Cushions the blow
May 19, 2020
Pretty good cushion. I probably should've bought the smaller one, this model lacks the rigidness and will bending on its side.
ProsDoes provide cushion Slips on too the rod butt easily
ConsNot rigid enough, theres a lot of flex. When one has a fish on, the cushion will bend where the side wall will be protecting and not the butt itself.

So difficult to pick the right size.
May 2, 2020
Very difficult to pick the right size. "Luna Sea" has assured me they will work on this. "Inshore", is the better bet for most UK use. The "All Species" is massive. Think 50 to 80lb class work. I've got far too many. Last batch of "Inshore" including a "Leader Mate" came direct from "Luna Sea" themselves. The "Inshore" fits an AFTCO #1. Fit without washing up liquid or it will never hold on the taper. Really compliments "acid rung" rods that do not need a gimbal plate to stop twist. Covers most of my lighter gear. Thus, the big "Smitty's" gimbal plate can generally be left at home. Ideal, for those on Cardiac meds, like myself, who bruise very easily. Job sorted. Rgds. Malcolm Hayward.
ProsIf you manage to get the right size. Super light. Minimises bruising. Wonderful for those of us on Cardiac meds. Use with acid "rung rods" and leave the big plate at home. Visible colours. Does not slip on deck. Helps balance. Floats dropped gear "claim". Both "Tackle Direct" and "Luna Sea" themselves stock the range.
ConsGetting the right size, mail order. Won't fit through your "Scotty" rod holder. Means a dance that I hate but worth it. Much prefer to fit my "Cush-it" on hard like a big gimbal cover. Never want to be chasing your "Cush-it" around the scuppers. Not cheap. No supplier in UK.

Works well when catching large sturgeon on light gear. Makes the long fight easier on your body.

good substitute for a belt
June 4, 2019
Given the scenario, this is a good substitute for a belt. It relieves that pain and bruising against the body. Not an overall substitute for a belt but a good choice for those that like their skin.

No more raw hips/groan
May 17, 2019
Got these today, 2 each, need more and although I have not fished with them yet, they are on my two deep sea boat rods and WOW, I know there will be no more raw hips, groan, or lower belly. What a tremendous idea. A little pricey but hey someone has to make their million and I hope they do!! Should have found these like, thirty years ago. Thanks, Jerry

Quicker and Easier than a Belt for Standup Fishing
January 20, 2019
Looking forward to using these for stripers this spring and tuna this summer. Fit my rods perfectly. Just the right size, and seems easier than strapping on a belt.

If on any particular day you do not want to wear your belt and harness but want to protect sensitive or OTHER parts of your body fighting a big fish, this is your answer.

Works well!
June 16, 2018
Great product! Works well. Reduces stress from the rod butt digging into your gut. I bought two sizes, the Big Game and All Species. The Big Game is really large. I prefer the All Species as it is just a little more manageable. However both worked well.

Great for popping
November 7, 2017
works well to help protect your delicate parts. Used mostly for popping rod work and floats if it falls off the rod.

good product but sizing needs help
December 26, 2016
purchase 2 of the offshore ones to use with my off shore rods nut they seemed very big even for thier intended use of offshore. they seem was to wide around rod but and were way to loose. returning for the smaller size. once i get the right size, i assume they will perform as expected.

After 2 years of heavy use, they still look and function like new. Why not be comfortable and enjoy reeling in large fish. These are very good quality and hold up. I will be adding more to my boat.

All Species but not all sizes
May 27, 2015
Seems to do the job well on a small spinning rod. I ordered this hoping it would fit my Shimano Tallus rod but no luck. I'd say order the next size up but that covers a large size difference.
ProsWell made and fits the wife's smaller jigging rod. Takes a good bit of bruising and soreness from butterfly jigging all day.
ConsNeeds a better "size" chart

I purchased this as an alternative to a belt when I need something quick. It payed for itself when we hooked an inexpected Amberjack. Slipped on qiuck and protected me from the metal gimbal butt on the rod.
ProsQuick and Comfortable
ConsThe big game version is too large.

Luna Sea All Species Cush-It
July 16, 2012
Great product. Tested off shore for GT and YFT jigging and popping. Tested from the shore GT popping. Actually, I prefer In shore model with jigging and popping rod without tubber gimbal cap. Inshore is smaller, has less shock absorption than All Species model; but I prefer the smaller one for control and "better in place" matter.
ProsPrice Reliable Comfort Floating

Luna Sea Inshore Cush-It
July 16, 2012
Great product. Used with jigging and popping rod (without rubber gimbal cap). Several average 30 to 40 Kg GTs and small 15 to 25 kg YFT landed. No belt needed. Cheap, reliable and very easy to use. Actuelly, I prefer Inshore model than All Species model.
ProsGood Price Reliable Easy to use Floating Efficiency
