I own two 8'6" Phillipson Power Pakts. Bought one from Coldwater Collectibles and bought the other for a song from someone off Craigslist. Use them often on high lakes. Three piece configuration is easy to pack. They can cast a nice long intermediate line from a float tube and are 5 weights in case I need a delicate floating line presentation. Hiked into a brookie lake this weekend and caught some fish for dinner.
