Rated 4 out of 5 by BigMel Best Purchase Easy to use and protect your rod in the boat and on the rack at home. On the boat as you travel, you don't need to worry about them coming off in the wind. May 14, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jigger WHAT? Product made of the wrong material...this is loosly woven fishing line...when you try to put them on the rod, the guides go thru the mesh and tangel, and are a real b---- to untangle. Good idea, bad engineering...just think, a backlash BEFORE you even cast your lure..........before you even get into the boat.....before you even get into your truck to go fishing......returing the product. I'll make my own using my trusty RONCO hand sewing machine.....I still love BPS though. May 1, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by pucknut not happy Bought 2 of the yellow models to fit spinning rods was really happy so I ordered 2 more. That was a mistake as the next two I got (the same yellow spinning model) doesn't fit at all as if it is for a bait caster way to narrow and about a foot to long. April 22, 2013

Details:I have the models that fit up to a 7'6" long casting rod. They are too long for anything smaller. How do I trim these?
A:length was not an issuew for me. If you should attempt to shorten them I would recommend using a small fine pointed type of scissors and open the four small stitches that hold the folded hem at the large end, or bottom.. Cut to size and then make a new hem and dab small amounts of super glue on the new hem.
A:Feel your pain, I have cut to size, then roll the bottom up a couple of inches to the outside and tie off with fishing line on 4 sides. May want to take match and heat ends to fuse them, which will keep them from tring to split open. Do this before you tie off.
Details:Wouldn't it be easier to say the exact lengths so we can measure the from the reel to the tip?
A:They streach well over the rod. As long as you get them in the correct size, and if your rod is on the lower size, you just have a little bit of a tail at the end of the rod.
A:Seems like a good idea to me but you are still going to have to have an average set length
A:Each sock is designed to fit a specific range in size and will show you the min-max on the order form for each one offered.
A:I have ,only, been able to find rod socks
that fit up to an eight ft. rod. If you try it on a longer one piece rod, you're taking
a bit of a gamble. Ideally, the sock should fit down to the handle. I'd like to see a nine or ten ft. rod sock.
A:they seem to fit all up tp to 7.6" large guide closest to the reel can be a issue on spinning rods,level winds no problem
A:They come in different lengths. I just bought one in store for my 7'10 casting rod, it covers the entire rod right down to the handle
