    I like the four piece best; it packs nice when I take it down, but when I want to leave the reel and line on and break it down for a short jaunt or drive to the next stream, I just take it apart in the middle and it becomes a 2 piece. I bought a 3 piece rod on sale a few years ago, and I almost sold it later because when I left it strung and took the tp piece off, the tip didn't come all the way to the reel and it sort of flopped around. I'm so glad it didn't hit the reserve price on eBay; now I realize that as a rather stiff 6 weight, and only 8 ft long, it works great on streams for smallmouths. It handles my 7 weight sink tip lines and/or weighted smallmouth streamers just fine for the shorter casts involved, and it's a lot lighter and easier to cast than my 7 weight 9 ft Orvis rod.

    Started out last year with a 4pc set up and havent looked at anything else. The rest of my quiver is 4 pc rods as well.

    The rod that I find that I use the most in packing situations is my Winston LT-5-piece 8'9" 5-weight. The tube length is 24" and it packs well for my backcountry trips.

    I fly to different areas two to three times per month. I prefer the 4 pc for carry on and security reasons. When hiking in the local mountain waters, I will take a 4pc or a short 2pc.

    A 2 piece rod is the best, has a better action, but the 5 piece is more comfortable to travel

    I just bought a 2 peice, and I'm a rookie, so my input isn't anything. I'm just amazed at how light my fly rod and reel is compared to my baitcast rod/reel!

    Both of my rods are two piece. I'm a big dude and don't mind the extra length when hiking in.

    All of the rods we have are 2 piece, I drive to my destinations and have had no reason to have anything different because I have never travelled out of the Country to fish, if I do eventually go out of country then I would think a 3piece would be sufficient.
