Rated 5 out of 5 by jojofrombrooklyn great travel rod purchased a 3-pc travel rod - conventional. great light tackle rod, very sensitive. great for bottom fishing too, but dont try to bring up a goliath grooper or 80lb tarpon as you might break the rod. again great light tackle rod. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Aroman Can't argue with results This was my second purchase of an Offshore Travel rod. So far we have caught a 96 lb halibut on the medium weight and just returned from Costa Rica where we caught several 100 lb plus sailfish, a dozen 20 lb+ red snapper and two 40 lb+ Pacific snook on the heavy weight. Heading back to Alaska to test these lil guys some more. April 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by crtarpon Good Rod Bought the medium casting rod and used it to throw 5/8 oz rapalas at cruising jacks and 2 oz jigs at large rolling tarpon in Mexico. One jack was really big and with a heavy braided line on the reel I kind of expected the rod to break. Nope. On the tarpon, I don't know that this rod had enough guts to stick them well enough. I hooked three and lost all of them. They were about 100#, 80#, and maybe 70#. I feel like if the weight on the jig would've moved away from the mouth in the jumps that they may have stayed buttoned, but not sure. Overall a very good rod--especially for a 3 piece. June 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gcatchesfish Cool rod I bought the med action rod for my son...sorry, I'm keeping it. It is well built, looks and feels great. I will be using it to cast swimbaits to stripers and jig for Ling Cod. Has a nice action, plenty of backbone and is light weight. Great price. Just what he wanted (hehehe). I guess I will have to buy another one for him. April 27, 2012

Details:Any reason not to go with Heavy action casting rod? Any recommendation on reels.
A:go for it! its a perfect yak or light boat rod!
abu ambassador 5500/6500 (regular retrieve/high speed) if you are willing to rinse daily or Revo if you want to spend more for bigger drag (maby good in carib) and more capacity (also maby good, though 6500 holds 300 yds of 30# braid)
Best kayak rod I have found in 10+ years looking.
Details:Will it fit in a carry on to meet airline regulations with out an extra baggage charge?
A:I carried it on Aeromexico with no trouble. Fits in overhead bins, beside your seat, etc.
A:It fits cross-wise in my 30" suitcase. It won't fit in my wheeled carry-on. Could probably just carry the tube on by itself. Other people have.
A:The case is 30", I put mine in a duffel without trouble.
A:No, it won't. Don't understand the other answer? I own 2 of these rods, and travel a lot. LOL
Great rod. Great feel for a baitcasting travel rod.....Unfortunately,.. it measures 32" in the case & 30" without the case..... Most carry on luggage maxes at 22x14x11 The longest thing you put in it would be a little over 28&1/4 inches....
Just to make sure,... tried to put the rod (in the case) in 3 different, max legal limit carry on's,... wouldn't fit in any of them.
If you can smuggle on a 25" suitcase, the rod (without the case) should just fit.... (don't have a 25" to try it) but it would have to go diagonally across the suitcase and from the bottom to the top. Everything else would have to be packed around it...
