30 years ago, I liked one piece spinning and baitcasting rods. Ferrule technology wasn't what it is today, at least not in my price range (I was
in high school). I tried a Winston LT a few years ago, and there was not
discernable dead spots at any of its three ferrule joints. The shop owner
demonstrated this with a two ounce weight attached to the tip top.

Responsive: I like that! Many of today's "latest and greatest" seem stiff and
unresponsive to me. I recently cast a ____ rod, and the 4-pc model was
much more responsive than the 2-pc version. I have a few 3-pc rods that
I really like, but that's a seldom seen option.

I haven't tried the Brook or Big Sky rods, but my Cortland GRX 5/6 was
very responsive. That's what I look for in rods, along with light tip weight.
