Default Re: four vs six piece rods

If you talk to the manufacturers, they almost universally say that the more sections any given rod has the faster the action becomes. But from 4 to 6 sections probably will not be enough to matter. 2 to 6 sections would probably be noticable enough to matter.

I consistently fish two Jim Teeny TFO, 10 foot rods. One in 5 weight and one in 7 weight. I find the compactness of the 5 sections wonderful when traveling, especially when flying.
