The Saber Tackle DPM 12 ft Rod Sleeve Holdall comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.


THERE’S a huge amount of space in the 3-rod Saber Tackle DPM 12 ft Rod Sleeve Holdall. Also featuring a long external pocket for bank sticks, throwing sticks or landing net pole, plus a separate umbrella pouch, the main compartment will swallow ready-rigged 12 ft rods in well-padded and divided security.

A full-length zip offers easy access, and the external pockets also have either tough zippers, or sturdy clips for fastening.

Finished in a smart camouflaged, heavy-duty material, this sleeve is also water resistant to keep valuable kit dry and to-hand at the start of a session. The camo finish is continued to the internal dividers to ensure wary carp on pressured waters don’t spook while tackling up.

With both a carry handle and a well-padded shoulder strap, ingeniously clipped to offer a dual-purpose from a single, weight-saving strap, this sleeve will be at home on a stalking session, carried over a shoulder for a long hike, or loaded on a barrow.

Price: £49.99.
