Fishing Rod

Post by rabbi2 » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:54 am

Anyone seen or used this?

Could be quite handy for those spur of the moment fishing forays and could be left in the boot of your car permanently, however just wondering if it justifies the cost.
Your thoughts appreciated.
Cheers
keith :D :D

Your choice Keith but i have NEVER trusted a telescopic rod and never will mate.

It might be ok but I personally would not feel confident using it B-)

bought a telescopic rod in kos a few years back,creaks a bit with anything over a pound,but still lands them.ideal in my inflatable kayak.
think they have come on a bit since then,but like you say ,ideal to throw in the boot of the motor.

Don't forget the reel is combined in the rod my thought is that it may be an ideal rod for the youngsters or for the occasional angler. All that for less than 6 packets of fags!
