I thought that I would get some opinions on using a pack rod versus a telescopic rod. A little background: I am going to the Virgin Islands next month and was planning on bringing my fishing gear to do a little saltwater fishing. While traveling, I usually try to rent a rod and reel, but I am not able to this time. I have multiple layovers and will be using public transportation so I don’t want to bring my good 2 piece rods in a case. I was looking at getting either a 6’6” Ugly Stik 4 piece pack rod or a 9’ Sougayilang telescopic rod. I plan on fishing off piers, jetties, and rocky areas. Both rods have good reviews but I wanted to see if anyone had experience with either if these rods or had any recommendations. Thanks.
