Default Re: Travel Rods with 6-8 pieces

Personally I never saw the need for anything more than 4 pieces, especially if the rod is shorter in general. Unless you are trying to fit the rod in a match box, I think 8 is a little unnecessary.

Objectively, one disadvantage to the additional pieces will be the increase in number of ferrules, which will in turn lead to an increase in overall rod weight, and probably stiffness.
