Plano Airliner Telescoping Rod Case 3.4 5 21 21
Plano Airliner I recently purchased the Airliner and am not impressed with the product's design. The internal foam padding at both ends tend to flop around and do not protect the rod ends from banging back and forth from end to end. I also do not like the idea of the tiers sliding together the way they do. It seems rod eyes can be easily bent or possibly even broken if caution is not used....I do not have confidence in airline security placing the rod tube back together carefully! But, the Airliner was used during a recent flight and my rods did make it in one piece.....for that, I am happy.... March 16, 2006
meatballs You need to take a few steps to protect your rods in any case. wrap the rods with a cloth or something similar to protect the guides. if the the rods bang around inside the case then you have'nt put enough cushion. the clips that come with the case are ok, but if your flying ,get two TSA aproved locks instead. I use cable locks because they go thru the holes easier. The other thing I do is put a nut and bolt in one of the holes outside of the lock so that the case can't be closed down anymore than you want it to. March 6, 2014
Poor design Whoever was in charge of the handle placement failed miserably. Sure, the tube does telescope to hold longer rods, and it is somewhat sturdy and takes a minor beating, but good luck trying to carry this thing through an airport or through some brush. This thing is off balance especially when filled with rods. But if you don't mind that, and just want to throw it in the back of a truck, it might be ok for you. January 10, 2015
Be sure before you buy this case! I was disappointed w/ the purchase of this case. Generally, it appears well made, and may suit some airline travel...But it is bulky; no easy way to lock it(which you must fight w/ the airlines to do-I still suggest carry on!). It does not open smoothly. I now use it for long road trips in my travel trailer; Look for another type case for day to day use! July 11, 2006

A: 
Probably not, unless you have a smaller reel or the reel handle can be folded. And if you managed to get one in there, you probably couldn't get another in with it.
