Daiwa Megaforce Telescopic allround Fishingrod. The Megaforce telescopic rods now feature a reworked design, improved components and additional models. The rods with lengths of 5.90 Feet to 9.8 and casting weights of 0.25-0.90 ounce to 2.50-5.30 ounce are now available at a very short closed length of only 27.16 inch. Perfect, when the rod is transported in a backpack or travel bag. The models with 10.80 Feet length and above feature a somewhat longer closed length and display actions, which resemble the bending curves of detachable rods. The lightweight and wellbalanced carbon fiber blanks care for an outstanding action at the fight and at casting. The lightweight and premium titanium oxide guides with improved inlays additionally support the quick resilience of these rods. Available at an outstanding priceperformance ratio, this range offers the proper rod for nearly every field of application. HMC+ carbon fiber blank, High-quality cork / EVA handle, Titanium oxide guides.

I've been fishing almost exclusively on telescoping rods, and they're a tricky bunch. I think the Megaforce is an outdated technology, to be quite frank. It's light years beyond that of the Eagle Claw, the Plussino and the Sougayilang, all of which are stiff as boards, and the Zebco, which is a wet noodle. The Kastking Blackhawk II is a better rod to be sure, I think because it has more guides and a few floating guides at that, as well as a lot of weight/action combos. But my Kastking broke within 3 weeks too, because the guides were not that well built and basically abraded the tip, which though responsive, was flimsy and eventually exploded.
The problem with the Megaforce 6.9' rod is that even though the rods are light and responsive, there are far to few guides, and the construction of these guides with collared rings leads to stress concentrations. There are 5 guides, one for each section when for a 7' rod, there should be 9, like there are on the Kastking or the higher end telescopics like the Daiwa Blazon Mobile, the Triple B and the Abu Garcia Trout Marquis. I think the configuration of the Megaforce may find it's sweet spot in the larger rods with more sections and more guides, but on the light and short end of the line, it's far too few. With 6 pound test, I loaded up the rod over on a snag I thought was a fish, the rod doubled over, but with only 5 sections, that's more than 30 degrees bend that gets concentrated on each of those collars, and sure enough, one of the sections snapped right at the ring. I worry that my 7.9 footer will do the same because it's made the same way, only thicker. If the longitudinal geometry is the problem, it's not significantly changed on the 7.9 footer.
Meanwhile the Daiwa Ninja seems to have the same configuration. I've not tried this one, but I won't bother. The Blazon Mobile Baitcaster seems to be the first in the Daiwa telescopics, at about a $120 price point on that other auction site, that really gets the sensitivity and strength. It's a 6'10 rod, 8 guides, and uses wrapped carbon fiber collars, and the same carbon rod tube tech the Tenkara rods use for the tips. That makes a huge difference. I've pulled in a handful of 4 and 5 pound bass with it in the last month and haven't questioned the rods strength yet.
The Blazon, the Triple B and the Abu Garcia all use a rubber seat for their floating guides, and this protects the rod shafts. I haven't ponied up for anything beyond the Blazon yet, but the Abu Garcia Trout Marquis seems to be the pinnacle of telescopic tech at it's lightest, but with a price tag to match. Youtube reviews from Japan and Singapore seem to the the Triple B is the gold standard. My dilemma now is which of these three to replace my Megaforce with?... I broke the rod today and tomorrow does happen to be my birthday. Just sayin'....
I love it.

For the money paid, I was expecting more quality than the one I observed.
Update: after a long fishing session, the tip of the rod was badly damaged during fighting a carp. It seems to me that there was already a fault or some kind of pre-existing defect as the "fibers" started to separate from the rod until it got broken. Defintely not recommended.
Ich würde die Ruten wieder kaufen und kann diese daher auch für jeden empfehlen.
