I need to sent back a fishing rod for warranty replacement. Anyone have recommendation? Looking for the lowest standard rate. UPS, FedEx or USPS? Standard rod tube. I could cut it down some (6') if that reduces the cost.

Never use USPS. Last time I shipped rods with them, they mutilated one of them.

pcv tube 2.5 inch or 3 inch

any company is fine

cardboard tubes, your asking for trouble expecially with the smaller diameter ones.


Dont try and take someones shine away..... Doing so just shows YOUR weak character.

get some 3" sch 20 pvc and caps, a stick of 1/2" pipe insulation for around the rod, tape it on. cheap insurance if it is just repairs and not replacement, ups only.

UPS. Cardboard or pvc. Just make sure tube is under 96”. Should be around $40. I’ve sold and shipped tons of them. Never. NEVER! Use USPS. They lose [censored] and break [censored]. Bottom line.

+1 usps, ups, and fedex will break the cardboard tubes.

I ordered a ACC CRAPPIE STIX on the 27th off July. They used USPS and its still not here. I’ve contacted USPS and all they can say is that’s it’s in transit. The tracking number tell me the same thing. Contacted ACC and they said it’s a shipping issue. No help really so don’t use USPS they sck. Spend a few more dollars and use UPS of FED-Ex.
