Rated 5 out of 5 by BLIST Have Rods Will Travel The Bazuka Pro Rod Case is built to last, this thing is a tank. I am able to travel with an arsenal of rods at lengths of 8'. This tube can hold around 9-10 bass rods comfortably without fear of tweaking a guide. June 5, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike360 Huge and great for land travel. Strengths: 1) Huge. It extends from the floor to my roof, which is pretty darn tall. 2) I stuffed 10 rods in there (9 bait rods and a fly rod) Some were 2-pieced, but most were 1-peace rods. They all fit fine. 3) the tube in general is very sturdy and rigid, with 2 foam pads at each end to counter damage at the tips. 4) bungee/ tie-down holes make it very easy to secure this unit to a car rack / truck bed, etc. 5) the top cap extends to the side so you can get a side view ( in depth view ) at the top of your rods. Weaknesses: 1) the entrance side cap design doesn't seem very sturdy. The rest of the tube seems indestructible, but a good kick or bash to the side side cap could send it flying. I appreciate what they tried to accomplish with it, but I wouldn't trust it on an air plane. 2) The lock pin is garbage. Worst detent design ever. It will fall out if you don't tape it. Summary: Recommended for ground travel only. Can be used in an airline, but I'd duck tape the top cap and get a better locking pin before you leave it in the hands of someone else. I think I could probably stuff 12 rods in this thing so it's getting a 4 star rating ;D March 21, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by WIGLH Very Disappointed I purchased the Bazuka Rod case last year, used it on a fishing trip, and was very satisfied. This year however, before the case was even loaded on to plane, the top was broken completely off. The Flambeau web site describes the case as "virtually indestructible - won't bend, crush, or break" Obviously this was not the case. I sent a letter to Flambeau and got the reponse that the case has a one-year warranty and airline damage is not covered. The cover section is very heavy, it is possible that the wall thickness of the case is not thick enough to take the shock if the cover is struck. It is also possible that I just had a defective case. Regardless, if you plan to ship your rods as baggage, I would recommend an alternative to the Bazuka Pro. August 3, 2010

A:It can but you are limited to the quantity of rod and reels you can carry. I would recommend throwing your reels in a separate bag.
A:It can, but the amount of rods you can fit in it significantly decrease. At best, you could fit bait/spin cast reels. I highly doubt you can fit spinning reels in it. I'd recommend a reel tote. Most people do this when transporting long-distance.
A:It will be hard to put it in and get it out you have to do it with care only with rods or you can damage the guides
A:Question asked months ago but I thought I'd answer because I was at BPS today and looked at these cases. To answer the question, No, it does not hold reels. It is for rods only. Given the size it is probably is capable of holding 1 rod with reel or possibly 2 but I doubt it. It is suggested to get a reel case which retail for approximately $25.00 on this site.
