Cabela's Fish Eagle 50 travel spinning rod and a 2000 series Cabela's Verano 2000 spinning reel.
Both rod and reel performed flawlessly, and I spent a bunch of time with them in hand to really put them to the test. The rod cast my tiniest offerings amazingly well but still had enough muscle to battle fish in the current and to land my biggest fish. I also would never know it was a four-piece rod from fishing it. It truly handles like a one-piece rod, but it could be broken down an put in a travel tube and carried on virtually any fishing trip.
