Opinion on 5 piece travel rods?

Post by Thomassssss » Sat Aug 10, 2019 5:40 pm

What’s your opinion on 5 piece travel rods? I’m in the market for a 1-3kg for trout season rod and it’d be pretty handy to be able to pack it down like that.

Was looking at a pflueger Trion as I’ve got a one piece 2-4kg that I really like.

Cheers.

There was a consensus that 3 peice rod is better

I agree, that's small enough, unless you go to telescopic

That Trion 5 piece rod, I think its similar to veritas 5 piece rod. Ita actually a 3 piece rod, but they give extra mid and tip section to mix and match.
I dont know any 5 piece rod (as one rod). I know Compleat Angler's shimano balistix travel rod is 4 piece (one rod).
