The Rod Rack was created by company founder and designer Wayne Smith. Mr. Smith was not happy with his DIY strap rack or any of the racks on the market, so he designed his ultimate rack.
Mr. Smith comments, “My SUV does double duty as a family car and work truck, so a permanent rod rack doesn't work for me, and for lots of reasons I don’t like using exterior mounts. I wanted a serious piece of equipment that was quick and easy to install, fast to stow, and easy to use. It had to have no-nonsense rod holders able to carry my delicate fly rods, while being strong enough to carry my heavy steelhead and saltwater outfits. It was equally important that the rear strap could be mounted where my rods can be easily reached. The system couldn't be finicky and had to be tough enough for guides who’ll use them every-day in trying conditions. Prototypes must be tested in the field so it took us over two years to refine the system, but it was worth it. I believe we got it right and I’m proud of the final product.”
