Rod Vault - rod scuffing
I am wondering if anyone is having problems with scuffing of their rods when using a rod vault. I have a Denver Outfitters rod vault that I have used for several years. I love the convenience. I fish in Colorado and am often on bumpy dirt tracks. I have noticed scuffing on the the outside of the guide banding on my Scott Radian rods. One local fishing guide suggested that it may be the result of the rods bouncing inside my vault tube. Has anyone had similar experience? Is there a solution? One suggestion is that I use foam conduit insulation before I put the rod in the vault. It might be easier to simply break the rod down each time I move locations.
I'm eager to hear what others have to say.
