Guide Review - Restin'Ready Rod Holder

I was given the opportunity to try a Restin'Ready recently, and though I don't do a lot of bank fishing, I found this new rod holding idea to be just the ticket for the shorebound angler.

The holder comes in a canvas carrying case, complete with permanently attached assembly instructions. It is well built, made from heavy gauge stainless steel, and that means no rust! This one will last you a lifetime.

It worked well for me using the complete set-up, including the bottom braces. I found that setting my 48 quart cooler on the braces provided a very stable platform on which to rest my rod.

My rod was held securely in place, with the casting reel up, and the angle was ideal for detecting a bite while not allowing the fish to pull the holder over. Spring assemblies act to keep the rod from twisting around in the holder. That means spinning rods stay put with the reel down and casting rods stay put with the reel up. It really does work!

I tried the Restin'Ready on the beach, and while the instructions provide for pushing the front and rear pieces into the sand, I found that using the bottom braces worked better. The sand was not hard enough to keep the holder as stable as the bottom braces. Once I put the bottom braces in place, I was home free. No more driving PVC pipes into the sand every time I move! I simply pick up the Restin'Ready and move!

I highly recommend this one! It works extremely well and it will last a lifetime!
