Hey Everybody, I'm in the market for a new spinning rod an baitcasting rod. I'm looking at st. croix premiers, abu garcia veritas, fenwick HMX,etc... I'm wondering if there is a big difference in sensitivity between one and two-piece rods. The baitcsating rod doesn't need to be terribly sensitive, as I'll be using it mostly for topwater frogs and spinnerbaits, but the spinning rod needs to be sensitive enough for weighltess wacky-worming. A two-piece would be worlds more convienent but I'm willing to sacrifice convienence if they are not sensitive. Thank you all for any help, Bass Resource has been a God-sent

No there is not a big if any difference my favorite rod for  wacky is a 2pc Avid

 

I'll add line type will have a greater effect than 1 or 2 pc

I fish both one piece and multiple section rods.

 

My stance is that if you fish quality & balanced tackle there is really no appreciable difference in sensitivity.

 

If the convenience of a 2 piece rod makes your fishing experience better, go for it you'll be fine.

 

Insuring that the rods sections are straight and remain secure will be your only and very minor concern.

 

Good Luck

I wouldn't think there is a performance difference. Personally, I prefer one-piece rods because there is no chance of one segment shifting or coming out.

Two piece rods have gotten much better over the years. The difference these days is very minimal. That said, I'd still rather have a one piece. If I were you, I'd go with the Premier.

Which 2 piece Avid do you have? I've been thinking about getting one and I've been going back and forth between the 6'6" medium fast and the 7' medium fast spinning rods.

No... I take,still to this day 2 piece, telescopic or what I feel well just work for my trip! Ajay is right on the money... I have a 9' avid 2 piece and I love it! Pick you're rods and enjoy the great outdoors!!i caught my personal best LM on Lochloosa lake in 1987 and it was caught on a bamboo cane pole with a 1" minnow while fishing for specks! (Crappie) crapy! Or whatever ! Just saying.....

Have fun!

Avid 8' medium light moderate not your typical wacky rod but I think its great for those, plus makes for a very good small cranker.

A one piece rod is stronger, lighter and more reliable construction than 2 piece rods. If you don't need a shorter rod to transport, buy 1 piece rods for bass fishing.

I have used both and they work about the same, the only problem I have with the 2 piece is the top half moves either disconnects if you don't really push the two together or the guides don't align and I just have to align them. Not huge problems but they are just a pain

The short answer is No, there is not a big difference in sensitivity between a 1-piece and 2-piece rod.

There is however an alleged 'dead spot', but if you were blindfolded I'm betting that you couldn't tell a 1-pce from a 2-pce rod (nor can I).

 

All other things equal, let no one convince you that a longer rod is more sensitive or more powerful than a shorter rod.

The reverse is true, which is why commercial fishermen use hand-lines rather than fly-rods.

Just like the transmission in our car, you either opt for power or speed, but cannot have both.
