great fishing rod for traveling

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

i bought the rod to travel to florida for fishing in the gulf. the rod comes with a hard plastic guard for the eyes when the rod is collapsed a good idea for traveling in a suit case . i would say the rod has a heavy rating, it is stiff like a pole with just a little flex on the tip of the rod. so the rod would be good for bigger fish. the rod eyes have 4 post going to the pole from the eye, which is amazing most poles only have one post from the pole to the eye. so it would be hard to bend one of these eyes on this rod. the eyes do have ceramic inserts another super feature for the price of this rod. so you can use braided line on the pole. only small complaint i have is the reel holders on the pole are plastic maybe be a little weak, especially if you use a bigger reel, i am planning to put some black wire ties around the reel and the reel holders on the pole to help the holders on the pole a little . for the price the rod is well worth it. i would buy another one if needed.

This is a good quality rod, I was surprised at how stiff it is. It is a medium/heavy action leaning more toward heavy and would be good for larger fish such as Bass / Pike (although a bit light for serious pike fishing). If you're looking for a ultra-light or light action telescoping rod, go with one of the Shakespeare travel rods, they seem to be on the light side of their specified action, this rod seems stiffer/heavier than the specified action. When completely collapsed it is still quite long, but obviously a heck of a lot shorter than carrying around a regular fishing rod. This rod has one more eyelet than it has telescoping sections. So the second-to-last line guide is freely floating and must be snugged down into position along the final section of rod blank after that section is extended...this appears to work fine, but I was surprised as other telescoping rods I've had had each line guide affixed to one section of the rod. Haven't fished with it yet, but seems very well built and similar to a $70 telescoping rod that I ordered and returned from a different company.

I bought this rod to replace a south bend eclipse rod (cheap, broke just trying to extend the rod) this one seems a lot stronger, great for trout or small fish, it's a mediem action, 6-12 lbs. test. for the price it's a good rod. stay away from the eclipse rod.

It's not easy to find a nice telescoping rod, but this one is well made, reasonably priced, and fills a need to make the rod as transportable as possible. the site to store free shipping is very convenient. Thumbs up all around!

I am very pleased with the quality and value of this telescopic South Bend spincast rod. I needed a spinning outfit I can transport on my motorcycle and this fits the bill perfectly! Very well made too.
