    Great product but avoid flinging open., June 13, 2016

    Rod is light and fits in a backpack nicely. When i got the rod i fished it same day. While i had no luck fishing it i did get to note that it casts very well and feels great. The tip has plenty of flex whilst the base is nice and rigid. When i showed my wife the product after i went fishing. I opened it like a child would open a toy light saber. My mistake as the tip was now stuck in the segment below it and i could not get it closed and after i tried finess for some time eventually i switched to brute force and broke the tip. Now i have two unuseable segments which are still stuck together. I dont blame this on the product i blame this on mishandling by myself. I will be purchasing another rod and seeing if there’s any way i can get two replacement segments and eyelets to put the one i already have back in service.

    Good concept but bad quality product, October 20, 2016

    The first problem I had with it is there is no soft grip on it. Typically, fishing rods have either a rubber or cork grip below where the reel attaches. But not this one. It’s just fiberglass or carbon fiber material. So I bought a golf club grip to put on it and that seemed to work pretty well.

    I finally got to try out this new fishing rod. The first day of fishing didn’t end well for it. My hook got snagged and as I was trying to get it free, the rod snapped off. I’ve had a number of fishing rods over the years and I’ve never broken one before so I have to believe that the people who designed this had no idea what they were doing.

    Having said all that, it’s a great concept to have the sections of the rod slip inside each other so it collapses down to a very portable unit. One oddity with that is the handle area is much longer than a normal rod. I understand how that happened, given the way this thing is put together. But that adds to my suspicion that the designers have never actually used a fishing rod.

    I bought and tried this pole being a skeptic about it. I thought it might be cheap and break after a few uses. It has been great rod and has worked well for my many fishing trips both from the bank, boat and kayak. This rod is tough enough to pull my kayak along when I get the occasional lure hung in a tree. I use braided line so I purposefully put it to the test my pulling myself over to the tree or bank with the rod. I would buy this rod again in different sizes just to have it on hand. The smallest version is a little heavier than what you might think so if you are buying a pole for an ultralight situation you might consider another rod. If you want a good rod to use in the kayak or to throw in the trunk of you car this is not a bad pole to own. I think I got better than what I paid for.
