This is a great question, and we get it often. Actually no, it does not come apart all the time. In fact, we have tested these rods in 4 countries and around 20+ states now and have never had one come apart while casting. Doesn't mean it will never happen, we have had our 4 piece rods come apart while casting so you never know!
Absolutely not! We love our 4 piece rods and fish them often. We produced the 7 piece travel rods to supplement our 4 piece rods. 4 piece rods are great, but they are not the easiest to travel with when fly fishing is not the main purpose of your travel, such as a business trip or family vacation. Dragging a 4 piece rod with us can be inconvenient, and eventually we will stop bringing it with us. Our travel rods are super compact and easy to travel with, making it simple and easy to have a great fly rod with us at all times.
Absolutely, we will stand by our products for all manufacturing defects. Just reach out to us, and we will help get you taken care of. Check out the warranty section on our webpage.
Given the fact that they have more sections, we recommend fishing them a little more delicate than your 4 piece rods. When we give our fish a little extra play, and we have not had an issue. We recommend a conservative fishing approach vs aggressive.
YES! We have several new weights in travel fly rods in manufacturing right now, and are bringing out a new line of premium 4 piece rods in the 4th quarter.
