Dont know why I never thought to turn my TUSA case into a sling but as soon as I saw it done I had to do it to mine. I included a loop to hang my net on and the reach I get from it allows me to land fish without unhooking the net, which is a big plus for me! :-D

kinda heavy though? the ebira works well, as would a nylon hand sewed equivalent. if you wanted extra protection, try a fluorescent tube plastic tube, just big enough diam for one rod, and very lightweight plastic protection sleeve that can be used as a quiver also for easy rod access. not original, UL backpacking fly fisherman use them for a conventional fly rod case. I just prefer to go simple and stick the rod in my belt like others.

The ebira is awesome. I'd love to get the ebira plus someday; but it's also upwards of 50 bucks... This is free and functional for the time being. I suppose I could construct my own; one made out of Cuban fiber would be sick!

The Ebira probably wouldn't protect from breakage in a hard fall. The Ebira is a soft case, just an ultralight way to carry your rod. I do love mine though as it slings over your back and stays nice and tight.
