Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Graphite Pack Spinning Rod
Excellent little rod!
I purchased the Bass Pro Micro-Lite ML56LS-3 (with the Pflueger 6920) for an upcoming 50 miler hiking trip. Testing the setup yesterday, I simply have to say that the pairing is likely the best in its class that I've used. The panfish and smallmouth we caught were a blast to hook and land. For the price, the tip was both exceptionally sensitive and responsive.
Simply put: It's a great little rod. (My dad's heading out tomorrow to buy himself an identical setup.)

Great travel rod
With closet space a premium in NYC, this travel rod fits just about anywhere. I took this rod up to Maine for some lake fishing and it handled superbly. I have no doubt that this rod could handle beyond its ratings. It has great action and feel for a four piece. Transporting it as carry on luggage was a breeze. It comes with a basic simple plastic sock and tube that isn't the most roadworthy, but the rod is an absolute bargain. I am definitely taking this with me whenever I travel.

I somehow expected the package to be a little more packable, but aside from that the rod performs well and is a good value for the price. Nice action. Being three piece makes the line guide alignment a bit of a pain, but that should be expected. Handle and reel seat is a solid design. A little more description of the case and break-down size would have been nice. On-line just gives a very general "case and sleeve included" comment. Frankly the "hard" case is next to nothing.

Great travel rod
I have used this rod twice since it arrived 2 weeks ago for walleye and was very impressed with its sensitivity and power. I have 4 St. Croix rods that cost 2 to 3 times more and I would rate it very close to them as a great substitute when I need the small size of a travel rod. I mainly bought it to take to Alaska this summer for trout steams only accesable by orv. Very nice for the price. The rod tube is some what limited to protecting it but the price is right on.
