shipping tubes for fishing rod?

where can a person get the cardboard tube? I need three badly. I should also add that I'm shipping rods to people who want to buy them from me so the cheapest way will be better.
I'm in Virginia Beach, thanks

Yeah your probably right. I just dug the tube out and it weighed a fair amount. My problem was that in the UK drainpipes are made of the heavier stuff so a carpet tube weighed less than that option. Also it was free
