Hey guys, I am looking for a 4 pc rod that is short enough to easily fit in a backpack for my hiking or dual sport motorcycle trips. I have searched online to no avail. Any help is appreciated.

I would just buy one of these and not worry with the 4 pieces. $19.99

What about something like this : https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/crystal-river-executive-travel-fly-spinning-combo?a=45365&pm2d=CSE-SPG-15-PLA&utm_medium=PLA&utm_source=Google&utm_campaign=CI&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIoLbf3dzO2AIVFrXACh0QXQghEAQYBCAB EgL3MfD_BwE

or this : Daiwa - Executive Spin Hard - ETPSP-CF3Bi/WN - Big Country Sporting Goods (http://www.bigcountrysportinggoods.com/daiwa-executive-spin-hard-etpsp-cf3bi-wn/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIoLbf3dzO2AIVFrXACh0QXQghEAQYASA BEgIEyvD_BwE)

or even this (if you want to go cheap) : https://www.carid.com/okuma/voyager-6-spinning-travel-kit-mpn-vs-605-20.html?view=500575&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhr6Rvt3O2AIVSrjACh3ulQTuEAQYBCAB EgITwPD_BwE

Now, I'm just suggesting the rod/reel kits, not these particular places to buy them. There are many other kits out there, and prices depend on where you purchase them from ... so do some searching. I used "spinning travel kit" in Google Search to get started looking at what's available.

I always packed a 4 piece 4-5 weight fly rod 7’and/or 8ft. and depending where I was packing switched out with either spinning reel or fly fishing reel (same with baits). A lot of guys are going to the tenkara fly rod setups of which you might do alittle research on. Tenkara Rods are 3 and 4 piece and fairly light weight.
