Great inshore travel rod
March 24, 2020
I've had this rod for 4 years and it's all around great. I've never had a problem with this rod and the TSA and I carry it on when I travel to Costa Rica. This is a great inshore reel for backbay stripers and bluefish in New Jersey, Redfish and seatrout in Charleston (anywhere down south) and for snappers, jacks and small roosterfish.
ProsGreat portability Great backbone Solid rod

These rods are perfect for going after mutton snapper when running from one flat to another. I mean, even fly fishermen gotta eat.

Excellent Travel Rod and Case
April 19, 2019
This travel rod is great. It comes in three pieces and breaks down very easily into a super sturdy, hard, protective, case. I am very impressed by the quality of the case as most brands do not focus as much attention to this.

The rod itself is a little stiffer than I expected; but, I had no problems slinging my baits out on the water. I fished this rod all day and it was a pleasure to use. I do wish there were guide marks to aid with alignment when assembling the rod. I used a gold metallic marking pen to create my own so it's quicker to put together next time.
ProsProtective travel case is phenomenal
ConsWish there were alignment guides to line up pieces easier.

I am a fly fisherman first and foremost. However, sometimes the weather does not cooperate and I have to use spin gear. This travel rod was purchased for those situations and it has lived up to its reputation. It warrants mentioning that this rod was highly recommended by two guides who guide on Long Island and Andros Island, Bahamas.
ProsPacks small. Great action. Durable.

Perfect inshore travel rod

This is the ideal inshore rod for stripers and blues in the Northeast, reds, drum and specks down south. Felt like a one-piece.

St Croix travel rod
September 24, 2015
If you travel the St Croix inshore travel spinning rod is a must. Resent Florida inshore trip proved to be an advantage. Took 3 rods and only 1 was a travel rod. May have to change my approach when traveling.

November 26, 2013
Took to Abaco, Bahamas and stayed @ Casaurina Point to try Bone Fishing, rod performed fabulously. Couldn't tell that it was 3 pieces, caught nice sized (4 - 6 lbs) Bone fish on the flats @ low tide and went up into the canal and caught 8lbs Snapper under the Mangroves and other Tropical fish (looked to cool to eat). Case a bit large to fit in luggage but who cares, paired it with a Shimmano 4000 Sedona / it was the real-deal Abaco Bone fishing.
ProsSolid feel when assembled and you have a fishing rod on Travel
ConsCan't fit into carry-on luggage and becomes your personal carry-on item (and wouldn't fit in snorkel & fins bag).
