My favorite tarpon rod is the 1 piece Hardy, but I fly to my poon fishing a fair amount so need a 4 pc. My guide seems to have a different rod every year and I don't like that b/c it takes me a day or so to get the timing down. I've heard the 4 piece Hardy isn't at all the same as the 1, otherwise this would be easy. Most all of the fly shops around me have closed in recent months so I can't try them out. Only thing I can come up with is ordering 4 sticks from a fly shop, lawn casting them all, then keep the one I want and send back the others. Any other ideas?

Just get the 4pcs Zephyrus 11wt. It's really not that noticeable between the 2, especially when you see that silver string coming down the line. I think you can feel it loading slightly better than the 1pcs. Also, if you are a gear head like I think you are (I'm sure I know who you are ;)), be the one of the first ones to get the new HBX 4pc. I hear it feels like a 1pc Zephyrus. I haven't been able to get my hands on one yet to try it out.
