Simply transporting your fly rod from home to fishing hole can be a world-class hassle. For one thing, how many of us have enough room in our cars to safely store a 9-foot-long toothpick? Chances are those who do have broken the tip off the rod or snagged the hook or line on something trying to remove the rod. Until now the only safe choice has been to spend time rigging your rods after you get to the water. But Highland Trading Co. offers another safe alternative, the Sportube Master Series.
The Master Series is a four-piece, 9-foot-long hard rod case that can be strapped right to the luggage rack of your car so rods can be stored fully assembled and ready to go. Designed from high-density polyethylene, the lightweight and durable Master Series allows storage of two fully assembled and rigged fly rods with reels. The case itself breaks down into three 32-inch pieces and one 18-inch piece for easier storage, travel or shipping. When fully assembled the standard case allows storage of rods up to 9 feet 2 inches, but it can easily be modified to hold rods up to 12 feet.
One other feature of the Master Series is the Security Bar System, which keeps the rod case from getting pulled apart. It features a lockable door, and there’s an additional roof-mounting kit that lets you lock the case to your roof racks.
