I have a new Freedom Hawk 12, and I might use 1 to 3 different types of paddles, and a stabilizer rod during the same trip. I use the accessory leash to secure the paddles until they are needed and of course when they are needed and after. I will be using the rod straps with my expensive Two Handed Fly rods next week. If I lose one of these rods/reel/line combos, I could buy another kayak with the lost cost.
I have five or six of these and use them predominantly for leashing rods to various locations on my kayak. I love the design of them but am troubled by one element. Mine, least, are not consistent when it comes to which end is male and which is female on the quick connects. This makes it irksome when trying to move a rod from one location on the kayak to another. I think this is just a quality control issue but wish they were all the same.
Nice product, have a 6 on my yak for rods and paddle. Very nice. I like the quick release, I am always swapping rods, makes it quick and easy to only change the rod end, leave the anchor point in place.
Designed for a job and does the job well. Great service from ACK
