Wow looks like it works really well, I love how many uses PVC can turn out to have!

Just uploaded my newest PVC build :) I like PVC too :)

It does work wonderfully and the bend on top helps keep the fishing pole from snaging or scratching the grips. The slit in the top keeps the reel from moving around while in use :) Thanks for the comment!
