Daiwa Presso Ultralight Travel Rod
by Stan Greenberg -
I highly recommend this rod; The rod is very light and solid and with Daiwa BG Spinning Reel nicely balanced. The feel is perfect, the sensitivity is perfect, and plenty of back bone for the ultralight rod and quality rod in this price range. The workmanship is outstanding with all attention paid to small details. Japanese quality design. Bravo Daiwa!
Best pack rod
An amazing ultralight rod and a superb travel rod. perfect for those hard to reach spot or exploring to find the perfect spot.
I Would Buy This Again
This 5’6” “travel” rod casts farther than my 7 ft two piece rods. It is the rod I choose for casting small baits a long way. I use 3 lb. test on a shallow spool ultralight Daiwa Revros (JDM version for $80). The only negative: the cork handle is cheap and starts to crumble a bit after just 6 months. Put some Cork Seal on it from the start to protect the handle. But I love it a much, I’m going to buy another, maybe try a longer two-piece version.
Best "Budget" Ultralight
I have the 5'6" UL, paired with a JDM Revros Super Shallow spool bought from a Japanese website. For $160, I have the UL setup of my dreams. This little rod can cast farther than any other rod I own, and the lure rating of 1/32 to 1/4 oz is accurate and truthful. With 3 lb test line, it handles better than I ever expected. And of course, you can pack it in a carry-on bag or a small backpack.
