Aluminum Rod Cases
NOTE: The 3” diameter Rod Case is no longer available
 
REC's reputation for quality is built on over 30 years of adherence to the highest manufacturing standards while using the best available materials and finishing processes. All aluminum rod cases are manufactured from hard drawn, high strength, lightweight aircraft grade tubing (wall thickness=0.035"). REC offers aluminum cases in 5 diameters (outside diameter). To determine inside diameter subtract 0.070". For instance, the inside diameter of a 2" case is 1.93". This wide range of tube diameters offers anglers the opportunity to protect almost any rod. REC rod cases are engineered to ensure functional, durable, and lasting protection for fishing rods while enhancing the perceived value to the contents. Our continual improvement in product design, materials, and aesthetic enhancements guarantees that REC's rod cases are the best available. All REC products are 100% made in the USA.
NOTE: ALL ROD CASES ARE ASSEMBLED TO ORDER,
TYPICALLY TAKING 5 BUSINESS DAYS UNTIL SHIPMENT.

 
How To Specify a REC Rod Case:
1. Determine Case Length.
Measure the length of the longest rod section. We recommend adding 1 1/2" to measured length to accommodate a rod bag and ensure sufficient interior space. The interior length of all REC cases is exactly as specified. If the section length cannot be determined when ordering, divide the overall rod length in inches by the number of sections and add 2 1/2" to accommodate the ferrules. The additional 2 1/2" length is required to accommodate normal ferrule length for rods under 12 feet assembled. Add 3 1/2" for rods 12 feet and over. For help with determining length see Rod Case Specification Table.
 
2. Determine Required Diameter.
Two piece freshwater rods can ordinarily be cased in 1 5/8" tubes. Saltwater, Spey and multipiece rods are ordinarliy cased in 2", 2 1/4", and 2 1/2" diameter tubes. Please allow room for the rod bag, over size guides, and fighting butts. NOTE: Every REC rod case incorporates our exclusive CaseLockTM bottom system to ensure the security of case contents. Specify rod case by indicating the product designation code (SKU) followed by the appropriate length in inches.
EXAMPLE: RCB 38.5 (indicates 2" diameter x 38.5" interior length.)
For help with determining diameters see Rod Case Specification Table below.

3. Specify Tube Treatment.
REC offers two types of aluminum tube treatments: Mill Finish and Powder Coated in many attractive standard colors. The mill finish tubing is economical, yet attractive in a traditional style. Our powder coated tubes are highly resistant to abrasion, UV light, saltwater, gasoline, and DEET (insect repellent) to ensure lifetime use in demanding conditions. Powder coated surfaces (except Mineral Bronze) are textured to enhance the beauty of the case and prevent scuffing.
