The RodMounts Sumo Fishing Rod Carrier offers the ultimate in versatility and performance for transporting rods of all types, far exceeding anything else on the market. The Sumo can transport up to 6 rods of all types, allowing the rods to be staggered or offset so that the reels don't interfere with each.
The Sumo is available in two different models:
The Sumo MAGNETIC fly rod carrier features 4 independent magnet assemblies that generate 95 pounds of pull-force each and will adhere to any steel surface. Each magnet assembly features a silicone boot to prevent scratches to the paint. Recommended maximum speed is 45 mph.
The Sumo SUCTION rod carrier uses 4 independent "lever-lock" suction mounts to create force and adhere to any smooth non-porous surface. The Sumo Suction works great on windshields and sunroofs.
Ball and socket connections and vertical pivots provide unequaled flexibility to mount to any passenger vehicle. The Sumo can mount to more cars in more places than any other product in its category. Ball and sockets allow SUMO to be postioned out of the line of direct sight for driver and passengers so you can see where you're going.
An additional ball and socket connection in the rod rest allows rods to be level.
Double straps maintain firm yet gentle pressure on your rods cushioned by the foam pads preventing side movement. Pull-rings engage with retention notches to keep your rods firmly in place.
Breaks down for storage and weighs only 2 pounds.
Suction Mounts can be interchanged with Magnet Mounts for cars with steel hoods and roofs. Magnet Mounts are sold separately.
