Hi Friends

Need some advice as planning to buy a travel rod . Currently in Chennai but do keeping going to Kerala often and hence want a rod which is easier to pack and carry. Although my primary rod a saltwater 6 feet 2 pieces, but if I put into the pvc tubing case , its like lugging a Bazooka and not easily to manage while travelling with kids . I am getting in Chennai the Storm Solitude which is a 4 piece freshwater rod , but want some advice on other options.

Option 1 :Storm Solitude SOC 664M / 1.98m/4pcs / 53cm / 133g /
Medium-Fast / 7-21g/10-16lb/8 Guides

Option 2 : Shakespeare TRAVEL MATE / 6' 6" (Collapsed Length 15" / LINE WT: 6 - 12 Lb / SECTIONS: 6 / GUIDES: SS Guide with Aluminium oxide ring /ACTION: Medium /POWER: Medium /COLOUR: Black

Option 3 : Daiwa Fishing Rod - Spinmatic 7'0" Travel Rods / Spinmatic 7'0" Inshore / FW / LENGTH: 7'0" / LINE WT: 2 -6 Lb /LURE WT: 1/32-1/4 oz / SECTIONS: 4 / GUIDES: 9 / MOC: Graphite / ACTION: Fast / POWER: Ultra light

Would like to know anyone using any of these rods and any feedback basis the specs given. I am just starting into hobby and hence might do angling say once a month mostly freshwater/sometimes seawater.
