What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

We all know that fishing is fun, however we also know how frustrating and time consuming it gets when its time to load your rods in a vehicle. Fishing poles are too long, lines are tangling and hooks are constantly looking for a soft seat or your arm to snag into. This often causes damage to your fishing equipment, the vehicle and sometimes yourself!

That is the reason why we decided to develop a functional high quality product that will help anglers with the rod transportation task. We want anglers to spend more time fishing and less time packing and loading. 

Our product provides a convenient, safe and secure way to transport your fishing equipment to your next fishing destination.  Easy to use, durable and weather resistant, it was engineered to withstand harsh conditions of your adventure and make transportation of fishing rods a hassle-free task.

The Rod Transportation system is equipped with the molded locking mechanism for enhanced security and peace of mind.

The system is capable of carrying 4 Rods and can be installed on right or left side of the vehicle. Capacity can be increased to 8 rods by adding another rack to the opposite side. 

The product is incredibly strong and rigid, rust proof and UV Stable as we are utilizing the best materials available on the market.

Risks and challenges

We at GearRAK have many years of manufacturing experience in the fishing industry. Our team consists of manufacturing experts, injection mold specialists, industrial designers and product engineers.
We already went through R&D, the prototyping, testing and we also already developed the tools (Injection molds). We are ready to go in to production but need your backing to help us source raw materials.
