Omega custom tackle
Hey skeet..the carbon fiber is the actual handle of the rod, not a wrap. When I first looked at them, I thought that they would be slick as hell when they get wet. But they actually have a texture to them. And as they get more "broke in" so to say, they should be awesome. but so far I have no complaints about the carbon fiber. Plus it looks cool...

The Castaic Platinum? Do you use them for Musky?
Are they as good as they look?
Very nice, especially the way you have the rods hanging from the rafters.
Some of those swimbaits are bigger than the fish I've been catchn' lately in my local pond. Come to think of it, the swimbaits even look better too!

How do you like your Quantum PT Tour Edition???
I've been looking to get one...what technique are you using it for?
And thanks chuck! The rafters are actually a 24'x4' platform that I built and lag bolted to the wall studs then suspended it with steel cables from the roof rafters for garage storage. I was in need somewhere to put my rods cause the wife didnt like em layin around the house , so I went to wally world and got those vynl covered coffee cup hooks and some velcro cable straps and went to town. I used the hooks for the rod ends and just looped the velcro straps around the handles and hung em up. Works like a charm...Who needs to spend a few hundred bucks on a rod storage system when you can spend 20 and use the rest to pay the bait monkey...
I had the same problem with toy storage until some of my kIds left home. I turned a bed room into my a get away. My wife says it looks like a tackle store.
