Default Bet Telescoping Fishing Pole and Length For Bass?

Hey Everyone, I'm looking around on amazon for a telescoping fishing pole for freshwater bass, which would be mainly what I would ever go for possible some fish in kensico reservoir however doubt it. Any recommended telescopic pole brands and lengths? Want one so I can stick it in my tackle back pack for easy transportation. Was thinking this brand?

I don't care much about the kit just focused on the pole

Thanks appreciate it!

While I haven't done much freshwater fishing in over a decade, I do have these but I prefer the non-telescoping packable rods that come in approx. five pieces. I just think that the telescoping ones don't have as much backbone. while my five piece rod (Daiwa) is pre-carbon fiber and is classified as an ultralight, I did catch up to two pound largemouth with it. I also would not want to go any longer than 5 feet with either type. Doesn't Kensico have some potentially tackle busting fish ? Anyway, the reel mine came with is still useable but nothing to brag about. OTOH, Amazon and this rod you are looking at do have some good reviews. Not sure how the guides are on this one, but on my telescoping spinning rod the next to last guide is not threaded to the rod but is meant to slide up until the rod thickens and it gets stuck. It tends to slip or go to one side upon some whippy casts. However, you are paying for all the lures, etc. and may get higher quality for a rod alone or just a rod and reel combo.

For $70, check out the Daiwa Presso travel rods. Had a couple and they were amazing for the price, light sensitive, etc. The rod you have linked is pretty much garbage. I find that all the "no-name" asian brand rods turn out to be crap and break after light use. Stick with the big name brands (Daiwa, Shimano, etc) and you'll be fine.
