What Do You Guys Use To Ship A Rod?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys use to ship them. 1 piece 6-7 foot rods. I have a couple and can't find tubes long enough that don't cost 20 bucks.

Thanks

I use either cardboard rod tubes from ***, cabelas, bass pro, etc or I ship in pvc tubing(sp)?.

No matter how you ship, I would recommend purchasing insurance. I have had two heavy duty cardboard rod tubes broken ...with rod broken inside.

A 10 ft PVC tube cost me about 8 bucks. Just wrap the tip in bubble wrap or a lot of crumpled newspaper, some tape, and your good to go. Actually shipping via USPS cost me around 15$ for 8 foot tubing, less for 7

You can save a few bucks and some weight if you can find vacuum tubing or conduit instead of the schedule 40 pvc. Either way pvc is the way to go.

Foam pipe insulation works nicely for wrapping the rod. Cut a piece long enough to cover the rear grip, another to cover the reel seat, another to cover the tip and and extra piece or two to support the middle of the rod. You can buy enough to ship several rods for less than five bucks.

These can be tough to come by. I've gotten some from carpet shops and from Lowe's in the flooring section...Also, I've had luck with Dicks and a local tackle shop here...however, it's luck of the draw with these things. I've been keeping all of mine from TW and Bass Pro so I have a nice collection for now.

Good luck!
