I wanted to get this and see if it would fit in my suitcase to take on my Florida trips. I am happy to say, it will indeed fit in my suitcase and will even fit in one small enough to be a carry one if needed. It comes with two different sizes and a telescoping pole so it is perfect for the beach activities that I like. I'm sure it will great for landing the large catfish that I catch in illinois as well. This is a nifty invention. Nets are always a pain to transport because they like to catch on everything because they dont fold. Now....there you go!
