I would personally go with the telescopic rod purely because it's easier to transport. Then again you can also float fish for pike and chub. There are rods specifically designed for pike fishing. The rod you mentioned would be a good all rounder beginners rod that could be used for many applications. The best bet would be to get in touch with your local fishing tackle shop and ask them for recommendations. They will be the most knowledgeable about what gear you should be using in your area. They will also be able to recommend you tackle and hooks etc. that should be used.
Hi there! A rod's casting weight is a recommend weight range that a rod is capable of casting to achieve maximum performance without damaging the rod. Casting a weight higher than this recommended casting weight could snap the rod. Casting below the weight range wont allow you to achieve maximum casting distance.Telescopic rods are great for travel uses where you need to pack a rod into a suitcase. Telescopic rods are not your only option however. There are also multi piece rods that come in sections. You can get very good telescopic and multi-piece travel rods. Shimano makes some good value telescopic rods, namely the Shimano Catana spinning rod. As long as you stick to major fishing equipment brands you should get a good quality rod!Hope this answers your questions!
