    Default Travelling rod

    Anyone out there have experience with a 8 piece or more travelling rod.
    I am looking for a 5wt that will pack up ultra small for travelling.
    Someone mentioned a Stealth deep red?

    Devlin, any idea of price for this baby?
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Scierra, also brought in by OptiMax has a 5Pce called the MPA (Modern Progressive Action) which is an awesome rod. It's on par if not better ito looks, finishing and blank quality with Sage or any of the 'expensive' rods I've seen.

    They also have a EDP flavour which is in 5Pce config but has a slower action.

    Very nice rods, very small and they pack away into a tiny little rod tube which will fit into even a moderate attache case.

    My reasons for not buying one of them after casting them all:

    1) I don't don't feel right with taking such a good looking rod out on the Vaal, which is where I spend 99.999% of my fishing time.

    and

    2) TFO 10' 5WT 4Pce Professional Series baby YEAH !

    As the wise man said and I quote " He who has said nothing is still thinking"
    It will take a lot to beat my influence as I'm still thinking......
