Ratings & Reviews
Nice Inshore Travel Rod
I got the Nomad with the Medium and Medium-Heavy tip sections mostly for fishing off of the beach in the Gulf of Mexico. I've thrown lures weighing from 5/8 ounce to 1-1/4 ounce with it. Occasionally, the sections need to be re-tightened, but the ferrules work reasonably well. I tend to put a lot of lateral (i.e., sideways and twisting) strain on spinning rods, especially when walking a lure, so I reinforce the connections between the sections with painter's tape after I assemble it. I always rinse the saltwater off of it after use and have seen no corrosion after a few years of use. Having two tip sections is nice. I broke the Medium tip after using it to catch a large blue crab for breakfast one morning. The crab must've crushed the blank, because it snapped shortly after. My only complaint is its weight; it's on the heavy side for a spinning rod.
