Rod is lightweight, nice looking and very portable when traveling. It is a little more than a foot when folded. Casting was smooth and easy. Price is reasonable.
I bought just the pole. The quality is outstanding, I have tried it in lake and rivers and it's very easy to handle. I attached a reel very easily. I like the telescoping feature as I usually do hikes, so it's easy to storage in my back pack. It's ready to go within a few minutes... For my needs it's a 100% recommendable!.
Great travel rod. This rod travels small and deploys quick. The reel pairs great with 12 lbs mono. Great from bass and pan fishing.
