Detachable fighting butt
I'm putting on a detachable fighting butt on my rod.
All things equal w/ a 2 pc blank (i.e. without touching/cutting the blank), the butt adds roughly 1.5" to the butt end of the rod (therefore making it longer than the tip end). Before I cut down my rod to accomodate the butt (and 'even out' the two pieces) I wanted to solicit board opinions
Are equivalent sized pieces necessary/required/recommended? Is it performance related or asthetic?
Any and all advice appreciated.
