When your angling discipline calls for the range and flexibility that only a long rod can offer, you need tackle luggage that can cope. With the Defender range from JRC, finding suitable rod storage and carry options is truly effortless.
The JRC Defender 3 Rod Sleeve 12-13ft, for example, can easily accommodate everything you’ll need for a decent session in one durable, tough, and water-resistant, 500D polyester sleeve, ideal if you only have a small car or tackle trolley, and need to maximise the space.
With the capacity to take up to three rods of 12ft, 12ft 6”, and 13ft, and featuring a padded reel pocket, as well as large external pockets to accommodate bankside brollies and banksticks, this rod sleeve features internal dividers to keep your rods from knocking against each other in transit, which could potentially result in damage, and a fully padded exterior to protect your tackle from knocks and bumps while you’re barrowing to your swim.
Heavy duty 10mm zips add to the sleeve’s durability, and ensure that, however heavy-handed you may be, thanks to cold, numb hands, pouring rain, or simply a sudden realisation that you have ten minutes to be twenty minutes’ drive away, in order to avoid the fury of your non-angling-enthusiast other half, who has more mundane plans for your time, the zips won’t break, jam, or snag. Heavy duty zips also stand up better to the weight of good quality fishing rods and other tackle that you’ll typically be carrying in the Defender rod sleeve. The main sleeve area features a full length zip, which makes getting rods in and out of the sleeve effortless, even in difficult conditions, or when you’re in a hurry.
Featuring webbing carry handles and a padded shoulder strap, this is a durable, hard-wearing, fully water-resistant item of fishing luggage from a brand that’s quietly building on a reputation for quality, value for money, and optimal performance that’s already been long established.
