Beware of 2 Piece
Submitted by Salty from Florida on 03/02/13
Beware of this 2 piece rod. All sounds good and I bought this for travel as it was about the only spinning rod that had a good rating for line weight capacity and 2 pieces. However, 2 piece rods general come as two equal sections which makes is easy to get the rod into any standard rod travel case. Although this rod comes in 2 pieces the first piece is only the size of the handle and the second piece is the size of the remainder of the rod. Therefore one piece is 24" long and the other is 57" long! Not the right idea for a 2 piece rod. Very disappointed as 57" will not even come close to fitting into any reasonably sized travel case. Had it have been two equal parts as normal this would have been perfect. Please be aware of this before you purchase for a travel rod.
Great rod until it exploded!

Used the 50-100lb line rating rod. Great handling rod, light weight, very sensitive. Second season in use and was attempting to set the hook on a very large fish, when the rod exploded into three pieces! The breaks were very clean as if they had been cut and polished. Use this rod with caution.
