I am in need of 2 fly rod tubes for 4 piece, 9' rods. Anyone have any laying around they'd like to sell? They'd need to accommodate up to 10 wt. rods with a fighting butt.

I stopped in at a Cabelas and strolled through the bargain cave to purchase for my 2 wt TFO Finesse. $6.00 later I emerged with a CGT tube that works well.

I've made custom length rod tubes out of black ABS drain pipe with either threaded or friction-fit caps. They're not overly pretty or light, but dang are they durable. Had one run over by a full-size 4x4 on soft ground, and it (and the rod) survived unharmed.
So, if no bargains surface here, you might try that.

That's where I found mine too.
I would look online for a tube- sometimes they'll run discounted or free shipping specials
