Eagle Claw Pack-It Spin/Fly Rod
Rod quality extremely poor
I purchased this rod to keep in my car in case I saw a fishing opportunity while on the road. The rod assembly quality was very poor, the first hard cast and I was casting the rod end along with the lure.

Good rod so far
Just got this rod and have only been able to use it once, but so far it is great. Small and lightweight so great for backpacking. Good feel, and breaks down / puts together easily. Just wish it came with some clips to hold it broken down so I don't have to use wire ties.

Nice, if you are careful
I got this for backpacking. It is a great size and very light weight. Fit nicely on the side of my 60L pack. I used it for spin casting for a few hours and here are my observations:
The pole is light duty and fairly sensitive. Construction is pretty good but I had some problems. Repeated casting caused the top section of the pole to losen up. Once it went flying into the lake, but fortunately, I was able to reel it in with the lure and line. After I really jammed it in there good, as tight as I could, it seemed to stay put. A more troubling problem was the pole started separating at the handle, where it was not supposed to. I had to hold onto it when I casted so it wouldn't come out of the handle. I used some glue on it when I got home and I think it is good to go. Aside from the strange construction/quality issues, it is a good backpacking pole.
