CRC FLY ROD CARRIER V2.0
Trxstle’s CRC represents a whole new concept in rod carriers. Designed to mount to the exterior of vehicles, the carrier can enclose two entire rods and reels sitting face up to protect their various delicate components. Made of anodized aluminum with closed-cell EVA foam padding inside, the CRC telescopes from four to 10 feet in length, and weighs 15 pounds. It mounts to vehicles with the included clamps, but can be easily removed and used as a portable case instead.
