How do you guys store your bent butt stand-up rods? All my straight 30's and 50's are in heavy duty rod racks I made and screwed to the garage ceiling. My bent butt 70's are in the rec room and my Lab has taken a liking to the handles.

Buy yourself some brass eyelets from home depo.....and screw them into the wood overhead.......measure the reel lugs...and put the eyes on each side of each lug......then run a 5 '' gav bolt through the reel lugs.....easy....if you don't want to use bolts you can use heavy zip ties

Thanks for the ideas. I think I'm going to mount some eyelets for each reel and run a piece of dowel rod through the reel lugs and eyelets then wrap a #64 rubbner band around each end of the rod so it doesn't pull out.

Eye bolt

I use the eye bolt method but instead of wood dowel
I use a clip from the rod to eye hook

That works too. I was thinking of the dowel because I have some pieces laying around..
