Flying with a 2 piece?

We leave on Friday for the outer banks. My 8 wt is a 2 piece, so I'm sure I'll have to check it, right? What are the odds that the rod will make it intact?

    'Course, you could buy a 4 piece rod like a civilized person.

    But that's none of my business.

    You know how to make sure it arrives intact?

    2" PVC. Glue a cap on one end, screw another cap on the other end, and tape the crap out of it. It will get there.

    It's a Cuddy special. I bought it from him.

    I've got the PVC, and I've got the tape. But I didn't know if the TSA would take it apart and not put it back together.

    Also, dude, this apostrophe is completely unnecessary, even in the colloquial sense.

    I have taken my 2 piece rod on the plane. But it was only a 6' rod.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    What makes you think the TSA would be smart enough to take it apart? They're gov't employees.

    You mock me and I call TSA, give them your name and swarthy appearance, and whisper "Jihad."
