The Smitty Rail Rest allows you to hang your rod and reel securely when you are kite fishing or standing at the rail.
Using the rail rest greatly reduces angler fatigue. Your hands are freed up as you dont have to support the weight of the rod and reel with your arms and hands.
When a fish strikes and if you have the reel in gear, you rod and reel could be easily pulled over board. Using the rail rest offers a level of security for your expensive rod and reel.
When chunking or fly lining a bait your hands can strip line since you arent holding the rod and reel.
