Stick Jackets are a long rod sleeve you put over your rod for storage. They solve a few problems I have been having for years on my boat. First and foremost, they keep my rods from getting tangled up. They also keep my longer rod tips from getting damaged on the inside front of my boat. Having to strip down 7 feet of line and a re-tying every time I pull a new rod out of my locker is a pain in the ass. Last but not least, my guides are not going to get banged up any more. These things rock.
