i will be posting a rod or 2 in a few days but for extra protection can someone recommend a cheap way too keep the rod safer. ?

i was thinking cardboard tube and securing ends , but stumped on where too get it lol.
i was thinking off going too a carpet store up the road , im sure ive passed and seen cardboard tubes outside, possibly used for rolling carpet or lino or summit onto ?? suppose i will find out soon enough when i ask them :)

(sorry this must have been asked a million times but tried a search and couldnt see info )

any ideas ?
keeping costs too a minimum .

cheers.

I post rods quite often,I use the insert from a roll of carpet and stuff the ends with bubble wrap ten tape the ends with a flat piece of cardboard and LOTS of tape. I send my rods by courier as the post office wont accept anything over 1.5 metres. I use APC couriers and to post a 7foot long tube cost £10.58 including collection from my address this is for overnight delivery.
Hope this helps

I've used the cardboard carpet tubes to take rods over to Norway on the plane. Really tough and durable, for extra protection wrap the rods, especially the large eyes that will take the knocks first in bubble wrap or even the whole rod. Wrap the tip and but as well to be safe.

I use drainpipe for the same thing. Heavy drainpipe.
Is a good thing too, because last year when I picked it up from the luggage belt at the airport, the pipe had skid marks on it !

I doubt a cardboard tube would have survived whatever treatment it had endured...
