A good idea or bad for big flats?
Why not?????? I know a lot of guys who use 2 piecers
I wanted to hear that,im going to have to get that catmaxx rod. $40 bucks....brand new....thanks brother.
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.
Just super glue it that will solve everything.
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.
I have a 9' 2 piece Catmaxx and love it. Medium/Heavy action
I use 2 piece rods and never had a problem with em. Like anything else in life, make sure to get a quality one!!
