They offered a pre-order, so I took it. The new one can rotate which is huge IMO and the bungee cord can secure the rod. The clips seem a little easier to manipulate too as the previous metal ones were a little stiff.
I have a Vedavoo rod holder but it doesn’t work that great. The rod winds up going all over the place
I didn't take a 2nd rod yesterday, but I think it will work quite well with the bungee cord to secure it and the ability to rotate it whatever direction you need. Being able to mount it to a backpack or sling pack could be handy too.
I sure could use a good burger and a brew at Burgers 'N Blues right about now. Hey! I just thought of what I want to do at some point over the Labor Day holiday. An hour and 20 minute drive isn't too far is it? Naw!
