About Me:
This is a nice little pole. It is not top of the line, but that's not what you're buying. It comes with a nice Shakespeare spinning reel that will be more than adequate to handle what you would use this pole for. The telescopic rod works well and seems fairly durable. It compacts into a nice carrying case for safety but does not require the case for transport. You do need to remove the reel to store it in the case, but this takes only seconds and is something most avid fisherman should be used to by now. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. This will be a great little rod for hiking and backpacking trips. And for the price, you can't beat it.

Pros: compact, sturdy, price is right

Cons:

I bought two of these little rigs so that my wife and I could easily strap them to our kayaks. These are perfect for fishing the local mountain rivers and lake backwaters here in Arkansas. I just couldn't see trying to carry an 6 or 7 foot rod on my kayak so these fit the bill perfectly. They seem to be built sturdy and the case keeps them from getting hung up on anything. The only reason I did not rate this a "5" is because you have to dismantle the reel from the rod it to fit it back in the case. Just remember, this rig is for smaller species of fish. The reel casts smoothly and the shorter rod is great for castiing lures up under low hanging trees, etc. Now, can't wait until the weather warms up!


Pros: Compact, Smooth

Cons: Have to disassemble to put back in case

Best Uses: Backpacking, Kayaking, Traveling for small species fish
