A few years ago I switched over to Cabela's XML Pack rods for both my baitcasters and spinning. I inially got them so I could hike and mt. bike into some backwood lakes, as well as take them on a plane. They turned out to be such great rods I use them exclusively now. Cast great, and I love the flexibility of being able to break them down and take them anywhere. I like them better than a handful of 1 piece BassPro models I've had over the years.

On the Ultra light side, I found 6' 6" model by Quantum that could throw 1/64 oz lures a few years ago. Rarely find anything lower than 1/32, and they're usually 5' to 6' tops. Bought two. Realized they were great. Bought two more, but I think they've been discontinued. Of course, I managed to snap one just last weekend when I was too aggressive trying to work out a snag. Have to try to Google up another or find new option.
