The magnets are strong and secure at speeds up to 70 mph.

Gets my rods out of the pickup bed, away from the dog, etc. Great for traveling the gravel road along my favorite steelhead river, from hole to hole. When I'm done they fit OK behind the seat for next trip. Fit any rig.

So I have made many many purchases on amazon in the past and never felt the desire to write a review, however, this product changed my mind. I was having trouble transporting my fly fishing rods due to the overall size. I saw this advertised on amazon after a search and although skeptical I made the leap. My package arrived in 2 days and I removed them from the box and I was even more skeptical. I threw them in the truck and headed to the sierras. Just as advertised the holders were secured with magnets to the hood and roof. The rods were attached and I started off slowly. I was able to drive at speeds of 65mph (maybe a bit faster) on the highway between lakes and neither the rods or holders moved an inch. I was amazed!!! Great product and will highly rec!!!

These magnetic rod racks have made it much easier when moving to different sections of the river and car travel is necessary, I'm very particular about taking care of my flyrods ( since some rods are rather pricey). It did take a leap of faith to use the rod rack for the first time, now, after 10 or 15 trips, there is no hesitation, in my experience, the rods are not going to come off and the magnetic rod racks are not going to come loose from my vehicle.....if I am going to travel at highway speeds, I take my rods apart and put them away, don't want to get lazy and take a chance on pushing my luck!!
