Ergonomic Cushion for a Fishing Rod
An ergonomic cushion is adapted to be releasably attached to a proximal end of a fishing rod. The cushion has a top and a bottom that are integrally formed with one another. The top is wider than the bottom so that the cushion fits under an arm without cutting off circulation. A bore formed in the bottom snugly receives the proximal end. In a second embodiment, the cushion is solid and an elastic band tightly ensleeves the cushion and the proximal end of the rod so that all of the cushion is between the proximal end and the under arm area of the user. The butt end of the rod may be placed into a rod holder without removal of the cushion.
2. An ergonomic cushion adapted to be releasably attached to a proximal end of a fishing rod, comprising:
said cushion having a top and a bottom that are integrally formed with one another; said top having a width greater than a width of said bottom; said cushion having a height substantially equal to a combined width of said top and bottom; said top and bottom having a solid construction; an elastic band adapted to tightly ensleeve said cushion and said proximal end of said fishing rod, said elastic band having a length substantially equal to said height of said cushion; all of said cushion being adapted to be positioned between an underarm of a user and said proximal end of said fishing rod; said bottom of said cushion conforming to a contour of said fishing rod; whereby said cushion is attached to the proximal end of a fishing rod, by pulling the elastic band outwardly away from the cushion and by pushing the proximal end of the rod into an opening created by said outward pulling, said opening being between said elastic band and said bottom of said cushion; whereby a tight fit is achieved between the elastic band around the proximal end of the fishing rod, thereby tightly securing the cushion to said proximal end.
