five pocket fly rod sleeve

Can anyone steer me to where I can get a five pocket cloth sleeve for a 9' 4-piece rod with spare tip? I'd prefer to have it custom sown if possible. [Amazon offers one for $8.99 - I think I want to upgrade from that!]

Try Clear Creek. They have made cloth socks for me, 5 and 6 slot for 9ft rods.

I have a Clear Creek tube with integral 5 piece pockets for a 9 footer for some 20+ years now that is in good shape still, though the rod isn't. Found a Dan Craft 5 pc. 8 wt. last year to fill it up.

Thx Bill, Spencer. I also just found a company, Mountain Cork, that does cases, sleeves, etc. They use a waterproof fabric (looks like nylon cordura) that is lightly padded. Anyone familiar with them? mtncork.com
