I have a question for all you bloggers out there today. I would like your opinion as to the strengths and weaknesses of having a 2 piece fly rod versus a 4 piece design, all other things equal. Improved pack ability is definitely a plus in a 4 piece design. A 9 ft. rod that only breaks down into two pieces means the tube will be 4.5 ft. long. So do fishermen find improved performance in a 2 piece rod as opposed to a 4 piece? Or do fly rod companies only make the 2 piece, rods because they are slightly cheaper to manufacture?
