Hello I been tossing around the idea of a 5piece rod in my head and only in my head because if my wife finds out I'll have no head.I own a couple of four piece rods and 2 piece rods.I have a 2 piece Sage slt and find that it suits my casting style best.I mean to say that it's just one of those rods that is really enjoyable to cast.I am thinking of buying a 5 piece.I much prefer the slt over the xp.Does anyone out there have any preference or experience using a 5 piece?:

Why the five piece? You do a lot of airplane or back country travel? Some claim that the more pieces the worst they cast. I couldn't tell you the difference. If it gets the fly out there I am happy. But I have limited experience with travel rods. I do prefer four piece rods. When I am home I have a rod case that is made for two piece rods. But when I am traveling I break 'em down to four pieces. much easier to lug around IMHO.

My wife cannot fathom why I need another Rod either. But she doesn't mind too much

I like the SLT too BTW
