    I am going to make two or three of these, It looks like they will work perfectly. I'll try to get you some pictures when there done. Thanks

    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!
