Howdy,
I recently bought a new Orvis Battenkill 8 foot two piece rod . However it has no tube. So I am once again looking for your help.
Where can I buy a rod tube for a two piece 8' rod [ meaning a 4' tube with that touch of wiggle room at the top .I'd love to find a good sock for it as well.
Thanks to one and all!

Mike, rod cases are everywhere. Do you want a specific case from Orvis or will any generic case do? If so eBay would probably be the easiest place to start.

Mike,

These were about the best prices I saw.

If you check out REC you can order any size tube and sock you want, in a variety of finishes. I recently ordered one for a bamboo rod I'm almost done building. $30 to $40 if I remember correctly.
