PLUSINNO Telescopic Fishing Rod and Rod/Reel Combo
PLUSINNO Telescopic Fishing Rod is very popular lightweight spinning rod. It comes in several sizes, suitable for saltwater fishing from the boat or shore. Since it is rather compact when collapsed, it is often carried on hiking and fishing trips where available space is limited or when traveling.
PLUSINNO Telescopic Fishing Rod is medium power rod, relatively elastic (some users claim that it is even too stiff!), made for lures weighing 20-40g (~0.7 - 1.4 oz). It is made using high density carbon fiber mixed with fiberglass fibers, making this telescopic rod strong and durable.
Sections lock into the place firmly and are rather easy to reset and close. Line guide inserts are made from aluminum oxide.
Reel seats are made from stainless steel, very resistant to saltwater. Nonetheless, it is good practice to wipe the rod with dry cloth after fishing - in the case of heavy sea, rinse the rod with fresh water first and then wipe it with dry cloth. It will last longer.
When being closed, PLUSINNO fishing rod is small and portable, and is convenient for carrying around. PLUSINNO telescopic rods come in several sizes - their sizes and other specifications are given in the following table:
|Max Length||Closed Length||Number of Sections|
|1.8 m (5.91 ft)||40 cm (15.75 inch)||5|
|2.1 m (6.89 ft)||41 cm (16.14 inch)||6|
|2.4 m (7.87 ft)||42 cm (16.54 inch)||7|
|2.7 m (8.86 ft)||43 cm (16.93 inch)||8|
|3.0 m (9.84 ft)||45 cm (17.72 inch)||8|
|3.3 m (10.83 ft)||46 cm (18.11 inch)||8|
Note: some sources state that 1.8 m (5.91 ft) rod has 6 sections, and that 3.0 m (10.83 ft) rod has 9 sections. First of all, these rods are made in China and it is rather hard to find official documentation. Also, it is questionable how people count sections, since some people don't even count base section with the real seat as the 'section'.
PLUSINNO Telescopic Fishing Rod is available as the rod only, as rod and reel combo, as full starting fishing kit with the transport with carrier case etc.
If you would like to buy combo, note that most combos contain spinning reel HA3000 model. It is decent spinning reel and given the total price, combination is excellent. Reel's gear ratio is 5.2:1 and the line capacity is (given in mm/m) 0.20/240, 0.25/200 or 0.30/140 - more than enough for fishing from the shore and fishing boats.
This rod and reel combo is durable and capable of landing many fish, often of surprising size and still be able to continue to fish as if brand new (thanks to the graphite/glass fibers combination). However, don't abuse the rod with heavy lures or really large fish, since it will break eventually (as any other rod will do) when you least wanted it.
PLUSINNO Telescopic Fishing Rod Holders
Rod holders are important when fishing with several rods at the same time. General fishing rod holders will do their job right, however, if you don't have any of them, you can order two basic types of rod holders for these (or any other similar) rods.
PLUSINNO aluminum fishing rod holder provides ground support - just push it into the ground and that is it. Whole unit is made of corrosion resistant aluminum alloy and can last for a long time - just don't step on it. Unit can accommodate various rods, not just spinning rods.
It can be found as singe rod holder, or sets containing two, three or four rod holders.
PLUSINNO boat rod holder comes with large clamp and 360° horizontal swivel. It can be mounted on the boat or any rigid square profile (on the pier, example) - max. clamp opening is 5 cm (almost 2 inches). This unit also can accommodate various rods, not just spinning rods.
Rod holder is made using impact resistant, heavy duty, corrosion resistant ABS plastic. It can be found as a single unit or as a set of two rod holders.
