Do Rod Sleeves Actually Protect Your Fishing Rods? (Rod Jacket Review)
By: Tony Acevedo on May 19, 2020
Have you ever broken a rod while transporting or storing it?
I have, and it’s incredibly frustrating.
In hopes of protecting my rods, I recently started using rod sleeves.
Rods (especially the eyes) can get stuck or tangled with one another or on other objects, which is a big cause of them breaking.
Rod sleeves, or rod jackets, help protect your rods and decrease the chances that they get stuck on something.
However, rod jackets come with their own set of hazards as well.
In this video, I’m going to talk about the pros and cons of using them, as well as address the big question: do they even work?

Alright, let’s get into the pros and cons of rod sleeves.
- They prevent your guides from catching or getting tangled on things (including your other rods)
- They protect your rods from getting nicked
- They don’t cost much
- If you get a rod sleeve that’s too short, it can put pressure on your rod tip and may break it
- Hooks are easily snagged in the nylon material
Whether you have a $50 rod or a $500 rod, you probably want to make it last as long as you can.
Rod sleeves can help do that, as long as they’re the right length for your rod.
