Bass Pro Shops Round Floor Rod Rack
This rod rack was really easy to put together however the top guides are way too tight for most rods. The top and bottom holes do not match up so half of your rods stand up straight and the other half are twisted at an angle.

Nice Item to have
Bought this today for a Father days gift to myself, went together really easy. Base is a little light in weight so added a "SAD" Iron Antique to the base, making it very sturdy. Placed all 10 rod/reel combos in it without problems, and love seeing them all together nice and neat. Will add a lazy susan to the base so it will rotate, and I can get to the rods in the back. I couldn't build a rack like this for the price, got it online for $19.97 can't beat the price, may add a wooden bowl to the top post so it can hold odds and ends in the middle and hang lures off the bowl edge...Rubber holders are kind of stiff but do the job for holding the rods.

It didn't happen overnight - but somehow we managed to accumulate nine or ten rods and reels over the course of five years. Not a pretty sight when it comes to unpacking the camper and having them all leaning again a ladder and each other in the garage (my beloved partner in life insists on taking no less than five rigs for herself for a week of fishing!). Now, thanks to a Bass Pro Shops Father's Day gift card we can actually see which rod we are looking for and feel at least somewhat organized for the next excursion. This is a great, inexpensive way to keep your gear separated and safe. Now, if I could just figure out how to unravel the mess in the tackle box!!

stiff plastic clamps/eyelets
Decent rod holder. Certainly was a good price.
The plastic eyelets/clamps that hold the rod near the top of the stand are pretty stiff though. I have to use pliers to open them up enough to get my rods in without having to really push on the rod.
Might be because I keep it in the garage where it is cooler. Not sure. Maybe they'll loosen up over time.
