Gear Review: Okuma Voyager Travel Spinning Combo

WHAT IS IT?

OKUMA Voyager Travel Spinning Combo

WHAT SETS IT APART?

When space is limited but your destination promises accessible angling opportunities, a travel combo can unlock the potential while maintaining a minimalist profile. The OKUMA Voyager Travel Rod fills this space well with a sturdy spinning combo that’s ideal for panfish, stream trout, bank fishing for catfish and light bass fishing duties. The spinning rod and reel come with a small tacklebox and a padded travel and storage case.

HOW DO I USE IT?

The Voyager combo features a 6-foot medium light spinning reel, featuring a stainless-steel hooked reel seat with a machined aluminum anodized spool that holds 2- to 10-pound line. The rod breaks down into five pieces that fit into a shock-resistant foam insert, along with the reel and included tackle tray. Everything fits conveniently into a nylon travel bag

ANGLER’S INSIGHT: 

Plenty light enough to carry by hand or in a backpack, the convenient size fits easily into an airplane’s overhead storage or under the seat. One thing I noticed was that the outlines for the rod, reel and tackle tray spaces were cut all the way through the back sides of the foam. This won’t present any issue unless you remove the foam block from the case. If you do, the higher backside pieces pop out under the weight of the reel. Easy fix: Remove the product, turn the foam block over, align the backside pieces and add Super Glue to the seams.
