Is there room for a reel on Ski or Rod holders on roof rack?

Where are they biting? How big was the one you caught?

Is there room for a reel on Ski or Rod holders on roof rack?

Unread post by Mickon » July 13th, 2014, 7:33 pm

I am getting a rhino roof rack fitted to my new Colorado. My question is I want to get one of those ski holder type racks to be able to carry fishing rods (with reels attached) when driving along the beach. Rhino rack make one as does Thule and rola, my concern is the height and whether there is enough clearance to take an alvey 650 reel. It measures 220mm from underneath rod to the outside of reel.

Has anyone got any experience with these types of holders and is there enough room for the reel on the rod.
