Hi Hawkeye,

I would agree to Bobby that the 8 Section telescopic rod would be better for travelling, but -same as him- I still would prefer the 6 section rod as it should have a more balanced action and as it should be stronger and more resistable against breakage.

I would even go further and my favourite would be the pictured Shimano EXAGE STC 210. At a length of 2.10 m/10-30gr CW it got only 4 sections. The transport length is 57 cm when packed loose and 66 cm when you use the Shimano rod tube which is coming together with this item. In my opinion still very much OK for all kinds of travelling.

The shorter the transport length/number of section... the bigger the compromise in regards of strenth and a well balanced rod action.

Opposite to Bobby I wouldn't care too much for the number of guides -as long as the rod is decently guided...these Shimanos are- as I would anyhow use a fixed spool spinning reel for such a light rod. Spincaster multipliers are not really common in Germany and need some practise till your able to cast small lures and other rigs well.

Thanks Bobby and Dibu !
No confusion at all, in fact you have definitely helped me in my decision making.
To cut things short I have decided to ask for the Shimano exage 240 stc - it allows 2 lengths at 8 and 9 feet and can cast upto 45 gms and has a transport length of 56 cms .... that should fit in a regular bag during air travel... and I shouldn't be caught short of power in case I hook a larger fish.

Hi Apoo,

Go for the multi section travel rod instead of the tele.
Teles have a bad habit of getting their sections twisted up when you apply sidestrain on a fish, rings go out of alignment and the damn thing squats on itself at the most critical time, especially whan you have the tip high to land the fish.
Go for the small Exage- I used a friends' last season, landed a 34lb true golden (putitora) after a hectic 30min tussle (on a small gold-green mackerel Magnum by Rapala) in murky water (month of May, flash rain, clearing water, great fun with artificials) with no probs but much anxiety. Can't say how to get your hnds on one, tho'. Regulars may advise...

Cheers,
V.

Ordering them by mail from UK is possible but not at all cost effective. The exage travel rods cost around 50 UK pounds but they charge 90 UK pounds for shipping to india !!! Best is to have someone get them over.

I will let the pictures do the talking.

The parcel consisted of the following:

1) 7' 2-piece rod.
2) Shimano Baitrunner Long Cast.
3) Plano 4700 tackle box.

Items were sent via air not surface mail and the postage came to GBP 51.15 as can be seen on the top right hand corner of the customs declaration form stuck to the box.

An Exage rod tube shouldn't cost more than 20 odd quid. Failing which you can buy it from TFG who charge approximately Rs.2000.00

If seven people paid me £50 each to bring a rod for them, that would pay my entire airfare!!!

50 quid postage is still a no no.
My exage will hopefully arrive in a couple of weeks thanks to visiting in-laws. Who knows, maybe they could be generous too... and I could claim a christmas gift :lol:

especially if you spool it with superbraid for backing, topped off with a hunner yards of trilene Big Game. Good drag on it, too. Adjusts predictably in the course of a tussle.

Vedan, Whats 'Backing' and 'topping off?'
100 yards of braid loaded first onto the reel, then mono? Didnt know such combo's were in use. Whats the logic? sorry, newbie qn!!

Jefe,

I use the mono+braid formula for all my pahari river needs. For spinning big snowfeds like the Ganga, I use a 25lb mono mainline backed with 150 m of 60lb superbraid (Fireline). My 8000 GTX Biomaster swallows around 180m of Trilene Big Game over 150 of Fireline. That's a lot more line than the 230 of 25 it usually takes.
The monofilament is for fighting and all your casting needs and backing to pull it all in, especially if you have a long running fish.
Using superbraid has several advantages-
- on eggbeater reels, it prevents mono compaction and associated damage to the spool (wind around 2 meters of mono around your finger and you'll know what I mean).
- you can pack in so much more line without investing in a bigger reel
- with mono at the front (100 m or whatever you topped up), you can fish reasonably rough water (its more abrasion resistant and shock absorbent)

On the 25 mono backed with 60lb braid, when I do have a really long line out, say, when drifting deadbait for mahseer, I don't need to worry about whether the unused coils of mono will take the strain or not. Even with a fish on a long way out, the mono acts as a shock absorber and the braid does the bullying.

Cheers,

V.
