Pike Rod Review: 6 Fishing Rods Under 100 Bucks Reviewed & Comparison

By

Here you can find our current pike rod tests. We have tested 6 pike rods under 100 Euro.  Within the tests we especially focus on the different characteristics of the rod, the casting behaviour, the material and the handling.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, you can simply look at the fishing spot. There you will find a really large selection of pike rods. Just have a look and browse a little.  And now we wish you lots of fun with this new pike rod test.

Note: From time to time it can happen that selected rods are not available for a short time. If this is the case, you will find numerous rods for pike fishing on this overview page.

DAM Tele fishing set predator rod + reel Quick Impressa in pike rod test

The rod is 2.40m long in total. With a transport length of only 68 cm it is really very small and compact. This is because it is completely a telescopic rod. A big advantage as we think is that it fits easily into any backpack.

In addition, it has a graphite reel seat with stainless steel inserts which makes it look very noble.  If you hold the pike rod in your hand and are used to cork or similar, you will feel a certain difference due to the foam. In our opinion this is not too bad.

After the pike rod has been let into the water you will notice the consistent line. The line runs cleanly and without problems.

We also like the line capacity of up to 240 m with a line thickness of 0.2 mm. There is enough space for a good pike fight. All in all this pike rod is really solidly made for the price.

The DAM Tele Fishing Set Predator rod is a solid beginner’s model among the pike rods. At 2.40m it is not the longest pike rod, but handling is all the easier for the untrained.

All in all, this pike rod is less suitable for professionals and makes a solid impression on us in terms of workmanship, weight and price/performance. A big advantage compared to the other pike rods is that it is very small and compact during transport.

Abu Garcia Vendetta – Spin

Note: It is possible that this item is currently not available. As an alternative you can use the following display high rods.

The manufacturer ABU is primarily known for their amazingly good quality. And this is also immediately noticeable when you have unpacked the rod and hold it in your hands.

This is a really high quality 3,30m rod with 3 parts in total. Among the tested pike rods it is one of the longest pike rods. The other rods have an average total length of “only” 2.70 m.

The processing is really good. The pike rod has a total of 3 parts which can be easily inserted into each other. Also the weight is with 287 g really very handy and comfortable to carry.

It seemed to be very well balanced which has a positive influence on the handling. The transport length is 1,15 m. This makes it a bit bigger than the DAM Tele Angelset predatory fish rod.

But also the Abu Garcia Vendetta – Spin can be stowed away without problems. The casting weight is 20 to 60 g and in our opinion it is completely sufficient for pike fishing. Unfortunately we could only catch undersized pike with the rod and had to release them afterwards.

But it was still a lot of fun.

Pike rod summary

The Abu Garcia Vendetta – Spin is a solid predator rod that is ideal for catching pike. It is really high quality manufactured and convinces with its great guidance and balance. The price / performance ratio is also ok.

The only disadvantage we really noticed with this pike rod is the high weight.

Alternatively, you can have a look at the rod at the display fishing spot.

Balzer Magna Silver Spin 40 2,40m

Note: It is possible that the item is currently not available. As an alternative, the following display lifting rods can be used.

The pike rod Balzer Magna Silver Spin 40 is equipped with everything a pike rod should have. This includes for example the solid basic length of 2.40 m and a feather-light weight of 180g. This makes this pike rod one of the lightest of its kind.

However, it also has a relatively low casting weight of 10 to 40g. There are pike rods like the Abu Garcia Vendetta – Spin which has a casting weight of 60 g and is much heavier. Otherwise it makes a quite solid impression regarding processing and material.

The cork handle is of high quality and is very comfortable to wear.  Furthermore, it is easy to transport. Altogether there are 2 parts which simply have to be put into each other.

The transport length is 1,25m. This makes a problem-free transport in a VW Passat possible.

Summary

  • Length: 2,40 m
  • Total 2 parts
  • Length for transport:  1,25m
  • Weight: 180g
  • Casting weight: 10-40g

Conclusion

All in all a good pike rod. Unfortunately we have found out in the pike rod test that the cast weight is only 40g maximum. Nevertheless the Balzer Magna Silver Spin 40 shines through its light weight and excellent guidance.

Another positive aspect is the extremely light weight of only 180g. However, it is also only 2.40m long and is therefore one of the smallest of the tested pike rods.

Daiwa Lexa Spin Spinning rod 2,70m

The Daiwa Lexa Spin spinning rod 2,70m is really great. In our opinion it has an excellent workmanship. You can feel this already when you take the pike rod in your hand for the first time. It is really light for a pike rod with a total length of 2,70m and has a very fast action.

Also the handle is not too thick but also not too thin. This gives you a comfortable feeling on your hands during use and handling. Thanks to the light weight you can hold this pike rod longer in your hand without your arm falling off. Like almost all pike rods in the test it can be divided into 2 parts.

In total it has a transport length of 1,42m. This makes it easy to transport and stow away. We even had the pike rod stowed away in a large backpack for the test.

Although it is not the most compact rod, the quality and workmanship is enhanced by the carbon fibre construction.
