packing to move

How do you pack up your rod collection to move safely and space efficiently?

Fat ones, skinny ones, long ones, short ones....I don't even want to think about counting all the rods in my collection but there are a lot.

How do you box them up to move?

Hello Jay.

I have rod socks for all my finished rods.
when I move I take a moving blanket and stack my rods (socks on) on the blanket and wrap the blanket around them, then tape the blanket with duct tape.

I left a message in the other thread , didn't even see there was two of them , seems Robert offered good advice . If you don't have rod sleeves , i make my own out of flannel and each has two sections sewn together, one for the butt and one for the top half of the rod . If you have sleeves on the rods then you can just slide a bunch of them into a hard PVC tube if a crushing impact is a possibility .
