Two piece baitcasting rod question


Recommended Posts

Looking for a 7ft MHF casting rod and I have seen some that are 2 piece. I wonder how reliable they are, do you lose any backbone with a 2 piece as opposed to a 1 piece rod? I know it would be a real space saver during the ride to the lake. Any disadvantages?

I don't have the experience to think I can answer this definitively, but I am sure there is a trade off in portability with the overall sensitivity and strength. That said I am interested in the Kastking Pedigree rods that offer you twin tips on their two piece rods. Clever selling point on a two piece.

I can vouch for the Kastking Perigee II rods. I have both the spinning and casting versions. With the twin tips they are the best value 2 piece rods out there. Bonus is they look and perform fantastic.

I use the Daiwa Arditos M and  MH, casting for a few years now. From my experience with them is they dont lose  any strength but I do feel the weight difference with my one piece rods. I only use them for chuck and wind baits and jigs. they can be tiring to use if you have to impart the action on the lure like a jerkbait or frog or popper.

I bought a 2-pc 6'6"18 years ago from Cabelas to take to Florida and have fished the tar out of that rod to date and if there is a difference from that and my one piece rods I sure can't tell it.  Surprising for that old it really, really light.

As one who regularly uses two piece rods out of necessity, I can tell you without a doubt that as long as the rod is modern, say made within the past 10 years, I dare anyone to claim a substantial loss in sensitivity. Bottom line? Zero disadvantages from a sensitivity point of view. Yes, you might have to realign the guide once in a blue moon but that is a small price to pay for the convenience of portability. 

 

Maybe be in the old days, but no longer. 

 

Sadly, my one piece rods don’t see much action. 

 

Here’s the catch. You need to make sure the rod you’re going to buy is sensitive to begin with, therefore made by a reputable company. 

 

My two piece rods are:

6’6” shimano compre MH - spinning

7’ okuma celilo UL - spinning

7’ cabelas mag touch M - casting 

 

I am looking to add an MH two piece casting and the KK 2 piece casting rods are awfully compelling.
