Re: 2 Piece Rod or One Piece ?
The one piece is definately better but the main reason for me using the two piece is transporting the rod.
I have a two piece custom 12'6" and the bottom section is only 4 feet so it has to ride on top of the truck. This presents a problem when you want to use a shorter rod. The 12 -6 either comes with you or sits in the rack on top of your truck.
The 10 footers just fit into the short bed broken down.
Otherwise all my rods would be one piece.
I have a St Croix premier bait stick. Solid rod. No complaints whatsoever. Warranty 5 years on the surf rods.
(Nose grease helps them not to get stuck)
