I've carried close to 6' rod tubes/cases on aircraft (when they were glad to slip it in the hanging closet and when bins were inter-connected) and 8+' tubes that they'd put in the hold without a problem......All up until the greed and paranoia kicked in, and the second they realized a buck could be made, then they started having issue.

To that end, and even though they still try and give you grief I found i utilized my 2 piece rods more then single piece...So I guess 2 piece it is now, holding the line to the last.

B.E.F.

i voted 3 pieces. To me that is the best of both worlds. If transportation was not a factor, all my rods would be 1 piece rods.

I voted 3 pieces. I think its the best compromise between castability and portability. That being said, my favorite rods are both 2-piece rods.

I'm with emtrout and grtlksmarlin... My favorite rods all are two-piece, and since travel to good trout water isn't a concern any longer, I tend to stick with my "old favorites" whenever I hit the river...

Then again, I tend to start off every visit to the river with the same fly as well-- an Adams parachute, size #14. But, that's just me...
