    When i saw what you had put together, the 1st thing that came to mind was "a dwarf fishing rod n reel". Just kidding! Extremely short rod reel combos are quite common for use in ice fishing, and can be quite inexpensive. Searching "ice fishing spincast poles", came up with this and several other links. No. 8 Tackle Heatwave Ice Combo - 26
    Many of the rods or rod n reel combos here are as short as 20" - 24" others up to and over 30"

    Yes I am a damn transplanted yankee. But I have been down here summers since 1959 and more or less permanent since 1970

    I seldom fish any more and have a rack with a couple dozen rods and reels, fresh water casting and fly, and salt water, The oldest one cost me a couple or three days wages, the newest and the best cost me a buck at a yard sale and they threw in 3 others that they couldn't sell. Often find good tackle boxes, rods, reels, fishing stuff at yard sales for nearly nothing and I expect my kids will sell them the same way after I die. Nice compact and looks like a very handy reel. Thank you for showing it to us.
