Anyone know where i can buy some sort of cloth fishing rod sock. not really into the plastic condom-like ones that have been popular last few years. something nice, thick, and soft to insert my rod into.

Thanks

Cloth ones suck to put on, especially if they get a little damp.
yeh dont want them necessarily for party boat/on-the-water application just want to be able to stack my current rods on top of each other (store them horizontally in a loft) without having to be too careful.

I don't like the fingertrap-style socks either. I prefer this, heck of a buy for $25:

Go on e-bay and search rod socks/sleeves. I have purchased a slew of them from some lady in the Midwest; great pricing and have been using them for years.

I make my own... 1.5 inch PET expandable braided sleeving. Cut it to desired length. fold out one side, use heat shrink on the other side.

Just got it from amazon. Perfect stuff to make sleeves out of. Fits over a Fuji k 25 with ease. Thanks again brother.
Gotta order like 6-8 more rolls. Tired of the ones I got barely fitting. I’m a nazi I put these style sleeves on with the cloth covers over those.

Lighter. Then fold it inside of itself
