Just a question. The general census is a one piece rod. 98% of my rods are 2 piece. out of 26 Combos only 4 are 1 piece. I have never broken a rod while reeling in a fish since i was 16 years old using a cheap $12 K-Mart Combo bass fishing in lilly pads. I dont have strength problems in my rods and I have caught panfish to 60lb+ Catfish on my rods. I know the rule of thumb is stick with what works for you but Im just wondering why everyone prefers 1-piece Rods over 2-piece Rod's?
