Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.

There is only one original.

  • A “push-on” – “push-off” motion that eliminates the guide or hook hang-ups.
  • A rod protector of your valuable investments from scratches, guide damage, line breakage, and rod locker damage.
  • Features a tough, double layered, size color coded, reinforced tip which protects your rod tips, & makes loading into rod tubes fast, easy, prevents tangling.
  • Added benefit for co-anglers to help keep rods tangle free and easily accessible in a limited space.
  • Easy and safe way to transport your rods.


Improved Mouth

The new and improved pliable, rubber-type “mouth” on the bottom end of the Rod Sox seals the mesh from fraying or unrolling, as well as protects the rod paint from any scratching from open mesh. In addition, the rubber mouth provides about a 1 3/4″ protective barrier between the hook and the mesh to prevent hang-ups.

Mesh Density

The Original Rod Sox have the densest mesh of any rod protector on the market. This makes them more durable over time, improves the protection of your rod, and allows a tighter weave for added safety of rod guides, especially micro-guides.


Rod Sox can go on wet or dry equipment. The breathable mesh allows air to easily pass through allowing any moisture out and drying your rod and line.

Durable Tag

With the addition of a hang hole in the new, durable, rubber tag, rods can now be “hung up” for storage, a great and safe way to save room and keep your rod out of harm’s way laying or leaning elsewhere. After the Rod Sox is completely seated on the rod, with a gentle tug on the rubber mouth it will “lock” the Rod Sox in place, and it won’t slip off. When it’s time to go fishing, a simple push of the mouth upwards releases the “lock” and the Rod Sox will just slide right off.

Safety Tip

The tough, double layered, size color coded, tapered tip of our Rod Sox protects the last guide/tip of rod from the wear and tear of placing or removing rods from rod lockers or any type of storage.

Easy Identification

The tip is wrapped with a tough, double layered, size color to indicate the length of the rod it fits so that you can easily tell your rods apart and know which Rod Sox go on what rod when ready for storage. (For Example: green tip is for a 6’6″ rod, while red tip is for a 7′ rod etc…

“The Original Rod Sox excel where other imitations fail. Their weave is the tightest on the market, so I never get guide damage. The rubber end keeps all my hooks from getting caught. It’s simple, the Original Rod Sox do what they are supposed to do.” – Mark Zona

“I have to protect my rods in the best and most efficient way possible. Of course, my choice is the ‘Original’ Rod Sox.” – Jeff Kriet
