1 peice and 2 peice rods

Recommended Posts

A 2 piece version of a good quality rod is as good as the 1 piece version, the action and power of the one piece vs the two piece version is the same.

Some people believe the sensitivity is diminished on a 2 piece vs. a 1 piece. With me, the jury is still out on that one. I've never seen anything that would cause me to believe that but I'm not the most experienced person in using jigs or other lures that require a lot of sensitivity. However, now that I'm getting more into fishing lures that need more sensitivity, I have been buying one piece rods.........just in case! ;D :)

So far, I have owned quite a few 2 piece rods and have never had any problems with the better ones. Cheaper ones would periodically send the top half out into the lake with the lure on a cast.

There is no way a rod that is Pretty much "cut" in two can transmit vibrations equal to a rod that is a full one piece! It may not be enough for most of us to notice but the difference is there!

Well, any two piece rod I've ever bought I've always rammed them together so tightly that it took two people to pull them apart so in essence it was like having a one piece rod. Don't laugh, I'm serious. :) My wife nearly fell on her butt one day helping me pull one apart, it was so tight. We played tug of war until suddenly it popped apart and she staggered backwards.  ;D So I doubt I lost "that" much sensitivity.

I used to get them because they would come apart and fit in the trunk when I first started fishing. Those were "pre-boat" days. Now that I have a boat I don't take them down anymore, and just to avoid the risk of diminished sensitivity I only buy a two piece rod when I really want a particular rod and a one piece in the same kind is not available. Otherwise, I get all one piece rods now.

i only fish 2 pc rods.....

mainly bc that is the only way i can transport them, a 7ft rod wont fit inside the truck, and leaving it in the back for some idiot to walk off with just isn't an option.

as for lost sensitivity,

sure there's probably some.....is it enough for me to notice or care..... nope.
