I use a tackle box. Just the single hinged lid type with dividers. I like the Plano stowaway type. They come in different sizes.You can split the guides up by sizes and types. Or put sets together in one compartment. Make sure you keep in original packaging or label in some way. I have a whole bunch of guides I have no clue what exactly they. Had them in a cardboard box in plastic bag type original packaging. Box got wet. In a hurry I unbagged all the guides and dumped them out to dry. Never took the time to keep track of what was what.

Rick,
2X Michael’s comments and avoid the cardboard box.

I use two storage tackle boxes. One for new guides and one for used guides taken from broken or discarded rods.

Also have a compartment for new and used tips.

I normally use the Plano 3600 boxes.

Here is one example of a lot of 4 boxes for a good price:

[www.amazon.com]

The compartments are adjustable and you can adjust them to any desired size.
I use one or more boxes for each type guide brand.

------------------
For more storage, the 3700 boxes are larger and thinner to allow easier access to the contents of each compartment.
[www.amazon.com]

Then, I store the Plano boxes in a larger plastic storage box that will hold a dozen or so boxes. That way, all of the guides are in one easy to store location.

I do the same thing with wrapping thread. All of the thread in plano boxes and then the boxes are in a larger plastic box. So, normally most of the wrapping equipment is in two boxes and one more box for the tools and adhesive etc.

----------------------------------
When I am working on Electronic projects, I stow the rod building gear and bring out the electronic gear and use the same bench. Compact storage and easy to change from one to something else in a few minutes.

Ill echo the same sentiments above. I keep all my supplies in plano boxes. I keep all my guides in one, brushes in another, small grips in another..etc. This keeps things simplified and orderly.

Big THANKS to all of you who responded...I appreciate the info. I was thinking that Plano 3600 boxes would be the way to go....All of you all affirmed it.
