I have an old telescopic and a new one piece. One piece hands down. Only reason that I had the other is to fit in old rod locker.

7'3" heavy kistler klx one piece. Typically, the newer one piece rods have the first guide set closer to the reel seat which eliminates the line rub that would happen a lot with the telescopic rods because the guide would be set further up the blank so that it could telescope without that guide getting in the way. That distance would cause the tight line of a hook set or fish on to rub against the blank which is not optimal. In general the telescopic rods have fewer guides as putting more guides on a rod is a more recent (last ten years) adaptation which increases sensitivity and overall stability for casting heavy lures or getting fish out of heavy cover. If you have your heart set on telescopic they do the job just fine, but the one piece rods have some performance advantages I believe.

I haven't owned a Kistler so I can't back that up, but everything else that Timbass mentioned comes into play and is VERY well said...

Two piece rods are much heavier and.. in general.. are noticeably less sensitive. I'm sure there is an exception or two to that rule as far as sensitivity with a well built rod for certain people and their needs - but you're sacrificing something no matter how you cut it. It's hard to balance a telescoping rod to a reel... Which is a huge factor in creating "the perfect" combination between the rod and reel...

Yet... Barbie poles from WalMart have definitely caught more 10lb+ fish than I have! The most important thing is finding those fish and being able to stay on them!

This week, I was lucky enough to catch a couple teethy 17lb Northern Pike on a Berkley Lightning Rod with a Shimano Bantam that's older than I am with 6lb mono on Lake Oahe, SD... Sooo just about everything I knew pretty much got thrown out of the window.. and I am now living life counting on Lady Luck to help me!






Fish with what you can, but always keep your line in the water!

I use a 7'9 one piece. I've tried the telescopic, but I wasn't a fan.
