12 foot travel rods.

Hi everyone,

Just curious about peoples experiences/opinions about beach travel rods. I'm looking to get something that I can use down the beach targetting salmon/tailor/mulloway, etc... but will fit into a backpack.  I have a savage 5 piece 8kg rod which is great, but only 7 foot. I'm looking for something longer in the 12 foot range.  I can find some telescopic ones onlne, but I'm not sure how strong they'd be.

Can anyone give any advice or provide any insight?
