Here is a quick and effective rod holder I made. Took a few hours as I painted mine. Mine holds 21 rods with reels on and the rods are held vertically with no pressure on the blanks. All you need is some plywood or particle board, some 1.5 inch PVC pipe and a 1.5 inch hole saw. When laying out holes for drilling make sure you give enough space between for reels to fit comfortably. Nice thing about this design is you can make it as big or small as you want. Cost is no more then $20-$25 for materials. The hole saw goes on a drill and can be used to make many rod holders. Add your Rod Gloves and your protected too!
