what sort of rod are you after and budget

shimano do the beastmaster range in 12ft 3 sections...not a bad all round rod for the money

The Best rod I have found is the Harrison 4 piece either direct from Harrison or one of the rod builders like Peregrine or Tunley,Sliwa( I'm not sure Andy builds on Harrison blanks though)
I have a Shimano Bastmaster 10ft spinning rod I use for rolling meat but would use it for short sessions as well on the lead.

Never used them but Nash do their scope and dwarf (think its dwarf anyway) range which are two piece telescopic hybrid thing. pack down to 3ft I believe...maybe smaller. Worth a look, come in 1.75lb tc also
