Free up space to bring more friends on your next fishing trip by stowing up to 8 fully-rigged rods on your roof. This lockable carrier clamps on to your roof rack crossbars and provides quick access to your rods.


Excellent product. It frees up so much room in your car or SUV. No need to put the rear seats down. Less chance for entanglement and damage to rods and reels. Note the Malone Micro-Sport trailer in the picture. Another great etrailer purchase. Still awesome after 2 years


Very easy to install, and I was able to mount it to the upper deck of my homemade kayak trailer. Very secure, and it looks good!


Order and shipping: first rate. The ordering was simple and secure, and the item shipped quickly.
Product Quality: Excellent. The rack was very simple to install on my roof cross bars. I tested it with my fishing rods and found it easy to secure and store rods. I like the locking mechanisms provided. I will recommend Etrailer and Yakima to anyone looking for quality service and products.

still working great. I use them all the time.

I dont know what to think yet because I literally received the package yesterday. Im sure it’s fine because it’s Yakima but I won’t know how I like it for at least a week or two. This should be considered when spamming my email for reviews.

If you would like to update your review with your opinion of the rack, we would love to hear your feedback.
Katrina B - 10/07/2022


This reel deal fishing rack is indeed the real deal. Its got heavy duty construction, spring loaded arms that stay up, nice side buttons with built in locks, the clamps are completely adjustable, the rubber is heavy duty but flexible.. I mean, when I assembled the pieces i was very impressed. Well done Yakima and thanks etrailer for getting it to Hawaii so quickly!! Plenty of things take 30+ days getting here… y’all did it in less than a week. Thanks for the great product and the great service!


Every time I order from etrailer I am worried about the product fitting my vehicle. No worries. It always does. Just put in the vehicle you have in the search box and all will be good. The fishing rod / ski/ snowboard carrier is great. Designed well and easy to assemble. There is enough adaptability in the product that it would probably fit any vehicle's crossbars. Once built, it is easily removed and placed onto the vehicle. The videos that etrailer has on it's site are super helpful.


This fishing rod rack is exactly what I was looking for! Could not have been easier to install.


Absolutely love these! The keep at least 6 rods secure while driving, with zero worry they will detach. I love the ratchet-lock design, as you may have thicker handles or thin ones, but the pressure of the rubber seats keep them all nice and tight. I have had no issues with rattle or the bases coming loose.

Only issue you may watch out for: If you have long rods, such as a 13' Spey, the tips will bow and flex a lot in the wind. I keep those in the back of my SUV when traveling on freeways at high speeds, but transfer to the racks when on the river.


Nice rod holder. I would purchase again.


All ready for the trip to Ocean City MD!! Rods are secure and ready to travel. Very quick install on the Yakima HD rails. Undo the t-bolt fully, move the pivot point to the furthest position, re insert the t-bolt and tighten slowly. Great combo with the Yakima Overhaul system; I now have room for all of our vacation essentials. Thank you Bridget and the team at etrailer; I needed it fast and you got it to me!


Great way to transport rods. But you're realistically getting 5 boat or surf rods per rack not 6 because of the thicker grips. 6 or more for bass rods and the like, as advertised. They also work with the same key system, limiting the number of keys needed to access all Yakima products.


Unfortunately I did not have time to take pictures but, product was received with box ripped/open. With that said, the item was still in immaculate condition. Everything was included to mount. I am extremely satisfied with the service etrailer has given along with their quality of product's. Mahalo


Exactly what I ordered, un damaged, and arrived earlier than expected. Great experience.


I put the racks on and it was very easy and straight forward. I haven't put rods on yet as it will be a week before I leave to do some fishing.


Perfect for traveling! I trasported fishing rids from Kansas to Michigan with no issue.


This is exactly what I was looking for. I am able to hold all 5 of my rods and reels of varying sizes and can easily add more if I want. And thanks to George J from etrailer for keeping me up to date on my order status!


Works well on my Yakima Rack & Roll trailer. Easy to load rods. The rods are locked into place but reels are still somewhat vulnerable to theft if someone is really inclined to go after them. Therefore, when I'm using this, I don't leave my car and trailer anywhere I can't keep an eye on it.


Quality built product. Installation wasn't bad. I would definitely purchase again.


Easy to install. Perfect fit and functi on.


Hi Greg, I mounted it on top of my boat and used it just once to hold some fishing rods to get them out of the way while towing the boat. The rack works great and I like the locking feature. Good quality product.


Excellent product. Easy to install. Holds holds five poles firmly in place. Minus one star because it whistles over 60 mph


Great having the rods not inside the ca r.


Easy installation and pretty nice build quality. Only thing i wish was better was the lock. Its only a quarter turn with a key and feels a little on the cheap side. Overall, I'm happy with it


I ordered this item and it was delivered in great shape and in an expeditious manner.

  • Will the Yakima Reel Deal Fit on Square Cross Bars
    The Yakima Reel Deal # Y04089 is designed to fit on your square bars, but there are some adjustments that need to be made to the mounting brackets to make them fit a little more snugly. I've linked a review video we did on the Reel Deal and at around the 7:30 mark of the video Colin talks about how you'll want to adjust your brackets to mount your Reel Deal to square bars. You won't need to purchase any additional parts to make this work.

  • Reel Deal Compatibility with Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04089
    The Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04089 would work with a rod that has a Reel Deal accessory installed on it. I am not totally sure what you mean by Texan Cross Rail though.

  • Can Surf Fishing Rods Be Carried in the Yakima ReelDeal Fishing Rod Carrier
    When using the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 8 Fishing Poles # Y04089 you'll need to disassemble/separate any rods over 7 feet long. However, you won't have any issues with the thickness of the rods and your surf fishing rods will feet between the jaws of the ReelDeal without issue.

  • Can I Install Yakima ReelDeal 2022 Subaru Outback XT With LockNLoad Platform
    Yes, you can install the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 8 Fishing Poles, part # Y04089, in the channels of a LockNLoad Platform. You will need the Replacement T-Slot Mounting Hardware for Yakima FatCat and Whispbar Ski Carriers, part # 8860085. The existing clamping system of the ReelDeal must be removed to install the T-Slot hardware. I have included a product description link below.

  • Yakima ReelDeal Dimension Fit
    Glad you like the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04089. This clamshell style has a thick rubber portion to conform around the rods and can be used for ski's and snow boars as well. The measurement from the top of this rubber piece to the bottom of the clamp that attaches/rests to roof rack is 3-1/4" this rubber piece is 1" in height before compression. Clearance from the roof of your 2021 Subaru Outback will be an additional 2-1/2" from the top of your current roof rack....

  • Questions on the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier
    The Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier, # Y04089 mounts directly above the crossbars of your vehicle. This means the cross bars determine the placement/spread between the two clamps. So when it is stated to break down rods longer than 7 feet, this is a cautionary statement due to the flex of rods on that forward clamp. Some rods may have too much flex fom the headwinds and cause issues while driving. The # Y04089 comes with needed mounting hardware that has adjustments available....

  • Can Yakima RealDeal be Installed on Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket
    You can definitely install the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04089 to your Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070, but you will need to get the Loadbar # 8870042 to have a bar at the front for the RealDeal to install on. Aside from that you are good to go!

  • Will The Yakima ReelDeal Fit On Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars

This unit will work with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. The Thule WingBar Evo is considered an aero style cross bar. You will have no issues pairing them together.

  • Fishing Rod Carriers With Lifters For Extra Clearance For Larger Reel Rods
    The Yakima ReelDeal # Y04089 is the only rod holder that has the lifter brackets # Y8860037 to lift the carrier to gain extra clearance. You could get the Yakima FatCat # Y03095 which has lifter brackets built in. This is marketed towards ski and snowboards but can be used with fishing rods too. Either of these options will give you the clearance you need.

  • Recommended Solution for Carrying Surf Fishing Rods on SUV
    I have a solution for you, but to my knowledge there is not a rear cargo carrier of that size available that you could use. If the rods come apart into 2 or more pieces, you might be able to use a hitch mounted cargo carrier like the Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier - Tilting # TH665C. This carrier has 50-1/2" length of internal storage, so your rods would need to break down to less than that length in order for this to work. The best solution would be to add...

  • How to Determine Fit of Inno Fishing Rod Carrier IN56FR on 2021 Subaru Outback
    While I can tell you how to determine a fit, there isn't a vehicle-specific fit for the Inno Fishing Rod Carrier - Ceiling Mount - J-Hook Style - 7 Rods # IN56FR. To determine if the carrier will work in your 2021 Subaru Outback you'll need a couple things; one is that your Outback needs to have grab handles above the rear seats. And you'll need to measure the distance between the grab handles (where they attach to your Subaru) and that distance needs to be between 35-1/2" and 47" apart...

  • Best Roof Rack and Four Fishing Rod Holder for a 2019 Ford Ranger
    The roof rack I recommend for a 2019 Ford Ranger is the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System which consists of part # Y00425, part # Y00146, and part # Y06124. The Yakima JetStream Crossbar System is one of the best options on the market which has aero shaped crossbars which work to reduce wind noise/drag and rubber padded feet to protect the vehicle's finish.

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack RR576 and RR576F
    The Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier, # RR576 is marketed for 6 pairs of skis or 4 boards and is 27-9/16" Long. The Rhino-Rack Fishing Rod Carrier, # RR576F has the same dimensions but uses the F identifier at the end to associate with fishing. This is for naming convention to aligned with similar products on the website.

  • 8-Rod Fishing Pole Carrier for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top with Thule Roof Rack
    Surely! The 60" WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520 and Rapid Gutter Feet # TH93ZR for your 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top is an excellent choice and is compatible with pretty much every fishing rod holder designed for a roof rack. I recommend checking out the Yakima ReelDeal # Y04089 for a simple carrier or the Yakima TopWater # Y04088 if you need something that offers a little more protection. Both carriers have a locking feature but the TopWater is a whole box so you'd have to...
