Flambeau Standard Telescoping Rod Case
Good Protection....After Alteration
This is basically a telescoping set of plastic sleeves. The problem lies in that the middle "clamp" ring doesn't clamp down enough to keep the sleeves in place. This is because as you turn the ring the threads will cross and loosen by themselves. The fix? Since I have a few one piece rods, I set the case length to be just longer than my longest rod. Then using black duct or electrical tape I bolstered the inner sleeve just above the ring so the sleeve won't collapse down and break off my tips. About a $2 fix, works great now.....
