I like the idea but they should be spread out more.
It actually isn't that bad. Since they are gripped by the rod you are able to offset the reels so that allos them to fit better. Would be an issue if using all catfish rods with big reels but with my other rods I can intermix. I am actually glad as space in my garage is at a premium, so this will allow me to hang more rods in a smaller area. I may put up some shelves or something in the saved space.I like the idea but they should be spread out more.
