I actually need a 6 or 8 piece OH rod to take tramping, one advantage of the OH reels is they are more compact so fits nicer in the bottom of a pack. Dunno if I would ever find one.
Would be used while tramping in fiordland or Stewart island. That combined with one of my fly rods would take up half of my pack
edit: a 2 or 4 piece shorter rod would be smarter….
