TRXSTLE is a newly designed upward fly-rod carrier which advertises a rigid plastic reel housing, durable aluminum rod tubing, and an adjustable length to fit any vehicle. The TRXSTLE fly rod carrier is a two rod carrier with convenient storage for fly rods and easy mounting hardware. While the structure of the carrier appears secure and may be lighter than others, the protection from the elements such as hail, rain, etc. leaves room to be desired. On the other hand, the “no snag” reel design and ability to transform the carrier into a backpack option does give some flexibility for those wishing to carry their rods not only on their vehicle, but on their back as well. While the TRXSTLE rod carrier is a new system that may one day offer a more durable and rigid design, for today, the Ultimate Rod Case still appears to be a more sturdy option for adventurers looking to fish high alpine lakes or driving through rough terrain.
