My fishing has changed over the years and now I am looking at buying a few 2 pc rods or combos depending on the deal. I usually fish with one piece rods but now that I don't have a boat. It is very hard to transport that equipment on family outings. I would also like to keep a rod in my trunk on the chance I go some where I could fish from shore just for some fun. Are there any good rods I should look at? On the other hand is there any brands I should steer clear of due to quality concerns? I will be checking Fleet Farm and Gander for options. I have until early June when my family is heading up to Minocqua for 5 days on our first family vacation. These would be panfish / walleye capable rods. If any one can help I would appreciate it, thanks.
