Travel Rod

Post  Robbie on Tue Mar 05, 2013 8:57 am

Guys,

Looking at buying a travel rod and all the Australian stocked ones I have seen suck.

Anyone know of a good model either here or overseas?

Needs to be 4-6 piece around 6-7 ft long, ML to M. I Want to catch everything from Black Bass, Snake head, Northern Pike, Sailfish, Squid and Trout on it!!

I realise its going to be too light for some of the bigger stuff and ill get smoked often but im ok with that. Im also ok with having to use a heavy rod every so often for finesse fishing but less so than the above.

Ideas Please

hey robbie davo's tackle up the coast is having a sale on all rods upto 50% off you should give them a ring. I don't know if they stock anything in the 4-6pc range but if they do you could save a bit of money.

Robbie,
Check out the Gen Black travel rods. I have a Pinster & Drunkenmonkey and love em. Great value and great spec for Aussie conditions.

Those are actually the names of the rods Rob!

Unfortunately most of the travel ones are not out yet but I will be having a close look at them when they do.

Hi Robbie
Pfleuger make a 5 piece travel rod, but not sure if it's heavy enough for what you are chasing
I have also heard that Austackle sell a travel rod, maybe Steve from The Tackle Shop has them or has heard of them or can get one for you

Andrew,

They used to make a 5 piece travel rod called the wanderer. However I broke one of the sections and can't get a replacement it was a good rod with fuji sic guides and a nice blank but you cant get them anymore. Also it was a bit light for this trip. I think ill get a gen black when they release the rest of the travel series later in the year.
