Bought this as a birthday gift for my father. He was very happy with it and has used it multiple times.
At this price point you're getting a darn nice rod, well made and superb finish. Case is perfectly sized, not a generic size, so travel will be optimized
Best trout rod and reel.Easy to carry and or back.
After breaking and losing more expensive rods, I figured I would give this a try. I use it for brook trout on small PA streams. It works so well I bought another one as a backup. Being that this one is relatively inexpensive, I'm not afraid to use it and put it through its paces. More expensive rods I'm a little weary with because I don't want to break them, so this is a liberating rod to use!Bottom line: the fish don't care how expensive a rod is, and neither should you. Fly fishing does not need to be expensive.This packs up into a small tube that's roughly 2' long. I like a four piece rod better than a two, the reason being than the tube is way shorter. The tube has a spot for a business card on the outside, I write my name and address on a business card and leave it in there for when I lose it. The case is nice, sturdy, has a sling that I can attach to my backpacks to keep branches from pulling it out.Love this rod.Edit: still using this rod, still love it.
A bit short in length but ok
