You know a lot of anglers want to protect their fishing rod from damage and also they want to have freedom to move around to cast to different areas. This is especially true if you are fishing at a pier, wall or rocky outcrop.  Some use a tripod but they can be cumbersome and restrict your mobility like being stuck in the mud, and if it's windy they are prone to tipping over.  Even worse some anglers rest their rod directly onto a concrete or metal railing, like balancing your rod on a knife edge, which over time can lead...

I went to the most uncomfortable mark I could think of, a mark all rock with none high enough to rest my rod. At marks like this I place the Rodfendr below my reel and use the sharp crevices (What an unthinkable thing to do to ur rod huh) to stand my rod in, before the Rodfendr I was destroying the handle taking off chips of paint but thanks to mister Alan O'Shea I can keep my babies pretty 😀 at this mark there's a heavy push of water when the flood starts, with a few lug and a 6oz weight the force of the flood had a heft bed on my rod grinding the Rodfendr into the sharp rock, finished this session with a dogfish and a couple of founder, no tripod needed!
