I have been on the look out for some inexpensive mico ultralight rods, one spinning and one casting for the tiny reels I now have. These will be designated life in the P'up. I have run across Shakespeare's "Travel Mate" Telescopic Rods that can be bought for less than $15 each. Has anyone any experiance with the "Camping / Hiking" telescopic rods? You know, the ones that collapse down into the handle. I've always thought they were a hoax and not intended for real fisherman. Kinda like the Ronco Pocket Fisherman AS SEEN ON T.V.! from the '70s. But the reviews on them aren't too bad, study, durable, maybe a little heavy on the action but that only makes sense seing how it has 5 sections in a 4' 6" lenth. Best part is they are only 13-1/2" when collapsed. I can stash these with the tiny reels and a small pocket tacklebox just about anywhere in the P'up. That way when we camp next to a lake (usually) I can be ready anytime. Thoughts / experiance anyone?
