A drawback is the weight of the tube--It's, well, a brick.
Also, the tube is about 2-3 inches taller than the tallest rod segment. I wouldn't care except that it's already a close call as to whether it will fit in my largest suitcase. Since Mexico doesn't allow rods as carry-on, I might have to check it as a separate piece of luggage, which will cost at least $50 round trip. But let's see if it fits in my suitcase.
All that said, I'm pretty sure I will love the rod in the long run. Bottom line is that in high-end travel surf rods I don't find any better options out there. Will just have to sort out the travel details.
Can't wait to put this travel rod to good use!!
Captain mate wants me to bring one for them next time I come. Best rod he had cast. Works great from the beach. All in all 5 stars. You can cover a lot or water with the rod. Matched with shimano Saragossa 6000.
