Default Re: One piece. Fly rod

A 4-pc. rod is built on 4 separate mandrels...a one-piece (duh) on one. Ferrules are much better than they were making the convenience of 4-pc. rods viable quality alternatives to 2-pc. I liked 3-pc. when they were sort of popular (Diamondback Stu Apte rods, Redington Nti's and early EXS's...try a Sage 3-pc. SP+ sometime...). But NO ferrules?, this is a rod designers delight. There is no compensating for the even small dead spots, no loosening and breakage due to loosening...just a continuous, uninterupted flow of pure taper design! Yes, one-piece rods are really only PRACTICAL for a guy with a boat, rod rack overlooking home pool, etc. I fish some 2-pc. rods by car, by plane I use mostly 4-pc. now but a few 3-pc. still might go with me but I want the Zenith one-pc. #4 because it is spectacular!
