Default Re: Favorite number of rod pieces?

There was a theory some years ago that the 3-piece rod was superior because of "wave theory," that is the symetrical wave lenghts that occur naturally in a fly rod did not line up by rod peice...which is good.

But I don't cast well enough to worry about advanced physics. The rods I've purchased weren't available in a 3-piece, and 4-piece rods are incredibly convenient.
