The Rod Sock rod cover helps protect your rod as well as keeps your line and lures from tangling with your other fishing rods while walking, driving or stored in your boat. They also help protect your rods from nicks and scratches that could compromise the integrity and strength of the rod and eyelets. The plastic mesh is designed to easily pull over your rod and if you hook your lure, it is super easy to get the hook out. When we get to the lake the last thing you want to do is spend 15 minutes untangling your rods. This is a huge timesaver and stress reducer. This rod sock covers poles 5'6'' to 7'6.
