Toccoa Rod Box Information

The Toccoa Rod Boxes come in two sizes, regular (67.5" in length) and large (118.5" in length). The regular option does not fit full rods; rods will have to be broken in half before and after each trip to fit in these boxes. The large box does fit full 9.5 foot rods, but is 66% more expensive than the regular box and weighs over 60 pounds. Due to their weight, the large boxes are only "recommended for large SUVs." Either way, these extra pounds will likely have a negative effect on your fuel efficiency. It is unclear where these rod boxes are designed and manufactured.

Although, considering their weight, Toccoa Rod Boxes may be made of study materials, this is not known. Additionally, purchasing the regular rod box means breaking your rod down each time you leave for and return from fishing, effectively negating the convenience of owning a rod box; purchasing the large box, though it will fit your rods at full length, means troublesome instillation and more strain on your vehicle due to its weight. If you want a full-size rod box made with materials known for their strength and not their heavy weight, the Ultimate Rod Case is the right call for you.
