Does the '2-piece' TD Cielo TDCEL762FP have 50/50 sections?

Post by ShoreBound » Sat Sep 22, 2007 9:27 am

Anybody owns this model, played with it, or seen it in stores? The specs says it's a two-piece rod but does it have 50/50 sections or it's just like the Steez STZ802HFBA that has the joint at the foregrip? I shot Daiwa an email already but I don't know when I'll get an answer as it's the weekend and this question is really bugging me :evil: My wife may kill me but I will have to buy one of these if it has 50/50 sections. My TD-Z badly needs a partner :evil22:

From this customer review on BPS http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/store ... eb207fec61 it looks as if you're out of luck, SB.

Sure :D

from the butt to forgrip it is 16 1/2 in. (1st section) The 2ed section is 74 1/2 in. Is there something you are worried about how is connects?

Thanks, bro. Actually, it's the portability that concerns me as I always fish from shore. Based on the lengths you gave, I think it's just too long.

If it helps the rod comes with Daiwa rod straps to hold the 2 sections together when transporting, making it just 6 feet.

6' traveling length is still kinda longer than what I'm used to but I'll think about it. I might just go custom and have a blank cut into two again.
