THEY reckon good things come in small packages and these new rods definitely fit that bill and these four-piece rods are designed to be compact enough to stow in the boot of a car or to be easily transported if you’re travelling by bus or bicycle. There are four rods in the range – a 13ft Match, 11ft Pellet Waggler, and 11ft and 12ft feeders. The longest 13ft rod spans 1.04m (41in) when broken down. For families travelling in a car where space is tight, they’re ideal. You can also buy a special EXP compact sleeve capable of storing ‘made-up’ rods with reels attached. The easy-to-carry, three-compartment, zipup sleeve will hold three rods with reels, plus others without reels, covering all your needs on any commercial, stillwater or river.
