I'm liking 3 and 4 piece rods these days, mainly because they're easier to pack onto the back of my motorbike. I had a 7'6" 2-piece Fran Betters "Special" that was one sweet little peach of a rod. It didn't fit so well onto the motorbike but that's not why I sold it. Actually, I'm not sure why I sold it and often wish I had held onto it...

I prefer my one piece 6' bamboo or any of my 2 piece rods, 'cause the only travelling is in my car! Would never bring them on a flight.

So, I've never owned one but I voted 1pc. Reason is is they cast better. I buy almost exclusively 4pc rods because it seems like that's what manufacturers are making but if I could buy a 5wt in a 1pc I would.
