The end caps are Item #: 23284Do you have a Product # for that item ? Thanks !
Where do I turn in my man card?"I am going to start sewing rod socks for the rods to ride in inside the tube as I think they need that extra protection."
I would rethink posting something like this, a suggestion would be;
"I just finished cleaning my Shotgun and just got back from the Sports Club after eating a giant steak with shots of Jack and Budweiser Bottled Beer, I may have ask my significant other to sew up some rod socks for me cause I am busy next weekend watching the playoffs with my buddies"
Small holes in the cap will release the air and moistureThe end caps are Item #: 23284
The pipe itself is Item #: 24140
I checked our Lowe's...I have a part time job there and our pipe is 10' long. You can get 20' length at plumbing supply stores but the price goes up substantially.
I made mine and used two end caps. I made lanyards and used pop rivets with wire holders to attach the lanyards to both the pipe and the caps. I glued some foam I had to the inside of the caps to cushion the rods.
I even sewed a nylon carrying handle out of 2" webbing I had laying around. Somehow I managed to get it very snug and it works great. I have decorated the tube with bumper stickers to add flair.
One interesting fact about my design was when I put the cap on, the trapped air and will "pop off" the other cap if you do it fast. It is rather comical to watch as you walk back and forth replacing the caps.
I don't get to fish much so when I go to the coast I use some very heavy duty (each one supports 175#) zip-ties to go around the pipe and my rails on top of my SUV.
