Telescoping fly rods ?

I've been seeing a lot of these around in metal but recently I see where Kastking has a 9' 5wt and a 9' 8 wt graphites. Has anyone had any experience with telescoping fly rods ? Not Tenkara but real rods .

I am extremely interested in learning from more replies. While seeing heavier telescoping rods, I would be very interested in finding a 6’6”- 7’, 2-6lb / 2-4 weight BLANK. Can anyone point me in the correct direction? Ron, sorry to step on your thread!!!

No problem Mark , I have been interested in them for a while now . I bought a cheap Tenkara thing to make one but it was too flimsy . Anyway go to Kast Kings web site or YouTube and look at the one they make , pretty interesting .

Mark..i don,t know if anyone sells telescopic blanks but would like a source too, but i have used telescopic panfish poles like cabelas used to sell for exactly what your looking for, light power fly rods(3 to #6)..they collapsed to fit perfectly in my kickboat pouches so that i only had to make one trip to the water, drop the boat in then go fish..the cabelas panfish poles were graphite and had as many section as feet in length..easy builds..guides were mounted at joints and guide alignment was done on the water..lol. being poles they had no guides to take off just ty on what you needed..also for different size lines i just trimmed the tip section to make it stiffer..it worked very well though it didn,t cast quite as well as a true 4 weight but 35 feet was enough for me..just a thought, if you can find some panfish poles.

I like the look of these for random trout and coarse forays. 38cm collapsed.
