I highly rate my Mike Ladles 4surespin. At just under 900mm (approx 3ft) packaged it fits nicely into your suitcase. Combined witha Shimano Stradic 4000GTM-RA or a Shimano 5000GTE-B and 20lb Berkley braid its the muts. I don't think that V8 Rob will mind posting his pictures to show what this rod is capable off. They really blew my mind, and i thought a 6lb pollack tested the rod!
The only thing with the Mike Ladle/ Greys rods are the fact they are 4 piece and are around 30" when packed. Slightly too big for many suitcases, but there again I always take mine on as hand luggage if flying. I dont like the idea of them being thrown in the main hold. Rod and reels go as hand luggage :bounce:
