Arne Mason Leather Tube - for a 8' 3/2 rod

Here is a lovely leather tube by the great Arne Mason, cut for an 8' 3/2 rod.  These tubes are simply the finest quality.  I bought this tube for a rod I never ended up buying, so save some money here.  This tube retails for $430 from Arne, here it is just $299 plus shipping.
