Re: 2 piece vs 4 piece fly rods
Maybe it is just me, but I won't buy a fast flex rod in a 4 piece - they don't work for me and I have broken two in the top section right above the ferrule.
Medium flex, and even medium fast flex feel ok in a 4 piece. But favorite rods are still 2 piece - they just feel smoother to me.
I do not own 4, 5 or 600 dollar rods though so maybe that is where the advances technology are more apparent.
sorry, don't mean to be a naysayer, but that is my experience.
