    Lost my favorite rod and reel yesterday. So here I am trying to protect my new rod.

    Uhhh, zip ties work too… Just make a small ring on the skinny part of the pole (where the paracord is at in the video) using zip ties with the carabiner attached. Lock the zip tie loose enough to slide up and down the rod section so it won't bother you.

    Some cool ideas but your preferred method may may have issues if you need to put your rod in a rod holder.

    Not sure I would want to attach an eyelet to the bottom of the rod.  Kinda tends to ruin the rod….I'd go with the paracord idea first.

    Hi KayakDIY, In South Africa on our kayaks we create a small loop from dacron, braid, dyneema which we then put between the reel seat and the winch and then tighten up the winch. i.e. you now have a small loop of dacron sticking out from under the reel seat. 

    We then create a 50cm length of stretch cord or similar with 2 carabiners on each end. 1 clips onto the kayak at an eyelet and the other to your dacron loop.

    This method is used as we fish offshore in the ocean and this a quick method to keep your rods attached to your kayak should you roll at sea or have the fish pull the rod out of your hands.

    Hope it makes sense.

    Here's an idea. Get a tripod and stop waving the camera all over the place.
