    Lightbulb extendable rods... any good?

    each summer I do a trip for big pike that requires rodcases of 7' or less.
    So I've always been intrigued by the Tica and Okuma's 'stored length' rods--you know with the handles that slide up and are 'telescopic" to make longer rods collapse down to 7'and under for shipping.
    This would not replace my be-loved regular musky rods--but would let me fish longer rods in these remote waters.
    Any comments would be helpful.

    I used the Okuma telescopics all last season in the 8'6" and 9'3" in all models,and they were great,once they are opened you cant even tell you are using a telescopic rod,and never had any collapse on me while fishing.Also this year they have new blanks which are supposed to be 20 percent lighter than previous models,and also come in a split grip.
