I will often have several feeder rods with me when fishing the river Trent to cover all eventualities, so I was on the look-out for a new holdall that would allow me to carry multiple made-up rods safely and securely. After a few months of use I can report that the Sphere Multi Rod Carrier has filled this role superbly, enabling me to keep all my feeder rods organised and ready to go.

Like all of the Sphere luggage range, the finish is superb. Made from the iconic woven carbon-effect fabric, which is not only really durable, but wipe clean as well – perfect for those muddy winter banks. All of the fittings, and particularly the zips, are really strong and will gives years of service, as you would expect from a Sphere product.

Inside, the dividers enable four made-up rods to be carried with plenty of room to spare. In fact, you can easily sneak in another rod if you need to, or a couple of spare rods in their bags. Whilst this isn’t a compact bag, the size does mean that you can carry everything, including the kitchen sink!

The semi-rigid design is well padded and gives excellent protection to my expensive feeder rods. There is even an internal pocket especially for spare tips, which is a really nice touch.

Whilst luggage like this is likely to spend most of its life on the barrow, the quality shoulder strap and carry handles have proven invaluable when there is the odd fence, or even steep banks, to negotiate.

If you want to carry your made up rods in total security then you really need to check this bag out at your local Browning stockist.
