Welcome to the Forum Bud'. Loads of great advice on here. Tubes are a good idea but I've never had any trouble having rods just in the supplied Rod bag in a good Holdall. This one below looks the same as mine. Tubes (especially drain pipe adds extra weight to carry)

I only keep my Poles & top kits in tubes (thin poly') - mainly because they came with them.

Being a small guy, I use the carrying handles as a shoulder strap, the shoulder strap is a bit much for me & bag drags on the ground.

Brolly & Bank sticks etc fit in the 2nd pouch.

Thanks. I have a rod hold-all as it is, and the rod I bought has single-leg eyes and cost £400. I’d fly it by Learjet if I could! I think I’m going to try the pvc idea.

If you get pvc tubes, a little piece of soft foam rubber fitted snugly into the screw top will save the end eyelet(s) from getting damaged if the tube is upturned.
