    Ive heard a lot of good reports about the Shakespeare Expedition travel rods, if you want to spend more money then Vision Siks, more again Loop Cross or Gaelforce.

    Much would depend on the length and your budget, also do you really need a 10wt?

    I bought the Cross S1 13'2" and 13'6" especially for flying destinations. They are both great rods, not cheap but with a large grain/gram window that will cover practically everything from #8 to #10.

    If budget is not a problem then treat yourself to a Garlforce 6 piece 14'6"
