Anglers who travel with tackle can testify to the unwieldiness of rod tubes. That's why Dave Knoblauch created the Balance Handle, an adjustable grip that makes toting long tubes simpler. Frequent flyers - especially those who use schedule 40 PVC - will appreciate the Airporter Grip, made of Caprolan nylon wrapped around Flexpex tubing. The handle can be bent to a preferred shape; screws on each end of the handle allow travelers to move the grip up or down the tube. Knoblauch also makes the Molded Grip for less rugged use. Handles fit 2- and 4-inch, plain or fabric-covered pipe. Cost is $14.95 plus shipping. Visit www.balancehandle.com.
