Question Airline Carry-On Rod Carriers

I've got to the point of wanting to carry three (or more) rods with me as carry-on on my fly-fishing trips requiring airline travel. Does anyone have any suggestions for these?

Rather than carry three tubes, i know there are large diameter tubes available in the art industry for carrying of posters and such. I think you could probably fit three rods into one tube if they were just in their rod socks.

I have an excellent one, something like the one in Casey's link but with 5" squared off sides. It can carry up to four 9', 4 piece rods and was a closeout from Orvis so of course they don't make them anymore. I've never seen another quite like it.
They did replace it with a fancier, more expensive one however.

I got a Fishpond Overland tube that is capable of holding 5-4 piece rods and have never had a problem getting them on a plane. I also use this same tube anytime that I take multiple rods with me to a stream. Leave those tubes at home unless you're hiking in.

This looks a lot like the Fishpond Dakota (image below), which I believe Frank Whiton recommended some time ago (Frank, if you read this, please confirm).

Thanks! I think I could almost retire on the Battenkill luggage stashed around this house. Got into it years ago, when it was still made in USA.

I'd venture to say that this briefcase has well over a million miles on it between ground and air. The new ones they have made in Asia can't compare. (apologize for slight diversion from threadline)
