High-Performance Custom Rods for Your Fishing Trip

Whether you're heading to Florida, the Bahamas, or any other body of water in the world, find out what rod build is best to make the most of your time there.

Here are the top 3 destination travel rods to build:

The Most Valuable Travel Rod for Keys or Stream Fishing

When you're heading down to the Florida Keys, but all you can think of is hooking up on a bonefish and hearing that reel squeal as your fight begins, the TFW781-3-MHX will be the best light travel rod to keep in mind.

The TFW781-3-MHX is rated for 2-6 pound line, 1/32-1/4 oz lures, and performs great in freshwater and light saltwater applications alike. With a moderate action and light power, this TFW781-3-MHX gives you an awesome performance and a high-quality experience. Measuring in at 6'6", you can expect the TFW781-3-MHX to cast with incredible precision, which helps to keep from spooking fish in the gin-clear waters of places like the Keys.

Or are you considering a camping trip? Chances are there's a stream nearby, so build the TFW781-3-MHX for the best light travel Rod. Perfect for catching stream fish like trout, panfish, and perch, this TFW781 will put a ton of fun in the palm of your hand!

Although great in lighter applications, the TFW781-3-MHX is also perfect to hand over to your kids. Before long, you'll watch them reel in their next fish or maybe even their first, while all you have to do is savor the memory.

Additional Tips for Multi-Piece Travel Rods

Multi-piece blanks, like the MHX Travel Rods above, are perfect for accompanying your adventure, but these blanks do require some extra preparation. Namely, ferrule wraps on each section are necessary before you hit you the water.

Increasing the hoop strength around the female end, ferrule wraps reinforce the connection point between each conjoining section of the blank. Some ferrules can include guides, while others serve as support, but regardless, there importance remains the same.

MHX is proud to engineer performance driven rod blanks for any occasion. If there's water, chances are there's also fish, so see what you could catch on your next vacation.
