Only problem with a 4 piece rod is that it wont fit in most panniers... and will stick out pretty far left or right on most bikes. I carry a 4 piece rod on my R1200 and a 9' 4 piece sill sticks out a bit over my OEM panniers.. which makes it an issue for theft when I stop. The 6 piece rods break down into 15-18" sections depending on what length you buy.. that will fit in most hard panniers or soft luggage.
