Good Travel Rod
Have not had a chance to take this on a plane yet but have used nearby my home a couple of times. Rod is well built. Guides are all smooth. All pieces fit together nicely. Travel case is sturdy and I know I can fit at least one more travel rod inside. Overall good rod for the cost.

Impressed
I'm incredibly impressed with the fit and finish of these rods. The quality of the cork handle, reel seat and guides is very comparable to a much more expensive rod. I purchased a 7' Medium to pair up with a 3000 Stradic and I love the combo for traveling. I make bi-monthly trips to South Fla and only a few trips in so far I am really impressed with these rods. The rod tube it comes in might just be the most robust I have ever owned and can fit an extra rod, I carry 2 in mine and its super easy to throw in the overhead bin of any commercial plane and never have to worry about your rods.
ProsQuality construction, unbeatable price.
ConsCan't find one.

Good travel rod, great value
Bought this rod for a trip to FL, along with another travel rod that cost more than 2x as much. I used one and my son used the other. With changing bait/lures, we swapped rods many times, and I wouldn't be able to tell you which rod was which without looking at the brand info by the grip.
Proslight, felt like one piece, nice hard case for travel/protection

Buy with confidence!
This travel rod has met every expectation and then some. I first want to talk about the cork. It's nice. Real nice. Cut and shaped clean, there were no missing chunks or abrasions from the factory. I immediately coated with U-40 Cork Seal when I received the rod and left it to dry for 24 hours. Upon inspection all of the seal was drawn in the material and hardened as it should.

Don't expect the quality of cork to be the finest AAA Portugal grade, but I would say it is on par with average AA grade. For $80? Yea, I'll take it.

Moving on to the build quality of the rod. It gets a solid "A". There are a few guide raps that aren't absolutely perfect and you'd never notice them unless you slowly inspected each one and took your time (as I did). But my purpose was for an accurate review, and not to criticize the craftsmanship. The rod fits together and locks up tight as a drum. You will have no issues with it coming apart while casting and reeling in that monster (that got away).

Rod guides are in line and all inserts are smooth as can be. There is no pitting or excess glue from the manufacturing process.

I do wish there was some sort of rubber/plastic/dense foam butt cap on the rod. The cork just kind of stops and is cut off flush. Make sure to seal that part too with some U-40.

Reel seats are solid and lock up well on the reel. For my testing purposes I used the reel I will be fishing on this rod; a Penn Battle II 3500. Weight and balance are on par with a rod of this price and a graphite blank of this tonnage.

I would say any reel size over 3500 would start to be a bit too unbalanced. This is an inshore rod after all. The action is on the stiffer side, with a decent tip. There are no issues hooking into 30lb reds, agressive pompano, strong snook, and sea trout. I'm pretty confident you could land a good size tarpon if your reel has a decent carbon drag.

The travel tube is outstanding. Looks to be made of heavy nylon or a medium weight cordura-type material. The zipper is smooth and functions perfectly. There is a heavy-guage anti-crush solid tube inside that is lined with nylon to protect from scratches. Foam in the top of the lid protects the rod tip when the three pieces bounce around during transport.

I'm fairly confident that I could fit another travel rod in this tube along with the Silver Hook 3-piece rod.

For $80 you will be making a good investment. I'm really glad Tackledirect is offering this rod and will probably end up buying a second one this year.

Very impressed
Bought a couple of these for an upcoming trip to SW Florida. The fit and finish are very good and as soon as I put my 3000 sized shimano's on them I knew I had winner for our trip. Can't wait to fish them but so far very impressed.
ProsComes with nice rod tube large enough to hold a second rod. Guides and reel seat are quality. Nice feel and finish.
ConsFirst one I ordered had a blemish from production however not really a con since Tackle Direct replaced it promptly and made the process of returning it VERY easy.

Excellent travel pole
Came in a great travel case that lets you carry it on the plane instead of checking it as special baggage. Fished off the shore with it and it cast like a one piece rod. Good action. Excellent travel pole.
