Yes, not to hijack this thread but I know the discussion you are referring to and it is silly.

Thanks guys.

Matt, I hear you about making the rods one piece, specially short rods. I have a 1 piece 8wt GLX that I have been using most of the year and it has served me well. I like the 1 piece so much I am thinking about picking up another soon. My 4 piece 9 footers have not seen the light of day since my Keys trip in May.

Rumor has it G Loomis is working on a one piece short rod. If they release a new one piece series I hope they are reasonably priced like the original SS rods.

When has "reasonably priced" stopped you...
