      It is a 2 piece that came apart only thankfully! That was the first rod I ever bought myself, a cheap Shimano from like mid-90's. Still use it today!

Husband and father of 3 awesome kids, only one of which likes to fish. Been going up to Cass Lake, MN since I was a kid in the mid-70's. My Grandfathers ...more cousin owned a resort there for years (Tom's). Even though we're from Chicago, we can fish up there and most times find a family member or friend on the waters. Grew up on the Chain O' Lakes, but never really fished it other than from the pier (Used to SLAY the crappies there!). Recently though, my Father has been diagnosed with dimentia/alztheimers so I've kind of taken over the maintenance of his/our little 18' Crestliner and been taking him out on the Chain so hopefully we get some good results and have fun!
