KastKing's Rack'em Up

KastKing's Rack'em Up

24 Rod Rack

KastKing's Rack'em Up rod holders cater to the acquisitive nature of today's anglers.

Nowadays, many anglers acquire scores of rods and reels. And these anglers have found that storing them when they are not afloat and fishing with them can be a problematic endeavor.   According to Tom Gahan, a KastKing Rack'em rod holder solves that problem. Gahan is the marketing director at Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. of Garden City, Long Island, New York, which is the parent company of KastKing.

In Gahan's eyes, it is an ideal and affordable Christmas or Hanukkah gift for anglers to receive from their children and spouses. He noted that it is packaged so that it is an easy gift to wrap, and once the gift is opened, it is easy to assemble.

What's more, the angling world has heralded it as an award winner. It garnered the Best of Show Award at the 2015 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show.

It is available in three styles: a 12-rod one, a 24-rod one, and a foldable flat one that accommodates 12 rods.

The dimensions of the 12-rod rack are 15.5 inches by 17 inches by 12 inches, and it consumes 1.32 square feet of floor space.  It weighs three pounds.

The dimensions of the 24-rod rack are 28.5 inches by 29 inches by 13 inches, and it consumes 2.52 square feet of floor space.  It weighs 4.8 pounds. Gahan says it is the recommended size for larger rods and saltwater outfits. It is KastKing's best-selling model.

The foldable one weighs two pounds.

Its frame is rust-resistant and made from high-quality aluminum. They are durable, and even when they are chockfull of rods, they are easy to move from one locale to another.

It will accommodate rods  that have handles as large as 1 3/4 inches in diameter. The handle and the lower portions of the rod are held in place and protected by a foam cushion, and they will not overlap. It allows the rods to be stored in an up-right position, which keeps the blank of the rod from becoming slightly bent.  And kayak anglers can store their two-piece paddles and stakeout poles in the 24 Rack'em Up.

Gahan describes it as the state-of-the-art rod holder, and all of the others have become hopelessly old-fashioned.

The suggested-retail price for the 24-rod Rack'em Up is $69.98. The suggested-retail price for the 12-rod Rack'em Up is $59.98. The suggested-retail price for the foldable one is $59.98. But they can be purchased at some online venues for less than the suggested price.
