Building on the success of Okuma Nomad travel rods, Nomad Inshore Travel rods deliver a concise selection of all-around destination rods with worldwide utility (and a far better experience than fishing a beat up lodge rod).

Each rod includes two tip sections, one lighter and one heavier, to increase versatility while keeping luggage to a minimum. Premium components were chosen for rock-solid dependability with the realization that home may be continents away.

Nice rod, bit lighter than expected

Very nice looking rod, great finish. Nice reel seat. The 3pc is an awesome feature, and with these ferrule connections, it feels close enough to a one-piece. Definitely not worse than a 2pc. So, great for travelling.
The rod M-MH is a bit lighter than I was expecting. Visually, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between the 2 tips. Although, there is only a few pounds difference, I was hoping/expecting a bigger difference.
Prosnice finish nice reel seat components 3 pc great good connections sensitive enough tip for lure action
Consnot much difference between 2 tips lighter than expected

Would this pair well with Penn Slammer 5500 for Caribbean beach, inshore, and flat fishing. 
1 Answer
The slammers are great reels but you want to downsize the 5500 to a 4500 to balance out better with the nomad inshore
