http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-..._rod_case.html One of these is what I am looking for. I am on the waiting list for them being on back order. But I won't wait to long I will take the advice of using the smallest diameter PVC that I can find cut to fit the rod perfectly and then padded end caps.

I want to be light my friend that lives in Burnsville N.C. has a triangle shaped plastic rod tube that I am going to get off him if I have to drive there for the weekend. I want to have something by spring so that my rod can fit neatly in my pack and I can move quickly on my feet well into the backcountry.

Using a piece of flyline and a stick? Now that would make a great picture! but it can be done I bet. **** I'd try it if I broke my rod or use a lot of duct tape.
