Default needing a travel rod

what do you guys think of the Ross essence. Looking into a 9' 6wt four piece. I will be doing some long hiking and a travel rod would make it so much easier.
They claim that this rod is an excellent performer. compare it to rods costing much more. I know....sales pitch blah blah blah. Thats why im asking you more qualified guys than me. Im not looking for a rod like a top ross or orvis. Just a rod thats dependable, does what i need, doesnt look like **** in the process and something thats not going to fall apart while im using it. Plus its on sale right now for under 120 and free shipping.
