Hello Capt. Neil,
I am looking to purchase a surf rod for baitfishing for blues/stripers..I was wondering if a one piece rod has an advantage(like distance casting or sensitivity) over a 2-piece rod or vice versa..I am looking into a 10ft rod that can hold about upto 8oz plus bait for the south shore..
Thank You
James

Hi BigRexInc,
Many years ago a 2 pieceaurf rod was a kiss of death. The ferrules were terrible and as you cast you could feel that it was a 2 piece rod.
The ferrules were made of metal.

Todays 2 piece rods are much superior. The ferrules are made of the same material as the blank. The fit is exceptional and it is very difficult to determine a 1 piece from a 2 piece rod if you were blindfolded while casting.

Sometimes equal blanks can cast alittle more weight if it is the 1 piece. Depends on construction of blank.

I would not hesitate to own a 2 piece surf rod today.

Here is a Lamiglas factory rod that might work for you, XS 10 MHC (Conventional), XS 10 MHS (spin), both 2 piece rated 3-8 oz, 17-40# line.

XS 101 MHC is 1 piece rated the same as 2 piece.
