Safeguarding fly rods is essential for any angler, whether throwing them in the back of the truck for a quick trip after work or traveling to exotic fishing destinations around the world. Made using an aluminum extrusion process, the unique and proprietary design incorporates alternating convex and concave curves, which not only looks sophisticated but also adds new dimensions of strength. Its distinctive octagonal shape also keeps the tube stable on smooth surfaces. Other features include oversized, rubberized end caps which help prevent scratches and dents and a bottom cap with a custom ID area to write crucial contact information in case of loss. The quarter-turn tenon style cap clicks shut to form a tight seal to keep dust, water and grit out of the tube. Each of these features ensures that rods will be protected no matter the abuse. — sageflyfish.com
