I'd be interested in any pictures and descriptions of methods used to secure rods in flush-mount holders. On my MantaRay 11 I put a ring eyelet onto each of the flush mounts and put hooks on either end of a piece of bungee cord. To secure the rods I ran the single bungee across both reel stems, hooked on the the ring on either end. I suppose it worked OK, but it was awkward to attach and release each time, especially with the amount of tension I had in the bungee. I would like something easier on my new (as yet unused) Coosa.
Ideally each holder would have a locking mechanism where with one hand you lock/unlock the rod. I'm leaning toward one small bungee for each holder, but I wonder if there's something easier out there. Wouldn't it be nice to just flip a lever of some kind to l lock/unlock?
