I think the Korum Opportunist has a blank which retracts into the handle and a lot of telescopic rods do too. I'm sure Drennan will have done their homework. If it works maybe all their rods will be built this way.
I personally would much rather have a separate screw in handle extension than a telescopic section that could easily get dirt and grit in it reducing its life, any day. Ian.I would prefer the telly section set up than that daft screw on bit of handle that drennan had on their "so called" compact two piece rods. The screw on section wasn't deemed to be a part of the rod .
Of course the small screw in 'handle extension' was deemed a part of the rod; Ian; but not a part of the rod that had line running through it. It is just a short section of Cork on carbon handle extension that can easily be removed to make the rod easier to break down and fit into its rod sleeve that's all.The screw on section wasn't deemed to be a part of the rod .
Who's to say it's not built on a quality blank anyway ?Looks like a flawed gimmick resigned to a low resell value to me, just my opinion.
I'd much rather invest in blank quality and technology, maybe the manufacturers in general have pushed the current status quo to its limit and are short of ideas?
It’s always been the same since before they discovered that the world was round there have always been those that are sceptical to new ideas.
