What’s going on fellas today, we’re doing a very interesting test a telescopic rod versus Two-piece rod, both of them are very portable. But which one should you invest your hard-earned money in? stay tuned to find out So I’m currently using the KastKing Black Hawk 2 telescopic rod now, this is a pretty high-end really nice telescopic rod actually Honestly, this is the best Telescopic rod I’ve ever owned because of the quality of it if you can take a look at the eyes right here I mean, these are really nice eyes The way that they built it is just high-quality and let me show you the difference between high quality and low quality Okay, guys, this is a low quality telescopic rod that I purchased for about $10 on Amazon It looked great in the pictures But when I when I observe it closely, I mean this is made of plastic. This is all like really cheap poorly made You can tell quality versus not quality and this is not quality versus something like this This looks pretty state-of-the-art okay, so this is the Blackhawk II It extends this one extends to 6 feet It does take a little second to set up compared to like a two-piece But once you have it set up and you have the eyes locked in right here you’re pretty much good to go just like that So once you get the eyes set up you’re pretty much good to go it took probably a minute to set up Really light and I’ve got this paired with a KastKing Eagle it’s called a Valiant Eagle which is I’ve never used one of their Eagle lines before but I’ve been told that they’re they’re really nice and From the feel of it. It’s really smooth. It’s really light and I’m excited to use it. I’ve got ten pound KastKing line on it as well And let’s see. This is this is a pretty nice setup right here. That’s really portable on the fly ready to go Look what I got. I snagged a bait… an Alewife Look at that. I hooked it right in the gill. I thought it was a bigger fish in that Yeah, I really like this because it’s a really sensitive rod Oh, nice! Stephen has a big perch! No–that’s a spot! Alright, Stephen, that’s good That’s good crab bait, too [Erin] Yeah, premiere crab bait That’s a big one [Stephen] It’s really nice Beautiful. Good specimen, right?
[Stephen] Yeah Whoo! I caught another–something this is another bait fish this is a, uh Alewife or a menhaden or something like that? [Erin] Oh, that’s definitely what I was seeing earlier that I was telling you about [Brendon] I can’t believe it hit it! [Erin] Could you bring it closer? I can’t believe it hit it I didn’t think these things ate anything. I thought they were filter feeders This is really good crab bait and we’re in an area where crabbing is really good A puffer fish? It catches every species I’m telling you a northern puffer fish this I’ve actually eaten in-when I was in– Where were we? Montauk?
[Erin] Montauk Yeah, they were serving fried puffer fish fried northern puffer. This is a little small. I’ll let this guy go Whoo! Whoa That is a nice perch That is a nice perch It took the squid And it just slammed it instantly Oh my goodness look at that fat perch Look at that perch That’s a good size Okay, so this rod casts really well I even tried top water and jigging with it great works just fine I have 10 pound line on here, so I was able to cast it pretty far Really sensitive reel. Yeah, really sensitive reel really sensitive rod great option I would 100% recommend this to anyone who’s fishing Anything remotely similar to what I’m doing, this is perfect My only cons for it is just setting it up and it’s hardly even a con. You know, I’m just impatient It just takes a little bit longer to set this rod up than a two-piece We are testing the telescopic rod versus this Sharky III** combo rod another KastKing combo That is it’s a two-piece Pretty portable as well. Not quite as portable as the telescopic But it has less places less breaking points Whoa, bird just dove and caught a fish Anyways, it has less breaking points Whereas a telescopic has it has a new one of these points every section and it has like six sections I think that this one will be ultimately a stronger stronger rod. So the worms just keep coming off every little tap So we’re gonna change it out to squid now. Do you want to use the–we have tentacles? we’ve got jackets, or we’ve got The strips right here.
[Stephen] I want to try a strip Alright, strips. Squid strips. Squid strips. Squid strips. [burps] Where are the scissors Here they are Need to bring a pair of scissors All right So we can cut whatever shape we want out of this and I think at the end of this hook I would like a little what looks like a worm So like that That should be good thread that on like a worm and then for me I’m gonna do a fishtail Just like that the fishtail like a shrimp tail Then I will put this on just like this Just like that Now this will be sparkling through the water and spinning around Something’s gonna eat this something’s gotta eat this for sure and it won’t come off the hook I thought I thought my other rock was super sensitive, but this one is super sensitive I’m getting bites right here– Ooh! This is a really sensitive one [Erin] What is it
[Brendon] Nice it’s a perch These are nice, They fight really well, This rod is actually even more sensitive than then other one so I take it back They’re not just as sensitive. This is even more maybe because I’m using four pound line But also this this rod actually feels lighter in my hand Wow One after another guys [Erin] Did you snag that one?
[Brendon] It went for it Look at that Right here’s the jackpot, right here, Stephen If you let it sink all the way to the bottom and then you slowly reel it in Whoo, big fot–big fat spot Nice [Erin] Big fot spat. Big fat spot Here you go, grandma. All right my consensus with both the telescopic rod and the Sharky III combo two-piece rod I like both of them a lot. They’re both great The telescopic one is pretty much the highest quality telescopic rod I’ve ever I’ve ever owned/ Seen but I think the Sharky III rod reel combo takes the win because not only does it have a cool not only does it have a kick-butt reel but it’s got a kick-butt rod and this rod is really light even lighter than the the telescopic rod And for the kind of fishing that I’m doing here Both of them are perfect. But I think I would rather bring this one next time if I had to pick one Anyways, if you wanted to try the combo for yourself or you’re looking for a new setup for yourself the telescopic rod and the The sharky III combo is in the link in the description below anything that you purchase from the link will help support our channel So thank you guys in advance for watching our show I hope you liked it if you want to try some of the supersalty squid We’ve got three kinds of super salty squid on our website check that out as well It works for so many different species and the best part about the super salty squid is that it’s so versatile you can use it as just a bait that you sit there or you can use it on a lure and With the new super salty jackets you can cut into whatever shape you want Thank you guys for watching if you guys liked our show hit the subscribe button And if you haven’t already press the– push the notification bell and that will alert you every time we put a new episode out Lately, we’ve been doing four episodes a week and you wouldn’t want to miss any of that.
