Default Re: 2 Piece Rod or One Piece ?

Ferrule technology has come a long, long way in the past few years.

Just look at fly rods. All the best rods are 4 piece now and in the heavier weights these rods are dealing with immense pressure and heavy flex right through the ferrules.

I used to be a one piece only guy and when it comes to any rod more then five plus years old I will still prefer to go with a one piece. However, the new high end two piece rods like the AFAW are just as strong and reliable as any one piece rod out there.

This doesn't hold true with Kmart or Walmart rods, crap rods are crap rods and have crap ferrules - you get what you pay for.
