DB3 Travel Rod | Dave Barham Fishing
Expensive if you buy direct from Dave Barham but available on eBay from anglerscorner at half price
Dave Barham DB3 Travel 7' 7-35g Fishing Rod | eBay

I've got this rod and I think for the half price it's a barging. Having said that two things of caution. Casting weight is not described accurately IMHO. If you attach 35g lure you will have to be very careful casting. I think safe limit would be more around 25g. Second thing. For this type (casting weight and weight of the rod which is around 100g) I would prefer reel sit to be installed closer to bottom of the rod. It gives you more comfort while playing/twitching with your lures. Other then that great rod especially if you pay less than original price.

@Old kipper what do you need this rod for?

I my mind this is a great rod for big trout. Even in difficult river conditions like trees in the water and so on but I would not dare to target bigger spices especially in tough conditions. It's too light in my opinion.

For a heavier travel spinning rod , the discontinued & rare but sought after Daiwa 10ft 10-60g WS1004HS 4pc fits the bill admirably.

Can’t understand why they don’t make spinning rods in more sections?

The Greys GR70 are all 4 piece and come in various lengths, I have the 10ft 15-35G, its a very nice rod.
Oh, forgot about the Fenwick Ironfeather, they're rather popular here in Denmark, I have a 9ft, 6-24G I think, might be a little soft for larger salmon, but a heavier 10 and 11ft are available.
Both are priced at like 150 UKP.

For some reason we cant get Fenwick rods in the UK. Last one I bought was in Canada but I snapped it. Any recommended suppliers in Denmark?

I've designed 3 travel spinning rods.
A 10ft 15-40g 4 piece
A 10'6 15-40g 4 piece
And a 9ft 5g-20g 4 piece
I'm away to build my sample blanks soon and waiting on a run of them being made at the moment.

I use a 4 piece HTO Nebula for bass fishing which is an exceptional rod and such a pleasure to fish with.
I haven't had the chance to see if it has the guts for a huge salmon. Caught some pretty feisty sea trout though...
Recently snapped the top (my fault) and aftercare from Tronix was impressive.

I am thinking of going for the salmo seeker 9ft has anyone on here used it and what do you think of it.

Heard nothing but good things about the salmo seeker range. I like a 9ft spinning rod as i dont use heavy lures but you may be under gunned depending on where you are taking it.

I`ve been looking around for a new 9ft rod for some time and the "seeker" has been the current rod of choice over the past few seasons with my fellow ADAA members, so I looked at John Norris and noticed the rod was reduced to £62.99 instead of £84.99 so I bought one Wednesday night and am due to get it later today.

Weather permitting I`m hoping to get out on Saturday to put it through it`s paces, so will let you all know how I get on.

Have a look at the Sakura range. Got a 15-60gr Badia last year and it's fantastic. There was a lighter version which would be ideal for the OP.
They're stocked at GUC if anyone wants to have a look. Frames in London stock them too.
They are a quality product.
Incidentally, I had a look at an Abu spinning rod about 5yrs ago and I wasn't particularly impressed. I'm sure they're efficient enough though.
