I always used 2 piece fly rods until we took a trip to the Bahamas and I purchased a 4 piece. A 4 piece travels much better and I have not noticed any difference on performance.

I don't notice any difference between my 2 and 4 piece rods from the ferrules. Casting a friends 1 piece Hardy Zephyrus was a dream though. Just too much to deal with even though I live on the water and my rods stay assembled. I just flew with 4 4 piece rods in a travel tube as my carry on. Easy fit in the overhead on the plane.


Besides what was said about lubing the ferrules, make sure you check the sections for tightness every so often. Easy to break the tip of the male end off if the sections get loose and you load up the rod.
