Default Re: One piece. Fly rod

Serious question here.

All I hear these days is that current ferrule technology makes the difference between 4 piece rods and 2 piece rods non-existent. Why is there a difference between 2 piece rods (which seemingly no one wants anymore) and 1 piece rods?

In other words (or maybe furthermore), does a ferrule affect a rod? If so, why are 4 piece (3 ferrule) rods the industry standard over 2 piece (1 ferrule) rods?
