How I modded this rod https://youtu.be/e_JLQbLAulY
If you’ve researched spinning travel rods online, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen this one. Lots of positive reviews and affordably priced on Amazon and eBay.
PROs: Only $35 for the 8’10”! Lightweight, fairly sensitive, true out of the box. Good for whipping 1 oz or lighter swim baits, or chunking 2 oz or lighter weights. And durable! Like, crazy durable. I’ve snagged, dunked, dropped, banged, and fumbled this rod a few times over and it’s not showing any signs of failure.
CONs: The action is bit too Moderate, I wish it came in a Fast model. I wish the lower 2 ring guides were twice the size, would provide optimal line lay and less rod vibration when reeling quick. I wish the handle butt was a tad longer or end-weighted as the rod is unbalanced/top heavy even with a 16 oz reel. I extra wish that the freely spinning metallic collar(?) on the fore grip was replaced with proper foam to match the handle. That collar can become a nuisance.
THE VERDICT: It’s OK believe the hype … this rod is legit! For the price and performance, it’s tough to beat. I carry it as a secondary rod when surf fishing locally and as my primary rod while traveling.
Paired mine with a Penn SSV3500 and 15 lb Berkley Fireline. Nicely balanced, aesthetically pleasing, and dunk-proof combo.
