Do they make 8' 2 piece cod rods ?

I have only been cod fishing for a few years now and I'm totaly hooked. I have a couple of 6'6" ugly sticks that work pretty well for me but I see everyone useing 8 ft rods. I think it would be better for slinging jigs and for fighting fish. The trouble is it won't fit into my blazer or the car on the 4+ hr trips. Would a two piece be strong enough on some of those 400 ft pollock doubles or the 50+ dream cow cod we all hope to catch. Any info would be great. Thanks alot and tight lines.

I use a Sea Isle rod that comes apart at the reel seat. It has a notch in the end of the Ferrel that goes over a locking pin in the reel seat and has a lock nut {that's what I call it} that screws the two pieces together. It makes the rod 2' shorter and fits in my 4 Runner.
