Telescopic Rods

Postby frozenpod » Wed Jul 11, 2018 9:19 am

Are there any decent Telescopic travel rods or are they all rubbish and better to go with a 3 piece?

Are you traveling on a plane or just to throw in the back of the car?

I use the 9' Shimano Beastmaster Travel and its never let me down, trialled a few telescopic and never found one that had the same feel. From memory it was quite cheap too. I found the 9' to be quite versatile too, light spinning off the rocks, piers, etc..
