perfect travel and surf rod
This is a beauty : light, great handle, seat and grip. very nice solid slip that nice wip.
ProsI tried matching this with both spinning size 8000 and conventional size 10 (shimano) and i think it fits well. I have to still use it/ cast it with the conventional to see how far can I cast.
Consi dont see any at this time.

Great Travel Rod
I was amazed at how well a five piece travel rod was able to cast three and four ounce lures with no problem. The rod is very light and does most of the work.

Daiwa Travel Surf Rod
Been looking for a travel rod for some time, so when I saw this, I applied my birthday bonus and got a very nice deal.
ProsCompact, decent carry case with fitted internal sleeves for each section. . Goes together easily, sections don't jam. Good quality. Appears Chinese, but what isn't these days.
ConsNone, so far.

How are these made for spinning and casting reels? The first guide is very small so I am wondering doesn't that decrease casting distance for a spinning reel?
1 Answers
The line going through a smaller guide actually increases casting distance especially when using braid due to the soft nature of the line.

Would the MH Travel Rod work for the Cape Cod Canal?
1 Answers
You would want to use a rod with a bit more backbone fishing in the canal. The ODM Jigster series rods would be good rods to look into fishing in a canal with heavy currents and baits.
