Hi, I'm in a market for another PE8 stick bait rod as a back-up. I thought having a 3-pc configuration that I can hand carry into the aircraft cabin would be advantages just in case the checked in rod tube don't show up in time. Some of the options I am considering are : 1. Zenaq Expedition 83-6 GT 2. Temple Reef Ronin 83-8 EXP 3. Ripple Fisher GTXpedition 81MH Can anyone share your PERSONAL experience on any of the the above rods please? My primary rod is a Carpenter EP 82/38 so I am looking for a backup with similar action. Any other recommendations on alternatives with similar rod specifications will also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
