A tiny rod with an ironically large name, the Daiwa Revros Executive Travel Pack.

For example, the one pictured above is their Medium-light, fast action 7-foot one-inch rod. It can handle line weight up to 12 pounds and lures up to 3/8 ounces making it a good all-around spinning rod.
They also have other models available such as their ultra-light 6 foot. All the way up to their 7 foot 6-inch Medium-heavy fast action rod.
With its sturdy and durable IM7 carbon blank construction, you are getting a rod that is strong, sensitive, lightweight, and accurate.
This rod is super easy to travel with as it breaks down into 4 sections. These sections easily fit into the included protective case.

Okuma Voyager Travel Kit

- Travel case measure 17 inches long by 9 inches wide by 3 inches deep
- 6 feet long
- 5 piece travel rod
- 20 size spinning reel
- Includes a small tackle box for light tackle
This Okuma Voyager Travel Kit fits all 6’ of power snugly into a small and heavily padded travel case.
Perfect to carry with you into the great outdoors this rod fits together like a dream and, thanks to the strength of the graphite, has the power to bring up just about anything you can run into on a hike.
This rod and reel combo might not be capable of bringing up a massive marlin or taking on a large tuna but it works divinely on any size fish you’re likely to come across in freshwater.
It doesn’t matter if you are targeting panfish, bass, trout, catfish, or walleye, you name, and this combo can haul it in with ease.
This rod breaks down into 5 pieces and can be stored in the included travel bag that also is relatively small and compact measuring 17 inches long by 9 inches wide.
This makes this combo perfect to take along with you on your day (or longer) camping or hiking trips.
In addition, because the travel bag is so compact it is perfect for stowing with your checked luggage when going on a longer trip by plane.
Let’s talk a little bit about the reel that is included. The included spinning reel is size 20 and can hold 100 yards of a 6-pound test. For this price point, it is not the best spinning reel on the market, but it certainly will get the job done.
I’m still amazed at how easy it is to store 6 feet of casting power underneath the seat of my car, never again will I miss an opportunity to fish a nice-looking creek on the side of the road.

The next spinning rod to add to our list is the Goture Spinning Travel Set.
This is a 4 piece spinning rod specifically designed for travel. It is made with a 30-ton carbon matrix. It also was made with bias construction. In simple terms, this prevents the blank from twisting, giving you that durability that you want in a good travel rod.
With that all that being said, you have a rod that is strong, durable, yet sensitive and lightweight. For example, this rod only weighs 164 grams.
This rod is available in a number of different sizes. The sizes include a 6’6″ option, a 7-foot option, an 8-foot option, a 9-foot option, and yes even a 10-foot option. So depending on the type of fishing you plan on doing there is a rod for you.
The one pictured above is a medium-heavy, moderate fast action 7′ rod. I like this option because it is good for just about any time of fishing.
Lastly, it comes with a protective case makings it extremely easy to get to your favorite fishing spots.

The Fiblink 4 Pieces Travel Spinning Rod is exactly what it says it is.
It’s a four-piece Spinning Fishing Rod made of graphite that has been designed specifically for the traveling fisherman in mind.
This pole sports a very heavy lower backbone that’s just perfect for controlling and reeling in the heavier fish alongside an astoundingly responsive and sensitive fiberglass tip that reverberates any touch at the end of the line right through to your hands so that you remain in total control.
Once again it’s really surprising how strong some of these portable rods feel. This 6’6” pole easily fits into bags and suitcases and is a great pick for traveling. Everything about this rod just screams quality from the perfect ceramic guides to the ground-breaking modulus carbon fiber blank.
The best part is that it is available in a number of different sizes. For example, you can choose between a 6’6″, a 7’0″ option, or long 7’6″.

St. Croix Triumph 4 Piece Travel Spinning
- Power Rating: Medium-light
- Action: Fast
- Length: 6’6″
- Made with SCII graphite
- 4 piece setup
- Available in 3 different sizes: 5’6″, 6′ or 6’6″
If you are looking for a premium travel rod then you might want to check out what the St. Croix Triumph has to offer.
This rod is available in a number of different sizes. However, I would say that only 3 of them are really designed for travel. I say this because they break down into 4 pieces.
For example, you have a 6’6″ medium/fast action rod, a 5’6″ ultralight fast action rod, 6’6″ light /fast action, a 6’6″ medium-light/fast action, and a 6’6″ medium-heavy /fast action.
As you can see there’s certainly a variety of sizes available to suit the needs of the buyer which is always a good thing. Each of these three sizes is crafted out of SCII graphite and has immense strength and is a formidable force on the water.
The one pictured above is a medium-light-powered fast-action 6’6″ rod. I like this option because it is good for just about any time of fishing.
This rod isn’t purely brute force though, no, the sensitivity of the tip allows you to feel each and every bite you get and it has the right mixture of flexibility and strength to really allow you to sink the hook right in. I mean, is there anything worse than the one that got away?
It’s actually incredible how sensitive this rod is for a four-piece; put together you can barely tell it even comes apart.
The cork handle really seals in just how quality the build is and for such a low price it’s practically a steal. I’d recommend this rod to anyone in need of something to take with them on medium length camping trips
So, what is the best travel spinning rod?
That depends on your fishing needs and the type of fishing you will be doing. However, in my opinion, I really like the St. Croix Triumph.
It is available in a number of different sizes so you can choose the one that best fits your fishing needs. I also like that it breaks down into several pieces, making it extremely portable.
