Bass Pro Shops Micro Lite Graphite Pack Spinning Rod
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 bought this rod to pack into the back country. It packed well in my back pack and helped me catch enough Trout to eat well each night. I had buddies with me who had other "pack rods" but none of them could stack up against the Micro lite rod. Some of the guys wanted details on how they could get one of their own..............

Excellent Lightweight Pack Rod
I have used this rod for several years fishing in Canada. The rod has excellent feel for walleye fishing as well as smallmough fishing. I matched it with a Shimano 1000 rear drag spinning reeel. I have c aught several large northern on the rod as well when fishing for smallmouth. The largest was a 39" northern with 6 pound test. It did put the rod to the test and was an absolute blast.

No complaints here
this has to be one of the best poles i have had. granted i do have a shimano reel on it to help things out. The sensitivity in this pole is awesome, you can drag the bottom and pretty much feel everthing that you are hitting. also dont be weary about the light action rods not performing when it comes to bass i have reeled in at least a handful of keepers with no problems. the only downfall is the "Case" that it comes in, not much of a case, more like a plastic tube.
