I bought the longer one and it's great for getting through the woods without getting caught in every tree and bush. The reel casts well. I had to take a picture of it stored away so I could get it back like it was packaged. It takes a few minutes to pack and un-pack so while others are getting their lines out or hiking out I'm still working on the gear. I hooked into a 10" bass and the top 2 sections broke off. I'm still looking for a good travel rod.

It only stores in its case in left hand mode. I found this a bit of a bother. I tossed this unit into my backpack and went for a hike in Banff National Park. I found a lake. I set it up...my buddies chuckled...I tossed in a hook and pulled out fish. Nice action on the reel...no problem with 3 or 4 pounders using the provided line. Neat little piece of gear. I don't think it will take much of a beating... so don't beat it up! If I could get a good price for bulk purchase, I would get some for six of my nephews, one of my nieces, and one of my brothers in law. We fish...therefore we are.

It is difficult to get the reel back into the case.
I fished with the combo about 1 hour, the first time the line became caught on the bottom and I pulled hard on the pole it broke into.

Bought this for my bug out bag. Stores away great. Case it comes in is too big for my needs.
