I currently have a rod rack that holds 16 rods in a oval shape, up until today its been just fine. Today I got reels for all the baitcasters I have been picking up, and now all the reels hit each other and forces me to space the rods out more... but that wont work as I have too many rods.

So does anyone have a recommendation for a rack that can fit around 16-20 rods (or 2 racks that hold 10 each) that have enough spacing to allow me to keep the reels on the rods? This is mostly just a issue with my baitcasters as they all have a similar handle length, the spinning rods fit just fine with a little turning of the rod.

I made my own rod rack. Hangs on my garage wall. Holds around 40 rods. It's 10' long and is about 10' off the floor. Just get a couple 1"×6" ×10' boards. Make a shelf. And get some screw hooks put about 3" apart or 4".full length of shelf. Hang it on the wall and rods will hang on hooks out of the way.

Made these out of 1x4 pine. Very simple yet functional, all you need is a hand held jig saw

I'm not sure what it is, I found it up in North Dakota while walking thru some cattails pheasant hunting. Lol. It's nice but not near as big as some I seen up there. This ones 57" wide...

OK, then it’s an eastern moose, still very impressive. You being from Wyoming I thought it must have been a Shiras.

I have 4 racks that have slots for, and are SUPPOSED to hold, 16 rods. Not a single one has more than 8-10, especially the larger surf/spinning combos. Only way any would hold the full 16 rods, would be without reels, on any of them... not my way to store.
Kinda like a lot of things that include the words "accommodates up to...." , marketing.

Try putting 64 guns in a gun safe that claims it will hold 64🤔🙄

Can you raise some of the butts up a bit so the reels don't all line up?

SO much easier to just make your own. I mainly do saltwater fishing & could never find a rod rack that would work. Here’s a picture of one I made & have made a few more since. This one is a little nicer since it’s inside & not in the garage where some of the others are. This is also not completely full since I was fishing that day & they were outside drying off after I washed them.

Try alternating and reverse the rods. Cut notches to fit either end

Some rods like Bamboo and Glass will take a set if stored horizontally or leaning against a wall where they are bent. I would suggest adequate support for those when stored horizontally.
