Features and Benefits
The VANZACK Telescopic Fishing Rod stands out for its thoughtful design and versatility. As a telescoping rod, it can extend from a compact 46cm when collapsed up to 2.7m when fully extended. This makes it highly portable and easy to store in your backpack or tackle box.

Performance and Quality
Overall, the VANZACK telescopic fishing rod performs very well for its low price point. The construction quality is solid and the rod feels sturdy in hand. Casting distance is decent and the rod sensitivity allows you to feel bites from small panfish to moderate bass.

This rod excels as a versatile all-purpose fishing rod for freshwater. It’s ideal for camping, hiking, and other outdoor adventures where portability is paramount. The telescoping design makes it perfect to stash in your backpack.
It can handle a variety of light fishing applications from ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams. It’s a great rod for catching panfish, trout, bass, perch, crappie, and more.
