Cordura Rod Tube
Posted by: John Wright (---.om.om.cox.net)

I have been making rod tubes from wood and PVC for a while now. I would like to find a way to cover some of them with Cordura like some of the commercial rod tubes. Has anyone ever worked with Cordura to make the tube covers? I seem to remember several years back seeing an advertisement for just the covers that could then be stretched over the tube, but Google hasn't yielded any results so far.
Thanks.

Cordura does not stretch !! I do not know how they do it, but the cordura covered tubes I purchase have it very tight to the pvc tube.

Perhaps the Cordura is glued to the tube rather than stretched. I recently finished a 9 ft 4-piece fly rod and was thinking how best to make a tube. But I would up purchasing a Reddington fly rod tube for $24 with Cordura outer. While I am a DIYer at heart, at that price it is hard to beat and I would rather use my time making rods. Or fishing. Good luck to you!

Is it possible that it’s applied wet? Might be more supple that way and shrink tight when dry.

I still have a few of those cordura tube covers. They really don’t stretch. You insert the correct size PVC tube. It’s snug but still slightly movable. Probably easier to buy pre made
