contrary to your stand up recommendation fishing I have my own boat and usually sit down when I fish. I sit on the bar and rest the pole on the boat rail and it works great for me
The Stand Up Fishing "T-Bar Rod Cushion is the ultimate combination of a rod cushion and a traditional fighting belt. Engineered to leverage the fight, the T-shaped design distributes the pressure exerted from your rod butt, stopping the rod from digging into your body. With comfortable foam padding, there will be no more bruises! Like any standard fighting belt, the "T-Bar Rod Cushion" has a pin to lock into the gimbal of your rod. The angler has the option to place the rod on either leg or lower belly during the fight. Unlike traditional foam cushions, the "T-Bar Rod Cushion" is constructed with strong, lightweight aluminum that is built to handle billfish, tuna, mahi, grouper, tarpon and everything else in between. Bulky fighting belts are now a thing of the past! Go Stand Up & Fish!
