I saw some of these at a kayak fishing tournament last weekend.http://www.cabelas.com/fishing-rod-tube ... ck-7.shtml
I did not think too much about it at the time, but since then I have started transporting my PA by trailer and am now storing my rods inside the horizontal tubes during transport. My rod guides invariably get snagged on the PA storage tubes going in and out, and these "rod slicks" look like they may prevent this from occurring and protect things on a bumpy trailer ride as well. Anybody use these in the horizontal rod storage tubes? Do they fit the PA storage tubes OK? Are they worth the $10 cost?
