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 Pack Spinning Rod
I bought this and the casting pack rod for a trip I made to Wisconsin. Both of these rods lived up to my expectations. I now use this rod all the time for my finesse fishing. It really performs well for me and you can't beat the price. Great rod, and I highly recommend it as a pack rod or for something to keep in the trunk just in case you come across a body of water that's just beggin' to be fished.

This rod performs wonderful. I used it on the Ohio River and it held up great. The Ohio River is a perfect test for any rod due to excessive snags, current, and large fish. I couldn't tell that this rod was portable at all. It performed as well as my other 6'6" rods!

I have the 4pc rod with a micro reel (item # MLE25F) and the whole setup including the spool full of line is just under 12oz. I didn't measure the reel separately, but it is listed at 5oz, so the 4pc rod is probably somewhere around 7oz.
my 6' light rod rated for 2-8lb test snapped below bottom eyelet while i was fighting a muskie .... and i had 6 lb mono on. You can try it, but don't be surprised if it breaks in the middle of a fight.
I would go with the Pflueger 4410U or 6720X.Great reels to compliment the rod at affordable prices.the first is a closed face spinner.(underspinner) and the other is the president series for about 50 bucks.the underspinner is about 25 dollars.for the additional $25 the president boasts 5 ball bearings.
