Has anyone tried the "Strip'n aid"? It's advertised in the latest saltwater FF mag (on page 67) from Lake Fork Enterprises.
If it works it would solve the travel problem - I've tried collapsible baskets before and they generally do just that when you least expect it. This device is basically a flat pad fitted with a set of cones. Looks like it would work in calm conditions but how about getting whacked about in the surf?
