Thule's Cast Away is the first of its kind, a car top mount for your fishing rods. A padded tip holder keeps your shafts from flailing around when you're doing 70 to get to the river before a hatch, and a heavy duty locking ABS box in the rear protects those reels that probably cost more than your car. The Cast Away will work with any rod type, and will mount to Thule, Yakima, and most factory rack systems. In fact, the Cast Away does everything but make the fish bite. We're still working on that one.
The Thule Cast Away does a good job of holding the rods unfortunately it is a very tight fit for 4 rods with the reels in the reel box. I use mostly spinning reels and was unable to fit 4 rods and reels in the holder. Removing the reels was not a big issue but the box part of the Cast Away was the reason I opted to pay a little more for the Thule Rod holder as opposed to another brand.
