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!

- Y04089

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.

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!

- Y04089

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.

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.

- Y04089

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

- Y04089

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

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Fishing Rod Holders

  • 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!

  • Yakima ReelDeal Dimension Fit
    Glad you like the Yakima ReelDeal Rooftop Fishing Rod Carrier # Y04089.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Fairing to Help with Wind Noise of Yakima ReelDeal Rod Carrier
    A fairing will help direct air over the Yakima carrier # Y04089 that you referenced. To pick out a fairing you need to measure the distance between the feet of the roof rack and go with one that fits the best between them. Below are the available sizes we offer that are for Thule bars and can fit other crossbars: # TH62WV for a 32 inch fairing, # TH82WV for a 44 inch fairing, # TH22WV for a 52 inch fairing.

  • 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.

  • Best Roof Rack and Four Fishing Rod Holder for a 2019 Ford Ranger

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.
