I’m getting ready to go on a trip and I didn’t want to take one of my better fishing rods so I decided to try out my zebco z-cast telescopic spinning rod (5’6 medium action). One my drive out to the west coast the first stop is at Keystone State Park in Oklahoma, the lake there claims to have walleye, bass, catfish and stripers. I’ll have about an hour to fish the lake and plan to hit it hard with inline spinners and jigs. Since this is very far from the landscape and conditions I fish it’ll give me a chance to catch my first walleye.
I took the zebco z-cast telescopic rod out for a quick test today and my first impressions are not very good. The rod claims to be a medium action, but it feels more like a light action. I rigged with an ultralight reel and 4 lb test line: the way it handled I couldn’t imagine it being able to handle anything heavier than that.
I will do an full review of this product when I am able to use it different conditions
