About Me:
Looked Great. Delivery took an extra 2 days. Straight out of the box the very end section got stuck and will not go back in, very frustrating and inconvenient. if i cast it will only get tighter. Good idea, not well built. If it would slide back in i would rate higher.

Pros: lite, small

Cons: feels very cheap

Great for taking along when you don't have space to take a regular pole. Tip was too light for the lures I was using, so I modified the rod by cutting the last section off & gluing a tip guide to the 2nd section. Really beefed up the action to what I wanted. Have used to catch many bass up to 5# & it worked great!

Pros: none

Cons: none

Best Uses: Good back-up FW pole

I have used a Telescopic Shakespeare Wonderod Fishing Rod for years. I keep it under the back seat of my CJ5 Jeep and have caught more fish on it with a little Garcia Mitchell 308 spinning reel than I can ever count. The Wonderod is no loner in production. Well I bought one of these Telescopic Travel Mates for my Wife, wow, great medium action, she loves it. Most telescopic poles are clumsy and stiff, not this one. It fishes like a one or 2 piece pole. You'll love it!

Pros: Accurate Casting, Sensitive, Durable, Easy To Transport, Good Tip Action, Flexible

Cons: none

Best Uses: Small Fish, River Fishing
