    And Sold!

    They arnt a bad rod just a soft in the tip and butt section for real distance work ( Good for the 100 g )
    I intend to use it as a bit of a beater rod and will take a inch or three off the tip to stiffen it a bit
    The posidon actully is a better rod imho its just not getting used enought as I perefer two peice rods over three .

    I didn’t see anything about it being designed for spinning reels.

    Should be grateful I did not throw on a bid of $151 to prevent any buy nows from occurring. :P

    I did that once and ended up owning something I did not really want :(

    Its a fair price I will agree :D
    Good to get it for that price might have to stick the penn 535 that I paid $50 aussie for on it LOL

    I have seen a few crazy low buy nows over the years. When I do I normally throw on a bid just to get the auction started and in the process earned the sellers quite a bit of extra money.

    The reel was in a big box of cheapy fixed spool reels with a ” prices as marked” sign on it the reel had no price on it so I asked the guy behind the counter .He said $50 I said Sold.
    The box still had the $299 price on it

    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 :roll:

    edit: a 2 or 4 piece shorter rod would be smarter….

    The Veals “SureTravel” Beach rod does look promising. $210NZD before postage mmmmm

    Pretty sure I have read a uk mag that had a test on that rod… worked ok for them nothing extra special but it fitted into a suitcase !

    This website seemed to like it

    But I never truly trust a web review from a random site.

    Just get a cheap telescopic one.

    They are nasty. A big Fiordland Moki would tear one to bits.

    On the topic of nasty telescopic rods, a few years back I purchased a cheap okuma telescopic rod on Trademe… A few weeks back while down the sounds I broke one of my Kayak rods in half, so the next day I took the telescopic rod out…. It was rather soft to fish…… Then I hooked a couta, the front section or so was almost a C, I thought it was going to bend back in on itself. Most crazy rod I ever used.

    Still managed to land the coutta.

    I’ve seen a lot of telescopic rods used generally by asians at the Pier. One I saw looked to be 19 or 20ft and was so thin the whole thing just bent over when under any load. I’m sure there’s some higher quality ones around though.
