These rod cases have worked perfectly for me. I have ruined many rods and reels when they bounce around the back of my pickup. I can place both my 7' rods with reels attached and line run thru the guides and a swivel on the end. It only takes a few seconds to pull out, and get a lure on. No worries about your line being rubbed and compromised. Keeps the dust out of my reel and protects the rod tips and guides. I recommend these cases to all my friends.
