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.
We're all in the same boat. We all come 'ere and we don't know why. We all go in our turn and we don't know where. If you are a bit better off, be thankful. And if you don't get into trouble an' make a fool of yourself, well, be thankful for that,'cos you easily might.--J.B.Priestley
