Default Truck bed rod holder

Who makes a good aluminum rocket style truck bed rod holder? I have done a few searches on here and saw Carolina aluminum product used to make a really good one but don’t think they’re making them anymore. I haven’t been able to get in touch with them in months. Are there any others that y’all know of that makes these? Looking for one that sits in the bed so I can easily remove it when not in use. Or one that fits in the f250 side bed cleat locks. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have one of these (in a GMC 1500). Works great, I've had it for 7-8 years.

I had a company near Seattle build me a 15-hole headache rack. Easy to bolt on and off and it kept the rods above any items in the truck bed. Shipping might be a bit prohibitive to get one to the eastern shore.

I made one out of PVC for the back of my 019 Ram.
Holds 10 rods, total cost-$40, maybe 1/2 hour to make. Youtube it. Works great!!

I have tried again reaching out to Carolina aluminum two days ago through their contact tab on the website....No response, so not sure what’s going on there. Thanks for all the reply’s and will look into a few of these.
