This is a cracking five-piece travel rod with sections measuring around 60cm, making it ideal for travelling.
It is rated to cast 90-160g and built around a high modulus carbon blank with an exceptional quality finish and fittings to match. The German technology used in its design is superb and this rod won’t lose any performance as your fishing travels take you further afield.
The neat screw winch fitting is saltwater resistant, as are the SiC guides, while the sectioned, Duplon handgrips offer fantastic comfort.
Sportex is so confident that this rod will stand up to the test of anglers travelling to many venues, it even gives you a 10-year blank guarantee. The outfit is supplied with its very own travel tube for total protection.
