Shipping Multiple Rods in PVC Pipe

I'm planning on shipping several rods together in wide PVC pipe (via fedex). How do you secure the caps on the ends, with cement or packing tape? Let me know? Also, should I use bubble wrap?

Bubblewrap, or anything which'll keep the rods cushioned and separated will work fine, and be sure to pad the ends with some cushioning material, inside of both caps. Cement will make things pretty miserable for the recipient. A half dozen lashings of fiber reinforced filament tape over the caps and down onto the tube, followed by a few overwraps around the tube will secure things just fine. PVC caps have an internally tapered fit and if you "tap" them solidly into place, they'll probably have to be hammered off, although I wouldn't trust that for shipping and would use the tape, as above. My rods have survived airline handling just fine for years with this setup and that's a pretty serious field test smile.gif
