Purchased one of these travel rods to pair with a Shimano IX4000R spinning reel for a Florida Keys trip. The rod handled well and landed some hard hitting Jack's. My son and I found a school near a bridge and the rod landed consecutive Jack's of various sizes! They gave the rod a beating and it held up. Also, the sections of the rod never separated. I was impressed with the rod. We loaded 20lb braid and 20lb floro top shot that was smooth casting for the rod. This was our light rig and we used it the most. It's a fun rod!
Pros
  • Handles well
  • Cork grips and sleek black rod look cool
  • Light
  • Rod stays fixed when properly constructed
Cons
  • Travel tube is a few inches longer than the rod after its broken down in the 3 sections. If your planning on packing it within checked luggage to avoid carry-on, you will need a suit case or travel bag 30" or longer in length.... food for thought.

Exactly what I needed

Upcoming trip to Eleuthera required a new rod, exactly what I needed. Was so nice it inspired me to get a new reel as I couldn’t put an old reel on such a nice rod. Thank you!

I am pleased with this rod. The case is solid and the components of the rod are of good quality. I paired it with a Daiwa Legalis 4000 C and it felt balanced and cast well off the reefs and rocks pitching lures in Kauai. The rod handled a 4ft Trumpet fish with no problem. Make sure the pieces of the rod are firmly in place before casting. This is true for any rod that comes in sections. I will take this rod with me next time I travel to Florida and put it through the paces there. For inshore fishing it works.
Pros
  • Portable and can handle inshore fish. Light. Good case.
Cons
  • Take care to ensure the sections are firmly in place.

Silver Hook Medium Heavy Travel Rod
August 2, 2021
Overall great rod for the money. The guides are much more reinforced than on the medium power rod for a more durable travel rod. Will be great for any saltwater or freshwater occasion.

I purchased 2 of the MH rods for trips to Florida. They have held up well for several trips. I put both rods in one tube. They stow easily in the overhead.

Travel spinning rod

Bought the med heavy version last year to travel to Brazil fishin the Amazon for peacock bass. Used a shimano reel with #65 braid. Caught 13 lb first day on this rod and it handled it great. Light weight. Easy to assemble and use. Caught it on sale but is as good as more expensive rods I ordered the medium so I have both models

Love this rod
November 6, 2020
Rod casts great. It casts much better than the two piece rod I have. Don’t let the description of it being a travel rod influence you. I bring two rods with me when I fish. I basically use the 7 foot for fishing in the wash with lighter baits. It does an excellent job. This purchase far exceeded my expectations.
Pros
  • Casts great

Pros
  • Lightweight, easy to transport, and a great price.
Cons
  • None

Solid rod

This is my first travel rod and so far it's been a solid bargain for the price. Not to mention the rod tube is big and sturdy enough that you could easily put another rod in it.
Pros
  • Price, sturdy case, solid
