Looking for a rod tube
 
I am looking for a rod tube,,for 4pc , 9ft rods at least. MY BVK as you know, didn't come with one. I keep it in one of my travel cases now but need a tube about locking the rods in the safe. It doesn't have to be new...just in decent shape. I could care less what it says on the outside,,,I'll tag it anyways.
If ya have one reasonable, let me know , OK ?

Considering the cost to ship one, I think this is a pretty good deal since it includes free shipping.

You could make on yourself pretty easily. PVC pipe is cheap, a little foam on the inside covers. Might not be snappy looking but it would work.

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 :)

I made some pvc tubes for one-piece spinning rods, and they look awful. There are cordura and aluminum tubes that are available at very reasonable prices. LL Bean sells tubes, and they don't charge for shipping. ;)

Thanks for the link. I never thought of Sears before, I bought one.
