    I dont think a two peace is as strong as a single peace and the action dosn't carry down evenly from one peace to the other

    A good quality two piece is great, caught 50lb flatty on a two piece LAMIGLAS rod that is older than me and it didnt bother it a bit.

    Curly, You will be more than satisfied with the 2 piece CatMax. You stated that it is a 10' version, but is it a Casting or spinning version? I have 5 spinning and 1 casting version and they are WORK Horses!!!!! They will perform the jobt that you need and not even blink. The action that I am using is the Heavy. The 10' and 11' versions are still sensetive enough to feel the nibbles when a fish is playing with the bait. I am not saying that you should use it for all fishing, but for BIG Cats, you are set! JMHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have two 2 piece spinning rods that I use for flats and a one piece casting rod. The 2 piece rods are much more convient and I have never had any problems with bigger flatheads.

    Traditionally two piece rods have always been a little weaker than one piece rods, but the difference now is minimal.

    The main difference will be a very slightly weaker spot at the joint and slightly different action at the joint.

    Either way, every rod I have longer than 7' (and many of them shorter than that) are 2 piece rods. If you take care of them, they will last and catch fish just fine.

    I like my 2 piece rods,they are pretty strong and a lot easier to pack in a car.
