These seem like very good boots. I had a few questions for the company and they were very responsive.
I use these in a rooftop rod vault type carrier. The tip loops and shrink wrap on the end of them made them somewhat difficult to load into my rod carrier, but it was an easy "fix". I cut the bungee off and trimed back the shrink tube wrapper to make it more striaght/streamlined. Now i dont have to have perfect aim to get my 10' nymph rod in the carrier.
The Trxstle rod boots are just what I have been looking for. For years I haven’t fully taken advantage of my rooftop rod carrier because leaving strung rods in it too long wears the finish and guides. The boots allow me to keep my go-to rods ready. After using one set for a couple of weeks, I ordered a second set so I can have two client rods and two of my own safely locked and loaded. These boots are quality and they solve a real problem simply and effectively. As a bonus, they’ve got style, too. Well done Trxstle.
The rod sleeves work great for my needs. I find they are about 5" too long for a 9' rod but easily workable for my needs. The extra length helps to give a bit of cushion for the tip. Will be perfect for switch and shorter spey rods. I have noticed the guides do get hung up on as others mentioned but not a deal breaker for me.
