Im curious as to why not more telescopic rods are produced by quality manufacturers. What im looking for is a good quality Telerod for mainly float fishing, but maybe some feeder and leger, if i decide to dabble. Any ideas?
You are going to struggle to find a telescopic rod that is capable of fishing float and leger tactics effectively.
The reason why not many manufacturers don't produce many telescopic rods is because there isn't a great demand for them, plus they can never be as good as three-piece rods due to the amount of sections that make the rod heavy, sloppy and cumbersome.
To be brutally honest, we recommend you invest your money in a put-together travel rod instead as they are far more durable and have a better action. Take a look at the Shimano STC range of travel rods - they really are of a high quality.
