Travel rods

Does anyone know if the g. Loomis escape series of travel rods is discontinued? I had one years ago that was fantastic and have regretted selling it ever since. I had the lightest one in the series which was a 3 piece in cherry red called an ETR75-3 ULS 4. what would people recommend as an alternative? This came in a hard case about 60cm long and was great for even the lightest lures. Would be great if anyone had a suggestion for an alternative that I could just keep in the car for unplanned fishing sessions. Budget up to ~$300.

They certainly still make and sell them overseas but in Australia that is going to be a bit of an ask. Had a 3 piece 20LB and 17lb versions and they were great. Moved them both on after years of service only recently. Good luck with the search.

Lox and Nitro do decent 5 piece travel rods.

I've got the Lox Yoshi which is a 5kg 7'6 rod and my Brother has the Nitro equivalent. Its abit heavy for bream but great for general purpose light to medium lure fishing.

Most of the daiwa and shimano travel rods are decent, and there are a few models to match your budget.

Have a look through their websites, but they're all good little rods.

The nicer daiwa one is the black label travel, or some of their true travel ones if you're after UL.
