floatnfish, I'm curious why square? I'm thinking because they won't roll around. Correct? Any other reason? a note: I think its important to limit the amount of space in a tube so the rod won't move around much or at all inside the tube. I think I fractured a rod that I had in a tube by it getting tossed around inside the tube. So I'm trying to think of what I can do to limit that. Any ideas?
yes cully, so it won't roll around. I have a shorter Abel square PVC case that I got on the cheap, and its great, but too short for spey rods. Those things are way too expensive new, so square PVC seems like the ticket. I always pack my rods into their socks first, then into the case. Did your problem occur with rods loose, or in the bag?
floatnfish, I think my rod bread ( or fracture, then broke while casting) was due to to much free space in the rod tube. The rod would clang back and forth and up and down. Just to much free roaming. Any ideas on creating a rod sock? I now have a foot stocking both on the bottom and top of tube so the rod can't move up or down without padding but it would be nice to have something like a full rod sock. I've never seen a full rod sock at Gijoes,Sportsmans etc.
