EZ Keepers: Putting your money where your mouth is :)

EZ Keepers: Putting your money where your mouth is :)

Some people like EZ keepers, some dont.
Some people have rods that are too big to fit EZ Keepers.

Some people like EZ Keepers AND have rods too big to fit them :)

I know it doesnt look great, first time I've ever done any "rod building".
But its all function over form.

thinking i may do this to all of my rods. glad i bought enough :)
much lower profile, no risk of knocking one off into the river, no risk of line coming off as wrapped because a keeper flops down unexpectedly.

for anyone wondering and wanting to do this, search for "Drop shot hook keeper"
I think i got mine for ~50cents each.

Now just put a groove in the butt cap to make real simple.

Great minds think alike http://uk-tenkara.proboards.com/thread/414/line-holders I couldn't get on with ezkeepers I don't understand why tenkara rods don't have line keeper built into them. I think there's some good ideas here for the rod designers. I like the groove in the butt cap.
