One piece vs multi-piece

Recommended Posts

I have decided to take the advice of alot of guys here and build a few quality rods. I am going to start with a spinning set up that will be used for worms and other plastics but will be a decent all around rod. I am planning to buy a 7' St Croix Premier Medium Power Fast action and pair it with either a stradic or a symetre. I am not sure if I should get a one piece or a two piece. Is there a loss in sensitivity with two piece rods? What do you think of this combo?  Jim

Do you have a reason you would even consider a two piece rod ? I would build a one piece first , it's more senistive. JMHO

Unless you absolutely have to fit it into a suitcase or something I wouldn't buy a multi-piece rod.

Personally, I'd opt for the cheaper of the two reels and use the difference to step up to an Avid instead of the Premier.

With the one piece it would have to go in the bed of my truck; with the 2 piece I could put it in the cab. I was looking at the avids too, but I didnt notice that much of a difference compared to the difference in cost (altho I was just going by feel and havent fished them). Maybe the avid will go on sale before christmas and then I will definately move up and grab it.

go 2 piece.

im with Stasher1. id rather have symetre and avid than stradic and premier. if you can find last yrs model of either reel, im sure it will be a bargain. remember, for soft plastics, sensitivity is very important.

I carry my rods, for the most part, lashed together in the back of the van, so a one piece rod is not a problem.  However, if transportability is at all an issue, go ahead and do a two piece.  I have to admit, if there is a difference in sensitivity, I think it is hidden in other variables such as line and lures and grips.  I have both and cannot feel the difference.

One issue not often addressed in one vs two piece is the fact that guide winding is a lot easier on two piece rods than one piece rods.

IMHO
