Plano® Rod Tube
20 years service
Just bought this tube to replace it's predecessor of 20 years service. It IS indestructable plastic, but the airlines and shipping freight lines finally broke the clip latch after 5 over the ocean international trips. Have put it in and out of my truck a 1000 times and it has rolled around a lot. looking forward to a repeat of 20 more years .

The worst rob tube ever!!!!!!!!!
I when to Florida for a long weekend and I bought some fishing staff to take back to Costa Rica… In that Staff I bought 6 fishing rods to be place in this tube to ship it back to Costa Rica.
On Saturday I pick up the staff, I place the 6 rods on the tube and went to hotel. On Sunday, at the rent a car counter the tube handle break in half, the material of the handle attachment to the tube is made of a very soft, easy to break & not durable material.
I’m very sad/mad about Plano; I always buy Plano staff because I still have my grandfather tackle box that bought maybe 30 years ago… I’m not using it but still work perfect… either way, stay away from this product, is made from cheap material and will not last even the first use.
Now I have a broken rob tube that is impossible to be use and I can return it because I’m In Costa Rica.
Plano… I think is better that you don’t place your brand name in this kind of products that are only for EXHIBITIONS PURPOSES ONLY!!!!!!!!! This tube is useless for someone that likes to fish and will use the product more than 1 time to carry lightweight rods!!!!!!!
Also the description it’s wrong, in the web page state that the tube is 5 5/8” diameter and actually, the “useful” diameter is not more than 4.5”
The product will not last the first use and the description is wrong = stay away from this product.
