A telescopic fishing rod can be really useful because it will easily fold away for storage and transportation. This one has three segments for the top and there are spare segments so that you can replace them if you need to. The rod is of good quality and made of carbon fibre with internal reinforcing which adds strength and rigidity to the rod. There is increased wall thickness and joint thickness on all sections to eliminate potential stress points. There are three different types to choose from two medium action rods and one fast action which is stiffer with an aluminium alloy top plug and bottom screw cap.
