Default Re: Looking for a rod tube

Here you go....didn't expect SEARS carried the TFO Triangular tubes but the following link says they do...

Temple Fork Outfitters Temple Fork Outfitters Triangle Rod Cases TF RCT 9/4 (9' 0"/4 pc. rods) - Fitness & Sports - Fishing - Fishing Accessories

If you want to build one your self, get Acrylic tubing from US plastics and cut one to your dimensions. They also sell end caps that fit perfectly. I build several of these for use when I go on backcountry camping / fishing trips. The end result is a very strong clear tube which weights very less. Its amazing how heavy the OEM rod tubes can be. If I recall, my net cost was ~ $5 or less. I threw on some nice stickers (Lamson, SAGE, TU etc) to add some bling
