    Someone probably has it, but it's probably the worst pole ever and can't even reel in a fish.

    i don't think that pole would last long... and with a 2 pound fish that line will pop and the pole would break. x_x

    The link worked for me...I don't know like...how into fishing any of you guys are but that idea prolly stemmed from what most offshore and some inshore fisherman use to catch baitfish...Some Sabaki setups are telescopic...never use more than 4# and sometimes are even reel-less. Though they're clearly trying to sell that as a "fishing setup" its pretty much just a joke or for some idiot who doesn't know what hes getting himself into.

    It's gotta be a joke, no way it could hold when a fish is tugging at it...?

    Well, there is loads of incredibly tough metals out there that are easy to use to create such a thing. Really, there's LOADS of elements out there.

    Though, it is just an infomercial. So I dunno, it's possible to make something like that that's incredibly strong and can hold a 2 pound fish, but does that really mean they made it out of similar materials?

    A two pound fish is tiny. And is it just me or the horrible quality of the video, but is there no line loops on that pole? That would present a huge problem in itself.

    You also may be able to carry the pen anywhere with you, but the "detachable reel" would be a bit cumbersome.

    :D

    I was wondering the exact same really. No loops, and the reel isn't exactly something to carry in your shirt pocket.
