For those who end up with too many rods and reels, here's a good solution. This set-up will hold 36 or more if you double up or go up to 3" pvc. This was made with 2x4s and 2" thin-wall pvc.

Good idea. I might use that concept in my truck camper shell.

The first 36 were for saltwater rigs. Got the next 18 up for freshwater baitcasting rigs. It's nice to have all your rigs in one place so you can decide what you need for whatever type of trip you are taking. I'm not running a bass boat right now, so can't keep my rods in the boat.

Very nice...I have seen a system to mount them on the inside of your garage door. No way I would do that in case the door gets off track or breaks a spring and twist panels possibly tearing up rods.

I did a bunch of digging for ideas on the web, mostly Pintrest. I found these at Ace Hardware.

Again the downside was the wife could see what I had and questioned the need for that many. I asked her about the 100 boxes of fabric in the sewing room, conversation over!!

If you’re talking about mine, I built them.

I did the ceiling mount but instead of buying and cutting PVC I used cardboard rod tubes from rods I'd ordered and sawed them up.
