Cool Rod racks. 8,10, and 17 place. truck bed mount available. Bent butt options

I am now able to order the PVC fitting in plain white with no bar code so they look a little nicer. In the past I just faced all the bar codes toward the back but now both sides and all the caps will be plain white.

New sizes now available!
I have made some changes to the sizes of these racks in response to requests for "Bigger Racks"

Originally designed as a display for our Rod Holder Flag Poles, these PVC fishing rod storage racks have become very popular. I SELL THESE FOR LESS THAN YOUR COST TO BUILD THEM YOURSELF. I buy the material wholesale directly from the manufacturer in very large quantities. PLEASE price out the material to build them yourself and then give me a call

I am updating this thread with what it would cost you to build these yourself using pricing from my local Home Depot. I know prices vary somewhat across the country but this should give you an idea of cost.


So far I have priced out the truck bed rod racks and will do the rest today.


6 place truck bed rack

Price $40.00
Your cost to build yourself $45.00

12 place truck bed rack

Price $60.00
Your cost to build $62.00

Spacing between bent butt rod holders is 8.5" center to center. Includes stainless steel screws to engage rod gimbles on bent butts so they don't turn in the rack.

Portable PVC fishing rod racks. Holds 8 , 10 or 17 rods with butts up to 1-1/2" diameter. Legs can be folded flat for storage. Very strong and stable. Plenty of spacing between reels to make cleaning and rigging easy without handles getting caught in the reel next to it.

Perfect for storage, rinsing after a day of salt water fishing, or transporting in the back of your truck. Also for storing your boat cleaning brushes.
No more laying your rods on the floor while rigging for your upcoming trip.
Great inexpensive option for store displays
Racks ship with all glued connection complete. Just slide legs and center support into fittings and your done. NO GLUING REQUIRED! All sharp edges are deburred and chamferred to prevent cuts and bloody knuckles during rigging.
Comparable plastic racks start at $50 plus shipping and tax and don't hold half the rods.


8 and 10 rack measures 24" long x 14" tall x 18" wide fully assembled.
17 racks measure 45" long x 14" tall x 18" wide fully assembled.

Strength tested to support 210lbs (me
) Do not try this at home

8 Rod Rack $29.99 plus shipping.
10 Rod Rack $34.99 Plus shipping.
17 Rod rack $59.99 Plus shipping

Bent butt holders add $2 per bent butt. Please let me know how many and how you want them arranged. They work well placed in the "feet" of the rod racks.

Shipping prices for the 8,10, and 17 rod racks are almost the same.
Shipping for two together is less than $1 more due to the way UPS calculates rates.
I have a UPS account and only charge what I pay. No "handling fees".

I can also ship my rod holder flagpoles and/or flags with the rod racks for additional savings. Contact me for a package. Flagpoles and flags can be seen at www.BoatingFlagpoles.com



Rod Racks are on my website for easier ordering.

Thanks as always,

Chris

Here's a competitors version for comparison. I don't understand why everyone feels the need to try and make a fortune off a simple design. I would rather sell a bunch and make a little having happy customers that will send more business my way.

If anyone needs one of my rod holder flag poles, I am pretty sure I can get it in the box with the rod rack so it wouldn't cost you any extra shipping.

use a cheap miter saw with a plywood blade on it. Camp a stop to the table. make all of one size cuts, then move the stop. A blind guy could make the cuts for you.You could probably cut 3-4 pieces at once. Will smoke that pliar
type cutter,.

Anyone looking for a well built, strong, lightweight and functional rod rack should buy one of these !!!!!!

I just built my own today using Mr. Demeanor's design, but I built it with two rows, 6 rods per row.

Let me tell y'all, I spent over $50.00 in material building a double rack.

For the $30.00 Mr. Demeanor is selling these for, you couldn't hardly do it yourself.

Awesome product with a great price !!!!

P.S. Don't forget to drill drain holes along the bottom some where if your going to use it as a wash rack

Would love to see this design evolve into something for bent butts.

I decided to order two and got them on Friday. They are well built and strong as advertised! I put one in the garage for some lesser rods and put my Hawaiian sling shafts and pole spear in it too. The other one is in the house in a spare closet for my nicer trolling outfits (want to protect those from the Florida humidity).


Thanks Mr. Demeanor! Great deal!

Here is the one I built off of Mr. Demeanor's design. Like I said before, you can't build one for less than he is selling these. I only built this one cause I wanted a custom design. I included two bent butt holders diagonal and opposite one another.

Plus I got a little sloppy with the glue LOL

If you're considering these buy 2. He can ship 2 for almost the same shipping price as 1 & you'll wish you had 2 once you get them. I doubt you can buy the materials any cheaper & your time is worth something...

My attorney will be in touch

One problem I see is that you used schedule 40 for the uprights which only gives you 1-1/4" ID so you may have a problem getting some of your butts in there. Schedule 160 (which can be hard to find) has a 1-1/2" ID.

I'll give you my "idea" since I have no idea when I would have the time to try and build it and and you are certainly "the man" right now with the system and materials.

Make a "cart" version of this. Drill the drainage holes, and this would by the perfect dockside buddy!

I store my trolling rods in the garage and it would be really nice to just load them at the dock, rinse, and store. I suggest decent sized plastic wheels for the grass or other non-smooth surface.

I have seen a few alluminum versions of what I am describing, but they are quite expensive.

I will buy the test product. 8-10 rod holders should be the minimum.

Thanks,
Joe

With rods in the extra 4 holders it also adds stability
