Just wondering if anyone has a spare fabric rod sleeve lying around that they don't need. Just bought my daughter a small rod to start her off but it didn't come with a sleeve. Ive seen a few on ebay for cheap but it looks like they are all from china or the like. Obviously I'm willing to pay if you have one knocking around.

Thanks.

I had the same problem when I bought a 9 foot tip rod, there was no sleeve. I couldn't find one that would take the rod and 3 tips, but leaving the tips easily accessible. The other half made me one out of an old pair of jeans.

what annoys me is that I threw 2 out during the summer when I was clearing the sheds out :mad:

That's the way it happens. You don't use it for a while so it gets binned, only to find that you need it later. Done the same thing myself. What length is the rod? And does it break down or is it telescopic?

its a 2 piece 5' 6" rod. I have a spare tube for it just wanted a sleeve as a bit extra protection for it. I know my little one and she'll want to know why mine has one and hers doesn't :rolleyes:

If you have one of these sewing/alterations type shops near you that keep springing up, you could get them to knock one up for you. It'll be even cheaper if you take your own fabric (from market stall etc.?). Then little girl can have her own 'customised' sleeve, sew on her initials to make it special and all is well.
