I carry my 5 piece 6wt Browning rod and a 4 pc Shakespeare Ugly Stick spinning in a 3.5 " tube mounted LHS between GIVI mount and LHS bag. The tube is expandable and while I can't carry the rods in their own shortened cases - it's well protected. Cheap but works.
Ladukebob - agree it's hard to find a good multipiece fly rod - I looked a lot before settling on the Browning as best value in $ and quality. It's comparable to my 6wt Sage and Reddingtons I have and a lot less $ - got mine at Bassppro for about $170 and goes everyhwere with me - including business trips. Might want to have a look at that. ALso have a 4 piece Sage 4wt that is pretty slick as well.
