How many rods can you actually store in a Skeeter zx250? Looks like the new zxr has the same compartmental lay out as the zx. I am seriously considering upgrading to the zxr, but I am very concerned about the rod storage. I am just not sure I like the compartmental design.

I have a 2019 ZX 250, and I know I've gotten 15 in there with rod sleeves. Probably closer to 20, but not 100% on that. That's no spinning reels all baitcasters.

2019 ZX250 - I’ve had 20 baitcasters in the port side rod box, all with rod socks, plus 4 spinning rods in the left half of the center box. Could have fit plenty more in the center boxes.

That helps Skeeterhunter. Looks like plenty of rod space for me. I just sure hope they are keeping the cooler between the seats. The photo on the website doesn’t show one.

I could be wrong because I have no idea how it affected sales but my gut reaction to that split deck design is that it is a massive flop. I would hate having 4 separate long compartments like that. I want all my rods in one place.

that split design woks really well since most of my stuff is starboard and my dad keeps his on the port side. With the exception of getting out crappie gear, i rarely open half of the storage.

There is about a 3-4 month lead time at Skeeter priir to ZXR dropping. I was leery about it when I bought mine but really like it now. My most used rods stay in center storage while others stay in port storage.

We did some testing back in January and it was easy to get 40-50 rods to fit in the boat. Reality is tgere is no reason to carry that many but the versatility it has is pretty nice at least to me.

I'm wanting the ZXR because of the seats, cup holder, tool holder and battery area lid. The few things about my '19 that bug me seem to have been fixed
