I'm looking to buy a rod case that can hold a 13ft two piece float rod. I am having trouble finding one. I would prefer a single rod case. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

I have a 11' 6 "' 2 pc noodle rod that I store in PVC, DWV pipe with female threads on both ends with threaded plugs. Got it all at D.I.Y. A metal handle can be installed and/or a carrying strap. Paint it if you want it to look fancy.

Yeah, Night 20 is right...i just discovered them while xmas shopping. Dicks carries them, thats where I saw em. i have GOT to get me some of them!Its diameter is big enough so that it 'might' be able to fit two rods if you position them correctly.
If I remember correctly, they were retailing for 35 bucks, and also have a tube lid that allows a padlock to go thru. thats great! Lock the tube shut, and then run a bike cable w. a second lock connected somewhere to the car; and you should be able to fish tippy and only get your liquour taken.

I'll second the Plano case. I have one that has been to Alaska and back with me twice now with no problems. I believe the last time I went I managed to fit four rods in it. All fly rods so they didn't have big guides like a spinning rod, but it worked. Bullet proof case.

call up Clear Creek components. They do any size and length you want. For a 13' float rod you'll need a 82" case in 3-4" diameter. You can do either a standard lined round tube or get the spinning/spey rod case so you can leave the reel attached. I think it will run you about $50 for that size.

i am presently using a flambeau bazooka but if you wand a single rod case try using 2in. pvc pipe strong and cheap. aside from that try a local supplier of ali tube and then use a slightly larger tube to fabricate some cap end for it. i recently did that for one of my floats rods but it worked out to be quite expensive in the end. pvc is still the best bet.
