Swiftcast is designed to protect a single rod. While you may be able to load a second rod, it is likely it one will be damaged as the reel box is designed to only secure one reel. We strongly recommend not carrying two rods in a single Swiftcast. You can, however, mount multiple Swiftcasts onto your raft.
