Video Transcript for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer Fishing Rod Storage Tube Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer, part number MPG541. Don't forget to bring along your favorite fishing rods on your trip. This will allow you to have six saltwater extra long fishing rods, but will also accommodate many other sized rods. This lockable tube attaches to your second tier load-bar add-on for your Malone MegaSport Trailer. The tube is expandable to accommodate rods up to eight and a half feet in length. Once you've extended it appropriately for your rods, simply slide the pin in to lock it into place.There's 11 points of adjustability along the tube.

After you close it up, it can be locked with a padlock, such as the one found on part number 131D. Everything you need to install it is included. You simply attach the U-bolts and slide it into place and snug it down. The tube also doubles as a carrying case. Easy-grip handle, just walk right on down to the dock..

Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer - MPG541

Average Customer Rating:  3.0 out of 5 stars   (2 Customer Reviews)


The tube itself is of good quality for the price but the hardware to mount it on my Malone megasport kayak trailer does not work well on the 2nd tier portion of it. It shifts going down the road unless you over tighten it which then leads to the storage tube being crushed and for that reason I give it one star.

I reached out to Malone about the issues that you were having with the storage tube. They wanted to see if you could send a picture of the tube installed on your MegaSport 2nd Tier?



I don’t have it currently setup but can get to it this weekend. The round brackets that came with it and the angled metal pieces that sat on it would slide going down the road side to side unless overly tightened down which then dig into the tube itself

  • Will Malone Fishing Rod Storage Tube Fit Yakima Roof Rack
    Yes, the Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG541 will fit Yakima crossbars. The mounting hardware that comes with the storage tube uses the Malone Jawz2 adapter which fits round, square, and factory crossbars up to 4" wide.

  • If Heat is Bad for Fishing Rods What Advantage Does Malone Fishing Rod Storage Tube Have
    A fully enclosed fishing rod carrier like the part # MPG541 has the advantage of completely protecting everything from the elements but if the weather is super hot it would be smart to not leave it in the carrier when parked where the heat would build up.

  • How Many Rods/Reels Fit Inside the Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer
    The Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer part # MPG541 has an inside diameter of 6" so you can fit a couple rods/reels no problem but the exact number will vary as not all rods/reels are the same especially their dimensions and style such as fly rod/reel, bait caster, open bail etc. That said, I don't think you can fit six standard rod/reel combos inside so you might want to look into obtaining two tubes.

  • Recommended Trailer For a 18' Tandem Kayak
    I'm going to give you 2 recommendations for you to consider. First the Malone Ultimate Angler MegaSport Trailer # MPG550-AH. With this you will be able to haul 2 kayaks or canoes up to 20' long. This is more of the ultimate kayak trailer that will give you storage for your fishing gear in the tubes. And you also have cargo box and basket below the kayak for storing your gear. If you are wanting more basic the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G can mount a Bunk Kit # MPG561 that will...

  • Differences between the MAL25FR and the MPG46B2
    The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer # MAL25FR and Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG461B2 are very similar as they are both built on the same platform. This allows them to both carry the same weight and size kayaks. The # MPG461B2 has a 30" height to the crossbar. The extra height allows for the spare tire to be moved back farther on the trailer to reduce tongue weight. You can also store additional gear below the crossbars such as your paddles and fishing poles. You can use the Fishing...

  • Is The Malone Fishing Rod Tube Compatible With The 2nd Tier Micro Sport Trailers
    Yes the Fishing Rod Storage Tube for Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer Item # MPG541 is compatible with the 2nd Tier Micro Sport. I have included this Item # MAL62FR as a reference that shows the rod holder mounted. I also recommend the Master Lock Covered, Solid Body Padlock - 3/16" Diameter Shackle Item # 131D to lock the hinged door on the case.

  • Solution For Safely Transporting Fishing Rods On A Malone Kayak Trailer
    The Fishing Rod Storage Tube # MPG541 is designed to be used with Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535. This MegaSport trailer has crossbars that are 86" long and has 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" square tubing. The Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer # MAL53FR also has the same 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" square tubing that will allow the Fishing Rod Storage Tube to be mounted onto it. Just keep in mind that the EcoLight trailer has shorter 58" crossbars which means the storage tube will have more overhang compared...

  • Replacement Bearing and Seal Kit with Grease for a Malone MicroSport Trailer
    No, it is not normal for seals to go bad that quickly. Typically if your hubs are spraying/leaking grease, it is because of a bad seal. From what I could find, it looks like your Malone Microsport trailer has a 1.98 inch diameter hub. The correct replacement seal would be the Double Lip Grease Seal # 34823. I would recommend replacing the bearings and seals on both sides using the Bearing Kit # BK1-100. To grease the wheels you can use LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390...
