    Default Rod carrier

    Hi guys

    I think its about time i invested in a travel rod carrier to carry up to 6 rods . I dont think its cool anymore to cling film all my rod tubes together


    Can any of you guys reccomend one , and could you post a few links please if possible

    thanks

    I hear these are excellent


    OK, sorry.

    One way to save a lot of money is to get some big downpipe tubes the industrial plumbing guys use. You can get them with a locable screw end and glue in a stopping cap at the other end and even lock them. You'll have seen similar on the roofs of white vans. If you want some protection inside, easily done with some foam.

    Probably save you enough money to pay for a days fishing

    Hi Dee

    I have used a Sportube for about 10 years. Takes up to 6 rods or more and you can get your wading stick and waders etc in as well if not too many rods.

    Mine is the large size, butI can't find a current link, but its a bigger version of this:

    BA, United and Easyjet have been unable to break it !! It travels at same cost as golf clubs !!

    Happy travels !

    Been looking out for something myself, so would be interested to see any other suggestions, but I was looking at Sportube Carriers, my only concern is they might be a little too big. They carry up to 5 or 10 rods, ideally I'd like something that would take up to 3 rods.

    Hi
    The Sportubes are very good but can be quite heavy ,especially when you
    have weight limitations (Russia etc).
    The Sage rod tubes advertised by Sportfish are very good,light and strong .

    you might want to take a look here:

    but today, I do think that the solution is five pieces DH rods, no problems putting them in the bag and you avoid the outrageous "sports gear" overcharge!

    Agree with Cayofisher.

    Here is the link for the Flambeau Bazuka. Look at the last two cases.

    Even though they are plastic - they are not too heavy, but very durable.
