Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Graphite Pack Spinning Rod
Stays together, feels tough. Still getting use to it though, haven't been able to set the hook easily on bigger fish. Nice Feel and look

perfect light tackle/travel set-up
flew this rod out to montana for some convenient trout fishing..paired it up with 4 lb flouro and a float rig...super fun for pan-sized and bigger trout...outfished all the "purist" fly-fishers easily...catch and release only..use barbless hooks

Very nice 3 piece light travel rod
The ML56LS-3PC is a very nice rod to fish with, the three section design flexes smoothly enough and is more sensitive than one might suspect. Packs short enough for easy air travel, backpacking, etc. I don't find it to be limber enough to really warrant using 2 lb test, but great with 4 lbs to 8 lbs test fishing spinners for trout, mini jigs for panfish, and finesse soft plastics for bass. It is a tip heavy rod in terms of weight balance.

Fairly good travel rod
I purchased this rod to take in my suitcase when traveling. I have used it twice now and am satisfied. It is definately made very well. I have no issues with its quality. It has three pieces that are longer than I had planned on. It will only fit in my largest suitcase. It is also a bit lighter action than I was hoping for. I use mostly soft plastics and 1/8 oz jig heads. The rod flexes more during the cast than I would like and takes a little getting used to. Overall good quality lite spinning travel rod.
