Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by It's Ok 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. September 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Easy & Effective 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. May 26, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor product 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. November 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great travel pole Bought this for my bug out bag. Stores away great. Case it comes in is too big for my needs. July 24, 2012

I am looking for a telescopic rod to use for fly fishing some small streams in my area. Will this work?

A: 
I have two telescopic rods I take when camping. Neither is terribly sensitive--kind of stiff--and neither cast very well. However, it DOES let you fish where you might not and they are very good for climbing along banks and trails where brush could otherwise tangle your rod/line. I would doubt that this rod would be suitable for fly fishing.... You might like the whippy ultralight rod/reel combo, which is more like the flex of a fly rod.

A: 
It all depends on what you are fishing for and if you are fishing a 1,2,3 or more piece rod. I like a rod that can breakdown down for ease of storage. If you are going after huge fish in saltwater, a one piece rod is a must. For fresh water it is not so critical If you check your ferrules. Catch Sockeye in Alaska with a loose ferrule and you get a broken rod. Longer rods usually have more flex so the rod is doing the work. Longer rods are better for casting because of the flex. It is all relative to what you are fishing for and what you are fishing from ( bank, boat, pier, etc)

A: 
It comes with 4lb test and I have found that you dont want to go above 6lb if you want to replace the line. After all, it's meant to be a quick and easy travel rod and not a high end product.

Well I just got this reel in the rod/reel combo, and it came pre-spooled with 8lb. test mono. It will also work well with 6 lb. mono. Hope this helps!
