Bass Pro Shops XTS Rod Socks
Spinning DO NOT FIT 2" Guides
Contrary to what the website and packaging states.....The Spinning Rod Socks DO NOT FIT over a 2" Guide. I bought these for all of my spinning rods and was very disappointed to find out that none of them will work. They simply WILL NOT FIT over the last guide (and barely the second to last) of a spinning rod with 2" guides. I love Bass Pro and all of their offerings. Unfortunately I cannot give this product anything other than One (1) Star as they DO NOT FIT as stated on the site and packaging.
Bass Pro BLEW IT BIG TIME with this item (spinning only)
I will be returning them all

These are sized correctly (baitcaster rods) and seem very good quality for the price.. I got the 6'6" and 7" lenghts (red and Black). Eexcellent protection for rods stacked together in boxes- easily retrieve whichever rod you want from a pile in a rod box. This is one of those products that once you get it you wonder why you didn't get them until now! I like the fact that they fit snuggly yet can be removed or replaced easily. Will get these for a few spinning rods. This review is for the baitcaster rod sock.

Will Not Fit All Large Spinning Rods
I was excited to buy this rod holder, but was quikcly disappointed.
Despite the packaging stating that these rod holders would fit spinning rods up to 8', that was not the case with my 7' Ugly Stik Tiger rod. The sleeve would not fit over the larger eyes.
Buyer beware, but appears Bass Pro is currently addressing this issue.

I purchased 14 rod socks for the level wilnd road the bottom of the sock would not go over the last quide and I order the 8 ft socks, also some of the guides up the rod came through the mesh. So returned and have receive credit for the charge I have now ordered and received 7 socks for spinning rods (8 foot) but as this time I have not had time to see how they work. Your years I have used the black protecters that have adjustible strap and work with either type of rod. When the rod storage on my Ranger 520z I need the sock or the ones I have to get the guides in the holes provided in the boat this way I can place up to 3 rods in each hole.
Sorry but i don't think these are as good.
