Rated 1 out of 5 by Jack Opened container and while extending rod, top portion broke off.
Thought that the Calypso would be good but disappointed. I had South Bend telescoping rods before and while they held up for about 4-6 months, they were almost good. This rod broke when extending to prepare the pole. Poor, Poor

I bought two of these rods at the same time. While mounting the reel to one I realized that one of the eyes was loose and it came totally apart while I was examining it. The other rod seems to be ok so I took the damaged one back to the store. I have the South Bend Rod and it has been flawless. I hope this rod holds up to the catfish test!!!
