Fuji EZ Keeper
A very nice product
An overall good idea well implemented.
Simple to attach, anywhere on the rod, you don't have to pull it over eyes or the rod handle, multiple size "O" rings for different diameter rods. Easy to replace (when worn or broken) rubber O ring keeps it from slipping around or up and down the rod, position the hook eye on top, either side or the bottom, where every you want, and it can flip back out of the way when not in use if needed. It holds the hook really well sense it has some give but the hole is in hard plastic so its easy to hook and remove and you don't have to worry nicking it with the barb.
Bottom line, I like em.

I purchased one of these for a BPS Extreme rod, and I like this product. it attaches easily, and if the O-ring breaks you can easily get one at a local hardware store.

Almost an excellent solution
I wanted to try a few of these to put on some of my rods that do not have hook holders. It is a novel solution for this purpose. However, most of my rods are in the medium to medium heavy saltwater catagory and the rods are too large in diameter to easily accomodate the EZ Keeper with the "O" rings that are supplied. I quickly realized it had to mount further up the shaft of the medium heavy rods than you would normally want to place it. The "O" rings that are supplied are very small in diameter. I don't know what rod the smallest "O" ring would work with or how anyone with normal size fingers could be expected to handle the installation of it (useless in my opinion). Long story short, I bought some larger diameter "O" rings to work with my rods. Now we'll see how long the EZ Keepers hold up to the elements.

A Must for BPS rods
I find this accessory a must when purchasing a BPS branded rod as they do not come with their own hook keepers. The nice thing about these is that they can be folded down and can hold a Texas rigged plastic without exposing the hook. The package comes with several different size rubber O rings to accommodate various rod diameters. They can also be moved around to different rods in the future. The only downside being that they tend to slip on the rod when wet. However they do their intended job well and compliment whatever rod they are on nicely.
