Greetings.

I just pre-ordered the MB TRIZA F0-63XTZ Aello - supposed to be here end June but we'll see. In the meantime I'm thinking that it might actually be on the lighter end of what I'm looking for. What other travel/multi piece BFS do you guys like?

Check out Majorcraft, they had a Go Emotion rod (I believe 4 piece), that is still my favorite BFS travel rod. I paired it with an Aldebaran BFS XG, for Ned rigs.

I also have a few multi piece customs using Rainshadow blanks that I bought quite a few years back.

I ended cancelling my preorder for Megabass Triza for now - I ended up not really needing it.

Many JDM trout/BFS rods come travel friendly as multipiece or telescopic rods.
I enjoy my 3-piece trout rods: Daiwa Wise Stream 6’2” and Valley Hill 3’8”.
I also have an ABU KRX salty stage 5-piece BFS that is around 7’4”. It is a great rod for large trout and perch and would do good for bass.

Dalleinf,

How about I compare the Triza to my WiseStream 6'2" when I get it. That way you will know how they compare and if you need one!

That would be great, thank you. Any information would be great!

Cancelled my Megabass too and ordered the 6'2" WiseStream. The action's description of "slow" worried me for something not intended for drifting for steel head.

Saw someone mention on FB that the Triza UL is in fact truly a slow rod. Glad I cancelled my order.

Any word on the Triza?

Well, I ordered/cancelled a few times, and ended up getting the MB Triza Aello.
Based on 5 minutes in the backyard and 90 minutes at local small stream: It is a very nice rod IMO.
It is pretty. Comes in a beautiful rod bag. Grey-ish blank with blue and turquoise wrappings, see pics.
It is however rated a bit poorly with regard to lure weight - not 1/32 to 3/16 oz but more 1/8 to 1/4 (almost 3/8) or thereabouts. It is also more much medium/regular action than slow IMO.
I will use it with inline spinners, spoons, minnows, and UL cranks targeting large trout and perch, and think it suits that purpose very well.

I will add some more info when I have used it some more.

I haven't had mine out yet, work has been crazy. I also have a new Long hair Dachshund that is eating up my time. I think it is going to suit my needs very well. 1/8 jerkbaits are a main stay for me. I am looking for a reel to put on this rod. What reel is that in the picture?

It is a megabass monoblock grigio stone with ZPI NRC001M spool. My “only” megabass rod and reel so far. I never really saw the need for megabass reels with the great “baseline” offerings from Daiwa (and Shimano, Abu etc). However, I really like round reels and just had to try one out. Price/performance-wise the reel does not hold up, but it is nice to behold.
