Take a look at the Cabela's Stow Away; very nice rod.

Redington Classic Trout - It is available in 5 piece 8 foot 3 weight and 9 foot 5 weight configurations.

If you need heavier duty rods, you still could find used Sage RPLXi 5 piece rods.

Actually 4 piece rods up to 9 feet will fit in most large size luggage.

I've had a 9' 6-piece TFO Pro 6wt for a few years, and I've been pleased. Being flat black, it's great for stalking fish (though not a light rod) if you're the camo-wearing type. If you're after a medium-fast 6wt, you might try to find one of them to test cast or at least get a feel of.

I've only cast the Cabela's and I was surprised at how well it casts. The rod, however, looks a little cheap, if that matters.

The "Fly Shop Closeouts" website has the TFO Pro 6-piece travel rod for sale at 50% off retail - only $105. Available in 9ft length in either a 5wt or 6wt. The rod comes with a rod sock and a Cordura covered rod tube. The TFO Professional is a medium-fast rod. While this is not the lightest travel rod in the market, you cannot beat the price for a good rod, and the TFO lifetime warranty is the best there is - broken for any reason, they replace it for $25.

Fly Fishing Closeouts - " + docTitle + '

Rod is on second page of website.

Correction - now available ONLY in a 6wt - guess they sold out of the 5wt rods.

What about the Winston LT? This rod is the standard in luggage packed travel rods. Also Dan Craft has a very nice quality 6 pc blank. He may have a completed rod for sale.
