When traveling with our fly rods and reels, it's hard to get away from the constant anxiety that something will happen to them. Good rod carriers can offer some much-needed peace of mind. A new line of rod-and-reel combo cases from Abel will help push visions of that Samsonite gorilla right out of your mind.
Abel's new combo carriers are made of the same high-density PVC material used in Abel rod carriers and feature a durable Cordura cover. A soft, padded interior ensures the safekeeping of reels and rods, while a nylon-webbed carrying handle makes for easy transportation.
The Abel rod-and-reel carriers come in both single- and double-rod styles for two-, three- and four-piece rods. They are available in gunmetal gray with black trim, forest green with black trim, navy blue with desert-khaki trim, and international orange with black trim. Price depends on size and number of rods and ranges from $78 for the single three-piece rod carrier to $137 for the double two-piece rod carrier.
