Hi John,

Have a look at the Shimano Exage travel rods, there are 2 spin rods £55 and £60.
I think that they are just what you want.

Cheers

Hi - Have a look on E-bay. It won't be the best rod in the world but more than suffice for holiday use. A telescopic spinning rod will go for between £5 and £20 and will catch very sizeable fish! (My record was a 24 lb tuna on a light telescopic rod!) :D

Hi John,

Save yourself some money and stick with your Abu, I use my Mag for spinning and it's 1st class.

Cheers
