Suggestions On A 2-Piece Casting Rod

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for 2 piece casting rods to keep in my car since my 1 piece rods take up 1/2 my sedan.  Any suggestions on rods you have liked or disliked?

Tackle Warehouse has Abu Garcia rods which they offer in 2 piece for around $50.

 

The Abu Garcia Vengenance 2 Piece.

I bought one for the exact same reason.  I also bought an Ugly Stick 2 piece BC just because.

I have been looking also. The damiki 2 piece looked really good. I find it hard to buy a rod that I can't hold however. I bought a tournament classic 7' fiberglass rod from academy for $14.95 to use for treble lures. It works great for that. Not a great worm rod though so I needed a graphite. I settled on the quantum response 7' and couldn't be happier. It's got Eva split grips and micro guides. Defiantly worth a look.

This was a curse to me last month because I was looking for a high quality casting rod but "settled" for being two technique specific Compre rods. It was a pain bringing them home because I had to fold down the seats in my Jeep. Of course, not a horrible problem to have I suppose.

 

At any rate, because of this I'm tempted to repurpose that awful Ugly Stik I have with an old Shimano spinning reel for the every day carry rod and reel I was going to keep in the back in case I drove by a lake and felt the urge to do some shore fishing.

It needs to be able to put up with being in the trunk for long periods. I wouldn't do that with my quality rods.

Besides its only for those emergency fishing monents. Any other time I would bring some better stuff.

I agree with what Felix is saying, my two piece one that stays in the car all the time are my Shimano Zirca (6'6" Medium/F) and Gorilla Stik (6'6" M/M).  They both are cheap combos, Shimano Zirca spinning reel and Shimano Solstace.  You don't want your expensive setup to bang around in your trunk.

Take a look at the shimano compre line. They have a few of them in 2-piece. I own a casting and spinning model and they're both pretty good in my opinion.

If you'd like to get into building a rod, Cabellas has a two piece 6'6"  Med/fast Pacific Bay kit they're closing out for only $20. Everything is included and you can make do with a cardboard box with a couple of  V  groves cut in it for wrapping the guides.   I believe they're IM7 blanks.  Anyway, I built two Pacific Bay rods over the winter for the same reasons and picked up a couple of these to throw together for the kids.  A simple one color thread wrap on the guides and you could put one together in an evening.
