Ultimate Rod Case vs Big Sky Rod Box A SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON

Ultimate Rod Case 4 Rod Fly Rod Case

The Ultimate Rod Case 4 Rod Fly Case is the most rugged, well-built, and carefully designed fly rod carrier on the market. From the hand-built in the U.S.16 gauge aluminum design, to the powder coat finish, and even the stainless steel hinges, the Ultimate Rod Case is built to last a lifetime. With an impressive capability to hold up to four fully constructed 9 foot fly rods, the Ultimate Rod Case makes getting on the river a breeze, and packing up your gear at the end of the day, effortless. The enclosed PVC piping and padding interior is bound to secure your rods as you traverse the rocky terrain home from your favorite stream. So whether you’re fishing the lower rivers, or climbing high to an alpine lake, make sure your rods are protected from the bumpy ride too and from the river with one of our Ultimate Rod Case fly rod carriers.

Big Sky Rod Box Original Fly Rod Carrier

The Big Sky Rod Box Original Fly Rod Carrier is a great alternative for anyone looking for a fly rod carrier almost as good as the Ultimate Rod Case. The Big Sky Rod Box has a robust design with heavy locking drawer latches. But be careful of the weight and foam, since all that weight means more gas getting to and from the river. On the otherside, if you’re looking for a bomb-proof carrier that will last almost as long as the Ultimate Rod Case and is far more expensive, then the Big Sky Box might be better for you. But if you value the standard high-performance materials and craftsmanship made in America, then the Ultimate Rod Case is the best choice for your next fly rod carrier.
