I love the workmanship involved in making this really nice leather map/plan case. That said, I am an avid fly fisherman who has been looking for a suitable leather case for my vintage bamboo fly rods - I'm old school. This case was nearly perfect except it was too flexible to provide the necessary protection for my valuable rods. So, I began searching for a protective insert that would save the day. I found that a piece of 3" thin wall PVC was almost, but not quite perfect. I modified the pipe so it would fit in the case (the outside diameter of the pipe was about 1/16" too large) so now I have the perfect traditional leather case to protect my favorite fly rods when traveling. I think other fly fishermen would like this case as well so the folks making it might want to increase the inside diameter just ever so slightly so a piece of 3" thin wall PVC could be easily slipped inside when extra protection of the contents is needed, whether the contents are plans, maps or fly rods. Its a great, well made and very attractive case that I am proud to show off to my fishing buddies. TLW
We purchased the blueprint tube as a gift for our home builder. He was amazed, surprised and very appreciative. Geoff and Valerie certainly make nice stuff!
Excellent quality. Beautiful design every time I’m riding I get compliments
Beautiful. Really has a lot of uses. Great seller, great experience, and super great case! Thank you :)
Full of anticipation I was opening the box in which the tube was shipped. It was well wrapped and one could immediately see that Walnut Studiolo took a lot of care not only in manufacturing the product itself but also something trivial as the shipping of it. The tube is awesome!!! I have already used it for travels to a conference. I received nice comments and it definitely stood out from the crowd. Thanks again!
