Hi, I managed to pick up a second hand reload on the weekend and I'm interested to see how you fellas setup your front rod holders and rear catch bags aswell as any other ideas and tricks you might like to suggest. My chilly bag is a propelz one and has stay puts to hold it down on the rear but nothing to hold it down at the front.

I find the front factory rod holders very useful. I have 2 railblazas on the very front of my chillpod and never use them really.
Also find the right hand hatch holds my drogue perfectly all wrapped up around float. I just pull the running rig and it deploys itself.
Left hand hatch i use for a big water bottle i freeze to drink.
I also find the pedals for rudder get a bit dry and hard to move after a bit of use and the hatches can b hard to open. A bit of crc 808 makes them a lot nicer to use.

I have a chill pod in rear that is great. They can fall out easy if u flip so i added some front latches.

Great kayaks and easy to use. Dnt need to add much untill u have been for a spin and see what you need where
