Rain is not an issue unless it is accompanied with wind. That combo makes it miserable.

Or lightening. Those carbon rods turn into great lightening rods when they are wet and vertical in the holders. They are the highest point around and highly conductive

x2, When a front is coming instinct is to reel in and batten down. Battening down is always a good safety measure, but leave a line out. Have had some surprising strikes during downpours. If there is a lot of static in the air, the fishing rods will buzz when stored vertically. It's eerie, lower the rods, and the sound stops. If you find yourself in that situation, it's time to stow the rods horizontally and get out of the area to avoid the risk of a lightning strike.
