This case is vey well made as is typical for Fishpond quality. It will easily hold 4 9 ft rods in their socks, possibly more depending on style of rod (fighting butt vs standard reel seat). Organization for reel pockets is easily adjustable with velcro dividers. I use this case for everyday fishing trips (keeps everything organized in one area) and for traveling. Highly recommended.

Used this a couple of tomes last week. Was really great for organizing. If you are taking 4 rods and larger saltwater reels it may be cramped. But this thing is solid and worked for all my freshwater rods and reels. It will be nice to carry on instead of getting there with pieces.

I've been looking for a nice carry bag for my rods and reels and once again Fishpond has delivered. Currently I have two rods, three reels, two pairs of sunglasses and four fly boxes in the case. Once on the river, I can pick what is needed, throw it in the sling and off I go. Very useful piece of equipment.

Nice quality rod & reel carrier. Hope to use it to carry fly rods & reels traveling in the future.

This is a great bag. Everything I own from Fishpond is top class and this is no exception. It looks good, does it job and is a joy to use. I store my rods and reels in these-one bag for each rod weight. When I want to go fishing I just pull out the appropriate bag and everything I need (short of boots and clothing) is inside. Love it and highly recommend

Fishpond has some great gear bags and this is one of them...currently I use it for reel storage but great for short trips with rods and reels.

The Dakota case is fabulous. It holds eight rods and reels and has pockets for fly lines, leaders, tippets, flies, and all the other gear needed for an extended trip. The quality is spot on. I highly recommend it to anyone.

As always a fantastic product from Fishpond. Well constructed and thought out. If you pack it properly, you are good for an overnighter to the Bahamas. No waiting for lost luggage.

After nearly 10 years of hard use, this bag is still the perfect answer to my rod, reel, and leader/tippet transportation needs. Sure, it's got a few worn areas, but all the zippers work perfectly, and the design is ingenious. This is the first - and still the best - of the "long-profile" style of carrying cases. Many have imitated it, but not have surpassed it.

Perfect for carrying prized rods/reels through airports without checking.
