Des Taylor wanted to make these rod sleeves truly versatile. Not only holding rods up to 12ft in length but also being able to hold reels from small feeder reels right up to big carp sized reels, that modern day specimen anglers use. His aim was to have a rod sleeve that did away with the fiddly nature of many, allowing him to pack away with ease and minimum frustration. Des wanted everything to be of the highest quality, ensure it will last the course of walking great distances and constantly changing swims.
The sleeves are made from 1100 Desitex Cordura Military Grade Material with 5mm of internal padding. The black velour interior contrasts with the Coyote Brown outer, to make a stunning looking sleeve. The zip is opened with a large sized, Ultraglide zip and rubberised grip handle for ease of use even in the coldest weather. Each sleeve has a snap hook that can be used to secure it inside our CL10 Specimen Quiver. Each sleeve is bult with plenty of room for 10ft, 11ft and 12ft rods and reels of all sizes.

Cadence CL Specimen Luggage Range
Designed by Des Taylor and built with confidence by Phil Ogden in the UK, this is one of the best Specimen Luggage ranges ever developed. Who better to tell you about the concept behind this range of luggage than the man himself – “I go river fishing in the region of three times a week, sometimes more than that, so to say my gear must be robust is an understatement! I have been testing this range of luggage for 12 months now and in all my sixty years of fishing, it is without doubt, the best luggage I’ve ever used. These products are made by Phil Ogden, who specialises in making bespoke gun luggage, and this range of Specimen Luggage is in another league compared to anything else on the market.”
