Rod Guard® Blue TIG Wire Storage Canister RG300-12

The Blue Rod Guard® RG300-12 is specifically designed for 36" TIG welding wire, flux-coated bronze or brazing rod. It has 0.1" nominal wall thickness for added strength and durability. When long cap is removed, rod tips are exposed allowing easy accessibility to canister's contents. Built with commitment to quality, with the form, fit and function you've come to expect from Rod Guard® .

Rod Guard® canisters and accessories provide great storage and inventory control for all your welding electrodes, rods and filler metals. And every one of them is made in America and built to last. Each Rod Guard® canister is certified chloride-free and features a threaded cap with long-lasting neoprene seal to keep electrodes airtight-preventing them from being contaminated with atmospheric moisture. Because Rod Guard® canisters are constructed of high-impact polyethylene, which protect electrodes from damage, they can be reused for many years.

December 13, 2012
Would it be possible to get these rod guards in different colors? It may not increase the turnover of this product, but helps to organize the welding shop. I would not mind to pay a bit more for the extra feature and I think others will be interested as well. Thanks!
1 Answer
The Rod Guard-300 TIG Wire Storage Cannister is available only in blue or red(which is a special order).. No other colors are available

good for storing expensive filler rod
nice heavy duty rod holders and with the free shipping, it makes it worth it.
Prosheavy duty plastic with a soft rubber seal gasket
Consnone, a half size or 20" , because its hard to cut rods perfectly in half fast, storage container for tig rod would also be nice, if there isn't already some I am not aware of for sale.

Seals well, good construction
I put a dessicant in this tube and use it to hold my tig filler rods. It has a good seal to keep it air tight, and it's strong enough that nothing will crush it.

Keeps your expensive TIG filler clean and dry
These hold 10 lbs of steel or stainless steel or a little more than 5 lbs of aluminum TIG filler. Quickly opened or closed, rubber gasket keeps moisture out protecting your expensive filler and allows you to keep track of your stock too. 36" long rods fit perfectly.
ProsMoisture and dirt/dust protection. They look pretty durable. Helps you keep track of stock on hand, get your rods out of that cardboard box!
ConsNone that come to mind, since they are plastic don't place them on your table or platen.

Works Great
Ordered two of these to store some stainless filler I had purchased, I was able to fit 10lbs of filler in each canister easily with a little room to spare. They are built very nicely and the seal looks like it will last a long time. Overall a nice product and I plan on purchasing two more for future use.
ProsNice build quality, holds 10 lbs of rod.

It's a plastic blow-molded tube rod holder, holds 10 lbs., fast twist thread, rubber seal, rugged.

ConsNo built-in holes or grooves to help secure either of the two pieces on a rig.

tig rod holders
i like the organization part of doing metal work. also it pretty easy to separate different rods for different metals instead of trying to read tiny numbers on the rods. also if you are stupid like me and burn both ends of a rod, you can have a better chance of using the correct rod for the purpose.

Rod Guard
These are a great way to organize and protect your filler metals. No more dealing with the plastic tubes filler rod comes in that cracks and splits the first week! I like these so much I'm trying to think of other things I can use them for.
ProsAffordable. Durable.

quality storage container
I was looking for containers to store my tig wire and found these. They are a great value and look better then the ghetto pvc containers everyone tries to make on their own. They each hold 10lbs of tig rod which is not mentioned in the description For anyone wondering. These seem like they would last for awhile.
Pros Hold 10lbs of tig rod.

The Rod Guard is GREAT!
I received the Rod Guard from Cyberweld quickly after ordering.
This cannister is a must have for me and I have several of them.
One holds my 36 inch Tig steel wire, one holds the aluminum wire, and the third holds the SS wire.
ProsThe cannister has a thick rubber gasket between the top and the body to seal out any moisture. This works very well for me as I live in a very humid Gulf Coast area. Everybody needs one or more of these!

Best there is
I've been using the smaller version of these for years for stick electrodes including 70xx. Just tried the long ones for TIG filler. Just like before, they are excellent. They each hold about 10lb of wire. Write the rod type on the top and you don't have to squint to see the marking on the rod, and the big blue case is a lot easier to find.
ProsThey seal very well and hold a lot of rod. Price is good.
ConsNone in 35 years

great product!
This is an excellent substitute for the tubes tig rod normally comes in...they always split on me. I think different colors for different filler rods would be great as well as a strap. I might just make that myself.
Prossturdy good color
ConsNo strap. No other color choices.

Keeps your wire clean and dry!
Nice little holder to which keeps the dirt and dust as well as moisture off your TIG wire. Some thin wall tubing makes a great vertical stand to hold a grid of these right on the back of your welder cart.
ProsAir tight

No more lame rod guards
I resisted buying these because new rods will generally come in their own tube container that works fine. However, I have had a few start to fall apart and make a mess of the rods, plus they were hard to use while wearing welding gloves.

These rod containers are SOLID and will not only protect your rod from bumps, but the rubber gasket will keep out moisture as well. I have set up a color code for the rod I use. These blue ones get aluminum rod only. (Orange get mild steel rod, and yellow get stainless rod.) This reminds me to make sure my TIG machine is set to AC (blue) or DC (orange & yellow).
ProsBeefy - will protect the rod from rough handling Color - Blue for my aluminum rods Textured outside - easy to open and close with welding gloves Straight - I've seen others that are like a banana Will last forever Looks professional - beats the cardboard box I was using before
ConsWas hoping the blue color would match my Miller equipment. It more matches the Bosch blue-green color.
