Hey guys,

I'm thinking about selling my NRX803C and Daiwa Tatula casting rods to get a 2 piece casting rod. It's much easier for me to travel around with a 2 piece rod, especially for a bank fisherman like me.

I'm looking for an all round rod, mainly jigs and Texas rigs, so sensitivity is key. Also, if it weights less than 5oz, it would be awesome. In terms of lenght, anything from 6'8" to 7'3" is fine. So far, I was thinking about a *** *** Black 7'1" MH, Shimano Expride 7'3" MH, and Megabass Hyuga 6'11" MH. I would like to keep the price under $250, but if a rod like the Poison Adrena 2 pieces is worth the price, I might consider it. What 2 piece rods would you guys recommend? Feel free to recommend other rods besides the ones I mentioned. I'm open to other options as well.

Thanks in advance.

I have a 2 piece shimano Clarus rod. It's ok but not anything that impressive. It gets the job done. I have been looking at possibly getting a Daiwa cronos or shimano zodias from japan. They seem to have a lot more 2 piece options than here.

I have a 2 piece Zodias ML, which is a pretty nice rod, but I like to have different brands and models. I didn't know they had the Cronos in 2 piece rods, I will check those out. Thanks.

I have 2 shimano exprides. They are both butt joined 2 piece models. Can't even tell once they are together. Different than most traditional 2 piece(middle joined) rods. No flat spots. Exprides are really sensitive. I got both mine on the bay for less than $150 each.

I didn't know about how the Expride 2 piece rod was divided... that might be an issue since it's going to be longer than most 2 piece rods when separated.

I think MajorCraft makes some two-piece casting rods that are in your budget range.  The one MajorCraft rod I own (a one-piece Volkey) is very sensitive and one of my favorites.

Tight lines,

Thanks, I looked at a few models, but I did not know much about Major Craft. There were a bunch of models too, so not sure which one is better either.

The Major Craft Ms-x is in your price range and I'd pick that up over the Expride 7 days a week. Great blanks, Fuji titanium Sic guides, and the build quality and detail is stellar.

Well, 15 years ago I bought a Cabelas MH Tourney Trail casting rod two piece to take to Florida for a family visit and it is light as a feather, still going strong and I could never tell it was two piece while fishing..

I don't think you lose much if any sensitivity with a 2 piece.
