Why call them Extreme? The word “Extreme” is somewhat overused these days, so with these rods, we’ve tried to stay true to the official definition, which is (according to Webster’s Dictionary) “exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected.” We have packed every possible ultra-high-end feature into the strongest, most profoundly sensitive package, and still kept your investment under $100!
Here’s what you get: We start out with an immensely powerful yet feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall IM9 graphite blank, then wrap the butt section with a new diamond weave carbon fiber to enhance lifting power. We top the blank with virtually frictionless, mirror-polished Fuji aluminum oxide guides, and we finish the blank with the most durable clear-coat available. The grips are turned from ultra-premium-grade cork, with our exclusive PowerHump handle to aid in balance and enhance fish-turning power. The full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat puts your fingers directly on the blank so you can feel even the softest bite. The result is a fishing rod that is farthest removed from the ordinary, that is anything but the usual suspect, and that far exceeds what you expect from a rod at this price point. By definition, these rods truly are extreme!3-Piece Travel Model:
These handy (yet no less Extreme!) 3-piece rods have all the features of the 1- and 2-piece rods, but break down to a nice compact size that you can keep in your trunk or carry on a plane to avoid high baggage fees. Includes a FREE nylon rod sock and crushproof rod tube with Cordura® cover—a $19.99 value. Tube measures 31".PowerHump Handles:
Our specially contoured, premium cork handle design gives you enhanced leverage and an increased sense of confidence during the battle!Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides:
Polished to a mirror-like, friction-free finish. Extremely durable; precisely spaced for perfect line flow.Full Contact Soft Touch Reel Seat:
Lightweight, rock-solid reel seat locks your reel in place, and the blank-thru construction puts your fingers in direct contact with the blank for the utmost vibration transmission.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ram4bass Great travel rod
I have this rod in my truck at ALL times. I have fished this rod with various reels and have never been let down. The action is great, guides are good and I love the ratcheting action of the reel seat.
My only complaint is the color and cheap bag that comes with the set. The tube is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovemyFishin Great Feel!
Just purchased the Bass Pro Shop bait caster
travel rod. It comes in three pieces with a nice case. Have already put it to work catching some really nice fish. Best thing about the rod is the action. It has a fast tip and cast great. It also has a lot of backbone for fighting a large bass. Only negative is that Bass Pro Shops put the little eye where you can tie your line or hook your lure, on the side of the rod. If you are doing any flipping or pitching, your line is constantly getting caught on this eye.
I would buy this rod again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeteH This rod is solid!
I was not sure how this rod would perform in a battle with agressive fish, but I am sold. I just competed in the Griffon fishing tournament in Laguna Madre and this rod stood up to the test.
The rod performed exceptionally well and handled fish with ease. I hooked one red fish that bent this sucker in half but it hung in an landed the fish. I did not really know if the rod would stay together when I bought it, but not once did the pieces slide apart. This rod has a pretty sensitive feel too.
The case was awesome and easily carried onto a plane and placed into overhead storage. An overall outstanding rod.
