i'd check out tackle warehouse's stock and perhaps "Metallic Foil Silicone Strips" in Black/Red at Jann's netcraft.

Re: Suggestions for case to protect one piece rods

somewhere i have seen the use of a piece of an old rod or tube being secured to a couple of guides(maybe taped to rod?) and extending past tiptop an inch or more to prevent the rod tip from being "jammed" into the tube cap. may have been a JDM rod shipment. makes sense to me.
